Contraindications


When administered as recommended, the product is unlikely to cause vomiting. However, if vomiting does occur after treatment, do not repeat the dose. Do not administer to sick and convalescing animals. If a hypersensitive reaction occurs, treatment with the product should be discontinued.

Special warnings for each target species


It is recommended that adult dogs should be wormed routinely 2-4 times a year. Since the most common tapeworm of the dog (Dipylidium caninum) is transmitted by a flea and has a very short pre-patent period, it is important to pay attention to flea control to reduce the incidence of tapeworm in your pet.
