Description

Cestex is an oral medication prescribed by veterinarians to safely and effectively remove tapeworms in kittens, puppies, and adult dogs and cats. Best of all, your furry friend does not need to fast before being treated. Each tablet is coated with a film, making dosing easy, and Cestex will not leave an unpleasant taste in your pal’s mouth.

Uses

Cestex tablets are indicated for the removal of tapeworm.

Possible Side Effects

In very rare instances, vomiting or diarrhea may occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effects that seem unusual or bothersome to your pet.

Drug & Food Interactions

There are no known drug interactions while using Cestex.

Precautions

Do not give Cestex to kittens and puppies less than 7 weeks of age. Because humans can contract tapeworm from pets, it's important to maintain good personal hygiene. To prevent reinfection, daily cleanup of stools is recommended.
