How to Use Cat Tapeworm Medicine
So you have noticed the telltale signs that your cat has tapeworm? Once you have purchased cat tapeworm medicine, it is important to correctly administer the medication to your cat for maximum effectiveness. Here is a step-by-step guide to giving your cat tapeworm medicine:
1. Make sure your cat is old enough to use cat tapeworm medicine. Tape Worm Tabs may be used on cats and kittens over 6 weeks of age.
- 4 pounds and under: give ½ tablet as a single dose
- 5 to 11 pounds: give 1 tablet as a single dose
- Over 11 pounds: give 1 ½ tablets as a single dose
3. You may give cat tapeworm medicine by mouth, or crumble the tablet and mix it with some canned cat food that your cat will finish completely. A pet piller may make it easier for you to give your cat tapeworm medicine, or you can try using a Pill Pocket.
4. A single dose of cat tapeworm medicine will usually be sufficient. However, if you continue to see signs that your cat has tapeworms, you may give a second dose 3-4 weeks later.
5. Since the most common way your cat gets tapeworm is by ingesting a flea carrying the tapeworm larvae, be sure to treat your cat and your home for fleas to ensure your cat does not become re-infected with tapeworms.
