For those animals living where reinfections are likely to occur, clients should be instructed in the steps to optimize prevention otherwise, retreatment may be necessary. This is true in cases of Dipylidium caninum where reinfection is almost certain to occur if fleas are not removed from the animal and its environment. In addition, for control of Echinococcus multilocularis, a program of regular treatment every 21 to 26 days may be indicated see E. multilocularis section below.
