What is Tape Worm Tabs?

Tape Worm Tabs are for cats and are an over-the-counter treatment for tapeworms (no prescription required). Tape Worm Tabs remove both types of tapeworms and are 100% safe and effective.
For: Cats (over 6 weeks of age)
 
Benefits:
Single-dose formula makes for easy oral administration
Tablets can be crumbled and mixed with food
Effectively removes tape worms
Completely safe and effective
FDA approved for use in cats
Easy to administer

How it works:
Praziquantel is a cestocide. Praziquantel works by damaging the parasite's skin internally so the parasite disintegrates and is removed by the pet's immune system.

Cautions:
Side effects, while rare, may include increased salivation in cats. Since humans can contract tapeworms from animals, it’s important to maintain good personal hygiene. It’s also important to eliminate fleas on your pet because your pet can get tapeworms from swallowing fleas.


More Information:
Brand Name
Droncit Feline Tablets (Bayer), Tape Worm Tabs Feline (Tradewinds)
Generic Name
Praziquantel (pra-zee-kwaní-tell)

What is this medication used for:
Praziquantel is an anthelminthic (dewormer) used to treat tapeworm (cestode) infestation.

Availability:
Praziquantel is available as prescription tablets and injectable (Droncit) and non-prescription tablets (Tape Worm Tabs).

How this medicine should be used:
Praziquantel is FDA approved for use in cats. The usual dose of praziquantel, given as a one time dose, for cats and kittens over 6 weeks old is under 4 lbs give 1/2 tablet, 5-11 lbs give 1 tablet, over 11 lbs give 1 1/2 tablets. The tablets may be crumbled and mixed with food. Fasting is neither necessary nor recommended. It may be necessary to repeat the dose 2 or 3 weeks later.

What are the side effects:
Side effects are rare but may include vomiting, loss of appetite, drowsiness or diarrhea in dogs and increased salivation and diarrhea in cats.

What special precautions are there:
Praziquantel should not be used in animals allergic to it. Because humans can contract tapeworm from animals, it is important to maintain good personal hygiene. It is also important to eliminate fleas on the pet and in the household and to not feed the pet rodents or uncooked meat or fish. To prevent reinfection, daily cleanup of stools is recommended.

In the event of overdose:
Contact your veterinarian or veterinary emergency room. While rare, symptoms of overdose may include vomiting, loss of appetite, diarrhea and salivation.

How should I store this medication:

Awesome Product! Why spend the money on a expensive products PLUS a vet bill? This product works without a prescription! We tried it on a stray and one pill took care of the problem! Fast and simple, and it works! 06/22/2011
Worked again! This is the second time I've had to turn to this product for a tapeworm problem (we're going to buy a better flea medication to help prevent this problem) and it works wonderfully and quickly! 04/26/2011
Feline Tape Worms Tapeworm tabs for cats product review: One of the most frustrating problems seen by feline guardians is the often re-infestation of cats with tapeworms, which appear to animal guardians as tiny movable rice like segments often seen around the base of the tail of cats, near the rear door or in the stool itself. Since cats are such fastidious groomers, tapeworms are more of a problem in them over dogs in my opinion, as because they are so meticulous groomers, cats will often ingest fleas, which is how most pets get infected. While in most cases tapeworms do not make cats clinically ill, because of the risk to humans, it is important to rid your cat of these worms. For years we only had effective prescription medications for this such as Droncit. Now with this great generic product and same active ingredient, feline guardians now have a safe, effective and economic over the counter alternative to expensive tapeworm injections given at the vet or expensive prescription pills. I therefore give this product an overall efficacy rating of a 5 with a taste of 5 as well. 04/20/2009
THIS REALLY WORKS..BUY NOW!! I hate taking my cat to the vet for ONE butt worm pill! One she is old and hates to travel and second it's ridiculous to pay a vet fee then an expensive pill for something I KNOW all about because I have had my cat over 15 yrs and this is nothing new. I did some research online and ran across this pill. I called a friend of mine who is a vet in D.C. and told her the ingredients. She said it would do the job depending on how bad the problem is I might have to give her two. So on that I ordered the bottle. I gave my cat ONE pill and NO MORE BOOTY WORMS!!! No vet fees, no ridiculous price for a ONE pill!!! I highly recommend this WELL worth the money!! 07/20/2008
tapeworm help These pills work, for those that have had problems getting cat to digest this there is another medicine. 1-800-petmeds sell pro-fender, it works the same as the flea drops, put on the back of the neck / shoulder blade area. you will need your vet to approve this prescription, its a phone call not a visit... a little more $$ but easier than trying to shove pill down a cats throat. I have five cats and I have tried everything. this works. so does flea meds that include tapeworm medication. you will need vets approval for that med also 10/14/2014

Answer: 
Tapeworms may be seen crawling on your cats feces in the litter box. Your cat may scoot its behind on the ground although that trait is more seen in dogs. Your cat may also vomit up a tapeworm several inches in length. If you suspect your cat has tapeworms please consult with your veterinarian
immediately and handle your pet with minimal contact. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after coming into contact with your pet. Tapeworms are able to spead from cats to humans.
