Oral administration.
The tablets are administered by opening the animal's mouth and pushing the tablet over the back of the tongue so that it cannot be rejected. Alternatively, a tablet can be wrapped in a piece of meat or butter and offered to the animal or crushed and mixed with the food.
A single dose is all that is required. However, for dogs in rural areas and for packs of hounds this dose should be repeated every four weeks to ensure that newly acquired tapeworms are destroyed before reaching maturity. Dosing must be associated with strict control of the dog's diet to ensure that uncooked offal is not eaten.
Use during pregnancy and lactation
The product may be administered to pregnant females. It is safe to the female herself, to the unborn foetus and to the newborn young.
