Adult dogs should be wormed routinely every three months. The most common tapeworm of the dog is transmitted by the flea, so attention should also be paid to flea control. It is important to worm puppies very regularly for roundworm at two weekly intervals from the age of 2 weeks to 8 weeks. Worming should then be carried out at 12, 16 and 24 weeks of age. Thereafter, the adult regime of four times per year is recommended. Nursing females should be treated at the same time and as frequently as puppies up to 12 weeks of age.
DOSING INSTRUCTIONS: It is important to follow the instructions carefully.
For routine treatment of puppies and adult dogs, give one tablet per 2kg (4.4lbs) bodyweight. The following table provides a dose guide:
Bodyweight (kgs) Bodyweight (lbs) No. Tablets required
Up to 2 Up to 4.4 1
