For Small Dogs and Puppies: For the removal of large roundworms (ascarids) and hookworms, give 1 tablet for each 10 lb of body weight (Dosage is designed to provide at least 2.27 mg per lb of body weight for dogs weighing over 5 lb and at least 4.54 mg per lb of body weight for dogs weighing less than 5 lb). For dogs weighing more than 10 lb, tablets may be broken in half to provide 1/2 tablet for each additional 5 lb of body weight. The presence of these parasites should be confirmed by laboratory fecal examination. Do not withhold food from dog prior to or after treatment. Place tablet directly into back of mouth or conceal tablet in a small amount of food. A follow-up fecal examination should be conducted 2-4 weeks after first treatment to determine the need for retreatment. Because anthelmintics cannot be relied upon to prevent re-infection 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 re-infection. Retreatment of adult dogs may be necessary at monthly intervals as determined by laboratory fecal examinations or in animals kept in known contaminated quarters. Consult your veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment, and control of parasitism. For Large Dogs: For the removal of large roundworms (ascarids) and hookworms, give 1 tablet for each 50 lb of body weight.
