Yes it is, but if they swollow one, and eggs are being layed in their tummy, they get tapeworms, so I heard, and one of my cats has them, so I want to treat them all.

Get the med from the vet.

I would think the vet has to give out the dosage. You can call the vet and see if you can drop off a stool sample or would you need to bring them in for weighing and proper amount of meds.

That's what I was thinking, that the Vet or Tech needs to administer. This will be a task, taking all 3, I guess I will have to call and double check, thanks.

If the Cat has Tapeworms already then get Drontal to worm the Cat from the Tech.

Yes, I have seen them on one of my cats, after he used the Litterbox, so I know he has them, maybe the others too.

Vet, we just finished one of ours up. Vet says fleas cause them, fleas being infected by them. The med is by the weight of the cat. So, please take them to the vet for this.

just my thoughts
