Over-the-counter cat wormer?

Discussion in 'Other Pets & Livestock' started by Dipsy Doodle Doo, Jan 20, 2011.

  1. Hi and thanks in advance!
    Are Tape Worm Tabs (praziquantel) effective? One dose will clear them?
    Do I need to treat my dogs since they have been exposed to this wormy cat?

    I have no clue about the dog, but am thinking yes you will need to treat. They have been exposed to the fleas, same as the cats.

  3. Thanks!
    Oh, the dogs are on monthly treatment for fleas, heartworm, etc. --- you think still?
    It's one of the youngest dumped kittens with the worms.
