Control of roundworm (Toxocara canis and Toxocara leonina), whipworm (Trichuris vulpis), hookworm (Ancylostoma caninum, A. braziliense and Uncinaria stenocephala), tapeworm (Dipylidium caninum, Taenia ovis, T. hydatigena, T. pisiformis) and the hydatid tapeworm (Echinococcus granulosus) in dogs.
Weigh dog before treatment. Fasting is not necessary.
Dose rate. 1 tablet/10 kg bodyweight. Dosing should be rounded up to the nearest 1/4 tablet. Use the following dosages as a guide.
1.2 to 2.5 kg bodyweight. 1/4 tablet. 2.6 to 5.0 kg. 1/2 tablet. 5.1 to 10.0 kg. 1 tablet. Over 10 kg. 1 tablet for every 10 kg bodyweight.
Dose frequency. Hydatid tapeworm. Treat every 6 weeks. Other tapeworms. Treat every 3 months and treat dog regularly for fleas. Roundworm, hookworm. Treat at 2, 4, 8, and 12 weeks of age and thereafter every 3 months. Whipworm. Treat every 6 to 8 weeks after 3 months of age.
Pregnant and lactating bitches. Treat prior to mating, and 10 days before and 4 weeks after whelping.
Zone control. Dogs can be re-infested easily with these parasites, so it is particularly important to not only treat the dog, but to also control the environment. This can be achieved by daily disposal of droppings and flea control. Dogs in country areas should never be fed offal from any source.
