Do you have the dosage chart for cats over 11 pounds? I have a 25lb Maine Coon cat.
Answer by anniApr 04, 2023
Technically for 25lb it’s 2.7 tablets. The dose is 2.5mg per pound. Each tablet is 23 mg.

How many cats/kittens does this treat
Answer by Van7Aug 16, 2023
It depends on the weight of the cats! It comes with 3 tablets. I suggest you take into account the individual cat’s weight and follow the dosage that’s instructed! The instructions state that cats under 4lbs should be given half a tablet. You should be able to treat 6 cats under 4lbs.

Can I put the pill in a medicine syringe with a little bit of water to make it into a liquid so it's easier to give it to the cat?
Answer by ChewyJul 12, 2019
This de-wormer can be diluted into a liquid and administered via oral syringe.

Does it also kill the worms on the outside of the body near the rear?
Answer by ChewyNov 02, 2018
This will only affect internal tapeworms.

We shall see

I have four litters of kittens, various ages oldest is four months one of my littlest has been dragging her, but not to mention appetites, etc. insane fits things so tiny and for the mom. This was recommended now we will see. Easy enough to give just have it ready because kittens squirm. She spit it out the first time, I pushed it back and hugged her and rubbed her throat. She was fine and stayed curled up with me. I figure if One has them they all have them test for the money hoping they are just tape worms in there I have liquid to help with others I put in the water anyway it’s all natural. Drontal is great but $$$$$$visit, except for the pawed combat lol

These tables come in handy when taking care of stray kitties. I noticed a few had some worms exiting their behinds and always order this to help them be healthier and more comfortable. Works really fast. I usually keep the kitties in the garage overnight to make sure they are safe. The next morning, I didn't notice any worms. Used on kittens and adults.

Works well-hard to administer..

My cat is not the easiest to give a pill to, and I had to give him 1.5 tabs since he is over 11 lbs. The tablets have a score down the middle which made it fairly easy to split them in half. They apparently do not taste good at all, since mixing with his food did not work. Worth the effort to get them down him!

For a couple of my cats I had to use Feline Greenies Pill Pockets for Cats Natural Soft Cat Treat, Catnip Flavor for them to eat it and for a couple I had to administer it myself with my hand so I made sure they got it and got wormed but this product works wonderful and I see no more wormies coming out my cats' rears!

I have a stray cat that’s been coming around for a while and hanging out on my porch. I noticed the other day he had a tapeworm segment exiting his behind. I ordered this medicine and gave it to him around 2pm today. I didn’t expect it to work for at least 48 hours. At 6pm he ran across the road up to my house and the entire tapeworm was exiting his behind. As gross as it was I was completely surprised that this medicine worked so quickly. That’s insane. So it 100% works. I never leave reviews for anything but I had to for this. For everyone’s well-being, I will refrain from adding a photo to this review. You’re welcome.

actually worked

i have tried many countless other dewormers bc going to the vet is a tad bit expensive as i am a full time college student. i have two cats and this worked perfectly for the both of them. i went ahead and also gave each of them flea meds and then gave them this (i don’t think cats can have tapeworms unless they have fleas bc they have to ingest them somehow) and within 24 hours, it looked like they were fine! it’s been a few weeks now (i do NOT let my cats outside anymore since they have been administered both medications) and i haven’t seen any tapeworm segments on my bed and i haven’t seen any tapeworms on their behind. very happy with this purchase :)

works well

my barn cats keep getting tapeworms and now that i have figure out how to get this pill in them it works great with one pill for each of them, so nice not having to get it from the vet because this happens every summer to them.

I definitely recommend this product as soon as I gave my cat the pill. He pooped a huge tapeworm out just within 2 hours. I haven’t see. Anymore tape worms since he took only one pill.

My little murderer is an outside kitty as we have a ton of property. She takes care of the garden pests and other pesky rodents (though I try to keep her from the birds!). Because of this, however, I recently discovered signs of a tapeworm. It was VERY alarming- I had been petting her and was EXAMINING this thing that I thought was wet rice when it MOVED. I panicked and ordered this from Chewy. The package came the next day or 2 days later, Willow ate up the pill and is worm free. The fast delivery is UNBEATABLE!! I have always appreciated it, but this time I really needed it fast and was so relieved. Chewy continues to impress me.
