Gets rid of the tapeworms fast! Took several tries to get kitty to take it. Crushing it up in wet food, tuna, tuna water didn’t work. He was not gonna be fooled. We finally just held him and put it in his mouth, which was like a suicide mission. Kitty was maaaddd! We did a 2nd treatment a few months later and tried it with one of those pill pocket treats, that did the trick. He didn’t even know what was going on, just wanted those treats and swallowed it whole. Pain free and easy!
Read the reviews!!

I am going to assume that this works though I just gave it to my two older cats. However I read the reviews before giving this to them and invested in a pill shooter. One cat took the shooter great. The other older one not so much. I really had to slather it in heavy packet soft food with alot of juice to get him to eat it half a pill at a time. But I am assuming it works for the worm problem. As I don't see any little rice looking pieces anymore :)
cats ate it just fine

I have 2 stray cats that have made their home in our backyard. I recently noticed 1 of them had a lot of tape-worm segments coming out of his butt. He is a feral cat, so I wasn't sure how I was going to administer tapeworm pills to him. (even though the one is feral, he still rubs against our legs and is very loving, but if we were to try to pick him up, he would probably bite or scratch..We trapped him & had him 'fixed' at the vet, but I didn't want to trap him just to take him in for tapeworms) The reviews I read had said the cats can smell it in their food and won't eat it. So I used a pill cutter and cut it in half, then used about 1/2 tsp of cat pate' canned food and made a little ballI have 2 stray cats that have made their home in our backyard.

The cat gobbled it down and didn't give it a second thought. I did this 3 times with him (for 1 1/2 pills because he is a big cat), and I did it twice for the other cat. They both ate the little food balls, with 1/2 a pill in each, with no problem. I then followed up with front-line on both of them. I have 3 indoor cats, which are not great eaters, so I will most likely need to dissolve it in water and use a syringe to squirt down their throats. I recently found fleas on them, so I treated them with front-line, and will probably medicate with the tapeworm pill, just to be on the safe side.… more
Worms be gone
on Feb 4, 2018
I have 2 cats and 1 showed signs of tapeworms. I was grossed out and instantly started reading reviews on my pets suppliers, Chewy, website. I like what I heard about Bayer de-wormer so I purchased it. I gave both my cats 1 pill each and quarantined them both to one room for a week. I never found any stray remnants of worms around other than a few larvae on 1 cats bed. I constantly washed all their bedding and blankets for the whole week. I also cleaned their litter box daily. I haven't seen any worms since.
Packaging problems, 3 smaller tablets loose in a bottle
on Feb 2, 2018
Although it seems to be working (no little pieces where they were sleeping), it was difficult to administer due to at least 2 of the 3 tablets being broken up. They really need to consider blister packing each tablet. I have 7 cats I was treating & it wasn't easy putting little pieces together to estimate a tablet worth. I needed to get the treatment done so I went ahead. Kind of disappointed at Bayer over that.

I use a top notch topical all in one flea drop for my cats yet ONE will get tapeworms NEVER fails this time of year and when they pulled the Praziquantel off the market for a while i had to get this from overseas ..Yea Crazy ...But leave it to Chewy to get what people want :-) !!! Chewy your the best at keeping awesome stock of products

Worked great for both of my cats. One of my cats ate it when I crushed it up with some tuna. The other liked it better crushed up with some wet food, so you may have to play around with what you put it in depending on cats preference. Easy to crush and not as big as I thought it'd be. Would definitely recommend.
Unfortunately will have to repurchase
on Feb 16, 2018
I've used this in the past before but unfortunately it hasn't rid my kitties of their tapeworm so I will have to repurchase a second time. We had a horrible summer with fleas so I'm not surprised this tapeworm is so defiant. Great product just wish it worked the first time around.
Same as Droncit from the vet
on Feb 15, 2018Top 1000 Contributor
I researched this product when I looked for a cheaper alternative to Droncit,
which I can only get through a mail order vet supply,and need a script from
my vet to obtain.This is the exact same,right down to the mg./markings on the
tablet.Thanks,Bayer and Chewy!

This product was fairly easy to administer. I smashed the pill and stirred it into the cat's wet food. I would distribute the pill between two feedings next time because my cats definitely stopped eating when they tasted it. But overall a good product, no visible side effects.
