For Removal of Hookworms in Puppies & Dogs:
For Removal of Large Roundworms (Ascarids) in Puppies & Dogs:
To Prevent Reinfection of Large Roundworms in Puppies, Adult Dogs & Lactating Bitches after Whelping
For the removal of large roundworms (ascarids) and hookworms, give 1 tablet for each 10 lbs. of body weight. (Dosage is designed to provide at least 2.27 mg per pound of body weight for dogs weighing over 5 lbs, and at least 4.54 mg per pound of body weight for dogs weighing less than 5lbs). For dogs weighing more than 10lbs, tablets may be broken in half to provide 1/2 tablet for each additional 5 lbs. body weight. The presence of these parasites should be confirmed by laboratory fecal examination. Do not withhold food from your dog prior to or after treatment.
Place tablet directly in back of mouth or conceal tablet in a small amount of food. A follow-up fecal examination should be conducted in 2 to 4 weeks after first treatment to determine the need for retreatment.
Since anthelmintics cannot be relied upon to prevent reinfection or to remove larvae not present in the intestinal tract at the time of initial treatment, for maximum control, it is recommended that puppies be treated at 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 and 10 weeks of age. Lactating bitches should be treated 2-3 weeks after whelping. Adult dogs should be routinely treated at monthly intervals to protect against environmental T. canis reinfection. Retreatment of adult dogs may be necessary at monthly intervals as determined by laboratory fecal examination or in animals kept in known contaminated quarters.
