Zerokrim Plus tablets provide a broad-spectrum efficacy. This is achieved with 3 effective ingredients having different spectra of activity. Praziquantel is effective against cestodes (tapeforms). Pyrantel embonate is effective against hookworms and ascarids. Febantel is effective against nematode parasites including whipworms.
For the removal of large roundworms (Ascarids) and hookworms, give 1 tablet for each 5kgs. of body weight. (Dosage is designed to provide at least 2.27 mg per pound of body weight for dogs weighing over 2.5kg., and at least 4.54 mg per pound of body weight for dogs weighing less than 2.5kg.). For dogs weighing more than 10 lbs., tablets may be broken in half to provide 1/2 tablet for each additional 2.5kg. body weight. The presence of these parasites should be confirmed by laboratory faecal examination. Do not withhold food from your dog prior to or after treatment.
Place tablet directly into back of mouth or conceal tablet in a small amount of food. A follow-up fecal examination should be conducted in 2 to 4 weeks after first treatment to determine the need for retreatment.
Since anthelmintics cannot be relied upon to prevent reinfection or to remove larvae not present in the intestinal tract at the time of initial treatment, for maximum control, it is recommended that puppies be treated at 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, and 10 weeks of age. Lactating bitches should be treated 2-3 weeks after whelping. Adult dogs should be routinely treated at monthly intervals to protect against environmental T. canis reinfection. Re treatment of adult dogs may be necessary at monthly intervals as determined by laboratory faecal examinations or in animals kept in known contaminated quarters.
