The importance of regular use of a dog dewormer should never be forgotten.  The most common intestinal parasites affecting our pets are tapeworms.  They rarely pose a threat as long as any infection is treated swiftly. For poorly or underweight pets the additional burden of tapeworms competing for nourishment can lead to significant weight-loss. Tapeworms can be passed to our pets by fleas.  So alongside any regular deworming program should be an ongoing form of dog flea control.

Using Tradewinds Tapeworm Tabs for Dogs

Each Tradewinds Tape Worm Canine Tablet contains 34mg of Praziquantel.  The dosage needed depends upon the size of the dog being treated.

  • Dogs up to 5lbs – 1/2 tablets
  • Dogs 6 to 10 lbs – 1 tablet
  • Dogs 11 to 15 lbs  – 1-1/2 tablets
  • Dogs 16 to 30 lbs – 2 tablets
  • Dogs 31 to 45 lbs  – 3 tablets
  • Dogs 46 to 60 lbs – 4 tablets
  • Dogs over 60 lbs – 5 tablets

Puppies over 4 weeks can safely be treated with this canine dewormer.  The dosage should be given in one go.  They can either be given whole or crumbled onto a favorite meal, but be sure to watch they consume the entire dose needed.

It is usual to carry out regular deworming of dogs that go outside regularly around every two to three months.  Such regular use of tapeworm tablets will prevent their ever being a significant infestation, but if you are treating a dog for the first time, and the infestation is particularly serious you may need to repeat the medication after a week or so.

Regular deworming is a necessary part of dog ownership, and particularly important when small children live under the same route as it is not uncommon for toddlers to pick up tapeworms from both dogs and cats.   If you do not feel your dog is likely to be exposed to tapeworms speak to your vet about a less regular use of such medication.  Alongside tapeworm tablets another key way to prevent the spread of these parasites is by regular removal of pet waste.

Praziquantel Tapeworm Tabs for Dogs

Praziquantel is the preferred method of removing tapeworm infestations, as it is mild yet effective at removing both T. pisiformis & D. caninumn. Until recently though it has only been available with a prescription.  Tradewinds Praziquantel Tapeworm Tablets for Dogs contain the same 34mg of this active ingredient but are available as an over the counter pet medicine.  Tradewinds also produce Praziquantel Tapeworm Tabs for Cats, supplied in a bottle of 3 23mg tablets.  If you are currently using a more expensive prescription only tapeworm tablet for your dog speak to your vet about switching to non-prescription Praziquantel.

  1. Is there a natural way to remove tape worms from small dogs of 4lbs or less?

  2. Tammy, two “natural” options I have heard of include diatomaceous earth (but make sure you get food grade) and cider vinegar. However neither will guarantee to remove tapeworms which can be particularly serious for small dogs. Tradewinds tapeworm dewormer should be fine for your pet and 1/2 a tablet will ensure tapeworms are gone.

  3. Rather than going to the vet I decide to give these tabs a try. They worked amazing for my cat. We generally do not have fleas but some how my cat had a bad case of tape worms. Within 15 hours all signs of the worms were gone. After using you have to be sure there are no more fleas that you cat will eat. They will be re infected as this is not a preventative only a treatment. I would suggest this product to my friends and family. Buyer beware.. Be 100 percent sure what you cat has is tape worm if you are unable to identify the symptoms as tape worm it is always best to check with your cat’s vet.
