The treatment consists of three doses given at weekly intervals. Tablets may be taken whole or crushed and mixed into
the cat’s food. If your cat dislikes tablets, be sure to use a strong-smelling food, such as a piece of cheese, to mask
FIRST DOSE: Give the appropriate number of PINK tablets (for roundworm) for the cat’s weight, as shown below.
SECOND DOSE: One week later, give the same number of FAWN tablets (for tapeworm).
THIRD DOSE: After another week, repeat
the first dose of PINK tablets to complete the treatment.
Weigh your pet before treatment to accurately establish the correct dosage. You can do this by weighing yourself on
the bathroom scales, and repeating whilst holding your pet. The difference is the weight of the cat. For cats weighing
more than 5kg (11lbs), give one extra tablet per kg. Cats should be retreated every 3 months.
Nursing females should
be treated for roundworms 2 weeks after giving birth, and every 2 weeks until weaning.
