Praziquantel is used to treat infestations of schistosoma (a type of worm that lives in the bloodstream) and liver fluke (a type of worm that lives in or near the liver). Praziquantel is in a class of medications called anthelmintics. It works by killing the worms.
| Benefits |
Praziquantel works by damaging the parasite's skin internally so the parasite disintegrates and is removed by the pet's immune system.Main Purpose
Remove the common tapeworms, Dipylidium caninum and Taenia taeniaeformis, from cats and kittens.
| Cautions |
To prevent harm to you and your pet, read the entire label and enclosed directions before each use. Follow all directions and precautionary statements carefully. Avoid contact with eyes, and wash your hands thoroughly after each use.
It’s important to remove all fleas on your pet because your pet can get tapeworms from swallowing tapeworm egg carrying fleas. Steps should be taken to control fleas 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.

Crushed the tablet to powder and mixed into wet food. Unfortunately this guy didn't like the first taste. I added and added more wet cat food, canned tuna and tuna juice. Not sure he got it all. Waited the recommended 2 weeks to TRY to check him for worm segments.
Not confident that he is worm free, because I am not able to hold him still to look.
Hoping for the best based on the many 'success' reviews I have read online.
Thankful this is a non-prescription option.
to this we were seeing tape worm segments on a regular basis.
Fabulous for those you cannot afford a Vet trip to treat tapeworms!!
Assuredly, many of us love our cats but can't afford that trip even though we want to keep our cats as healthy as possible for something as worms!
