What is Tape Worm Tabs Cat?

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.
