If your dog has had fleas, there’s a chance they have tapeworms too. Tapeworms can be transmitted to dogs when they inadvertently consume fleas, most commonly when they lick, chew or bite at their hair and skin to relieve itching. Dogs that hunt or chase rodents and rabbits are also at an increased risk for infection. Luckily, one treatment with the recommended tablet dose of Bayer Tapeworm DE wormer safely removes tapeworms. Product packaging outlines dosage and administration based on dog’s body weight. Steps should be taken to control fleas on the premises in order to prevent reinfection; otherwise retreatment will be necessary. This is especially true in cases of tapeworms transmitted by fleas where reinfection is almost certain to occur if fleas are not removed from the animal and its environment. Consult your veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment and control of parasitism. Keep away from children.
