- Delivery Info
Cestem XL flavoured tablets is a tasty, liver flavoured worming treatment designed for dogs weighing between 17kg and 35kg. Cestem XL tablets contain 525mg Febantel, 175mg Pyrantel and 175mg Praziquantel which kill all common types of intestinal worms that are in your dog’s system. The types of intestinal worms that Cestem XL treats include hookworms, ascarids, whipworms, tapeworms and roundworms, all of which are commonly found in the UK.
Cestem XL Tablets have been enhanced with liver flavouring to increase palatability and to make oral administration easier but it can be given with food if you have difficulty administering them. If possible, it is recommended that an accurate weight is determined before administration to ensure the correct dose of Cestem XL is given. Each Cestem XL tablet can easily be divided to enable you to give your dog the precise dose for its bodyweight (see dose rate below).
Adult dogs should be treated once every three months. A repeat dose can be given after 14 days if your dog is suffering from a particularly heavy infestation of roundworms and the initial dose has not treated all the worms.
17.5 kg = ½ a tablet
