DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Tapeworm infection is one of the most common internal parasite problems actually observed by cat owners. The presence of tapeworms is indicated by the presence of tapeworm segments passed with the feces. Tapeworm segments are white, pinkish-white or yellow-white and similar in size and shape to flattened grains of rice. The segments are most frequently observed lying on the animal's droppings or, less often, moving across a freshly passed stool. Segments are also found on the hair around the anus of the animal, or occasionally on the animal's bedding. Cats become infected with tapeworms after eating fleas or small rodents rats, mice which are infected with tapeworm larvae. Consult your veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment and control of parasitism.

Steps should be taken to control fleas and rodents on the premises in order to prevent reinfection otherwise, retreatment will be necessary. This is especially true in cases of tapeworms transmitted by fleas Dipylidium caninum where reinfection is almost certain to occur if fleas are not removed from the animal and its environment. If reinfection occurs, tapeworm segments may be observed within one month of the initial treatment.
Isolated incidents of either salivation or diarrhea have been reported following treatment, but were considered nonsignificant. If these signs are observed and they persist, consult your veterinarian.
