Cestem Worming Tablets
Cestem Worming Tablets is a broad spectrum wormer for the treatment of all intestinal worms, including roundworms, tapeworms, hookworms and whipworms in dogs.
It is supplied in tablets, either individually or in packs of 104.
Cestem Flavoured tablet for medium and small dogs is a yellow brown divisible tablet containing 150mg febantel, 50mg pyrantel and 50mg praziquantel with a liver flavouring.
Dosage and administration:
The recommended dose rate is one tablet of Cestem Flavoured for medium and small dogs per 10 kg bodyweight or 1 tablet of Cestem Flavoured for large dogs per 18-35kg, in one administration.
The smaller tablet size, Cestem for medium and small dogs, should be used to achieve accurate dosing in dogs weighing less than 17.5 kg.
For oral administration, the tablets can be given to the dog with or without food. No starvation is needed before or after treatment. To ensure administration of a correct dose, body weight should be determined as accurately as possible. The dosing program should be established by the veterinary surgeon.
For routine worm control adult dogs should be treated every 3 months. In case of confirmed single infestation by cestode or by nematode, a monovalent product containing a cestocide or a nematocide alone should be preferred. For routine treatment a single dose is recommended.
In the event of heavy roundworm infestation a repeat dose should be given after 14 days. If an infestation caused by Echinococcus (E. granulosus) is detected in dogs, a repetition of the treatment is recommended for safety purposes.
