Do you give all tablets to 1 cat? Do you space out the tablets?

Asked by: Mandi92
You do not give one cat all 3 tablets at once. Depending on your cat's weight (like mentioned above in 1st answer) you give your cat ONE dose (again depending on weight). If tapeworms are still present 3 wks later then another dose can be given. (you can see parts of the worms on/around your cat's butt & places they sit/sleep. they look like small grains of rice, white to yellowish in color) If not, then time between doses is 3 months for prevention, but if fleas are taken care of then I don't think they need it. I am NOT a professional at all, this is just what I've read & experienced w my 3 cats.

How many hrs do I wait in between doses for my cat

Asked by: Lump
This product should be given as a one time dose. RETREATMENT:Steps should be taken to control fleas and rodents on the premises in order to prevent reinfection; otherwise, retreatment will be necessary. This is especially true in cases of tapeworms transmitted by fleas (Dipylidium caninum) where reinfection is almost certain to occur if you do not remove fleas from your petand the immediate environment. If reinfection occurs, tapeworm segments may be observed within one month of the initial treatment.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER PILLS ARE GIVEN AND HOW DO YOU KNOW THERE GONE

Asked by: CHANEL
When cats are infected, tapeworm segments (actual pieces of the worm that resemble grains of rice) can often be seen on the fur around a cat's hind end. Please note, it takes 30-120 minutes for this product to take effect and 24 hours to fully complete and be out of the cats system. The worms will come out when the cat goes to the bathroom, although may be in segments or already dissolved from the treatment.

The clerk who sold this medication to my husband told him it was safe to give our nursing cat I just read a question that said it is not advised to give a nursing cat however she just took her dose before I had read this will this hurt my newborn kitten?

Asked by: Smokeysmommy
If you believe that your feline friend is pregnant and that she is suffering with worms, the vet visit is important. You need a proper diagnosis of both conditions. There are many dewormers on the market, but each of them targets and kills different types of intestinal worms. This is why it's so important to identify the exact type of worm your kitty is suffering from, if any. Your vet will take a fecal sample and examine it for any signs of the parasites to determine which medication to prescribe.. Please consult with your veterinarian.

Do you only give another pill if the worms don't subside? Or do you give them daily?

Asked by: Knicole13
Thank you for your question. One dose of medication is all that is needed unless reinfection occurs. If necessary you may repeat treatment within 3 weeks. The Companion Animal Parasite Council, recommends you deworm kittens every 2 weeks from 6 weeks of age to 3 months, then deworm monthly until 6 months of age. And deworm adult cats every 3 months.

Thank you for your question. Yes, it is safe to dewomer all of your cats even if they do not display signs of worms. It Is recommended kittens be wormed every two weeks until twelve weeks of age, then monthly until six months of age.

It comes with 3 tablets, am I supposed to give my cat one a day for 3 days? Or just 1, since she’s between 5-11 pounds 

Asked by: KkSal
Thank you for your question. For a cat between 5-11lbs you would give 1 tablet only as one dose treatment. You would just have an additional supply for future use if necessary.

If all the cats eat together excluding kittens how will I know how many tables to put in or if they got enough medicine they are wild they stay and eat but I can't catch them yet

Asked by: Cheryl
if they’re wild, put the pill mashed in a small amount of food that they can eat in one or 2 bites then make separate batches for each cat and offer it individually. get tuna just incase they won’t eat it.. or use that instead of cat food to give the dose. a lot of cats hate the flavor of the pill. if they have tapeworms they more than likely have fleas, you can buy a 20lb bag of food grade DE (must be food grade), and dust the areas they sleep in and ideally rub it in their fur once a week til the fleas are gone. it causes dry skin so only do it once a week. 1-2tbsp can be added to their wet food and a little water (once per day) for 14-90 days and it will get rid of most worms. tapeworms are harder to deal with so try the bayer first. you can easily research food grade DE to naturally deworm/deflea mammals including u. good luck! it took me about 2 weeks of feeding and just sitting there close by the food until a wild kitten would let me pet it. the fleas were so easy to get rid of especially since she was so young and tiny.

I recently gave this medicine to my kittens and the worms are gone but one of them is still experiencing diarrhea. That has always gone away with the other cats. She didnt have it before the tapeworms.

Asked by: Heav
give the cat probiotics, pet ultimate or fortiflora are great options and can be found on amazon. you can mix baked sweet potatoes in their food, even with probiotics just make sure the potatoe is back to room temp so it doesn’t hurt your cat nor kill the probiotics

I took in a friend's cat temporarily and saw segments sticking, so I bought your tapeworm Dewormer Tablets. Do I need to also de worm my indoor cats who are in close contact with the infected cat? And do I administer a second dose?

Asked by: 7 cats
Thank you for your question. If you find one pet has worms, others may as well. That is because they share the same environment and therefore the same risk factors. Generally only one dose is necessary, if reinfection occurs, tapeworm segments may be observed within one month of the initial treatment. You can redose if necessary within 3-4 weeks. Steps should be taken to control fleas and rodents on the premises in order to prevent reinfection; otherwise, retreatment will be necessary.

I crumbled the pill into my cat’s wet food but it took him around 6 hours to finish the wet food just because he’s more of a “grazer” when it comes to eating. As long as he finished it within 24 hours will it have the same effectiveness?

Thank you for your question. Yes, the medication will still be effective.
