Cestex 7 8
Treats Tapeworm Effectively! I got these prescribed by my cat's vet after discovering a bad tapeworm infection during her comprehensive exam. I was given two doses-- one to give to her the next day with food, and one to give two weeks from that day with food. All I had to do was put it in some canned tuna and she ate it all with no problem. After the first dose, I didn't see any tapeworm segments around her backside or in her stool, and there were no more "sesame seeds," or tapeworm eggs, on the blanket she sleeps on. I don't think the second dose was even necessary, but my vet requested I give it to her as a preventive measure. She is also using Revolution for flea and heartworm prevention and has been doing very well. Glad I could treat this problem! 11/24/2014
2 cats several doses I have tried no other worm pill but Cestex for tapeworms for 2 cats and have tried it several times. It initially works but then the worms come back. I know that these kind of worms (flea larvae) are caused by cats picking fleas off and digesting them. I do give my cats their monthly flea medicine. One takes Advantage Multi Pro and the other we changed to Revolution due to her stomach issues with Advantage. However, both of them have worms again. It's an endless fight. 09/28/2014
WORKS! The last time I got this pill from the vet and it was very expensive. I was pleased to find it here on pet meds! The tape worm is gone and Hazel is great! Thank you 1800 pet meds! 07/16/2012
Cestex better than Drontil I love Cestex because it is so tiny. I can easily hide it in a Pill Pocket or a chunk of fresh chicken and my cat will eat it as if it is a treat and not even know it is in there. I've had good luck with it working the first time on my cats. One pill is all I need. And from what I've read it is a relatively safe drug. Drontil is about the size of an adult round aspirin and the thought of some vet cramming that down my pet's throat just makes me ill. I do not understand why people do this to their animals when they could easily give them something tiny and hide it in their food. As long as the animal will take it this way, it is a much, much better option than Drontil for me. 02/26/2011
Did not work at all I gave this to both my cats and it did not work at all they still have worms after two doses...Very disappointed. 01/13/2011

Answer:The medication is good for 1 year unless the medication expires sooner according to the manufacturer.
How long will it take before the tape worms are dead and gone from the cat
Answer:The cat will excrete the tapeworm within a day. However, tapeworms are caused by cats ingesting fleas, the ingested flea becomes larvae/worm. Flea medicine will keep them from having them for a while but before the next dose, they'll have some fleas again, hence more worms. It's an endless cycle it seems!! I would love to know if you found something that works better. venisblue at g mail
Answer:One dose is used to treat tapeworms with Cestex, normally working within 24 hours. It paralyzes the tapeworm causing it to lose its grip on the intestinal wall and is then digested with no sign of the parasite seen in the stool after treatment.
I have had to use this on my pet before...the vet gave her a 25mg. Would I have to give my pet 2 of these tablets or would that cause an overdose? Does 1 tablet work just as good?
