Directions for Use
Please weigh your dogs before treatment to avoid overdosing. Write down the date, the dog's name and weight on the Worm Control Chart on the sleeve of the package, to keep an accurate record of treatment.
Your dogs are treated by weight with the appropriate sized tablet or combination of tablets. Aristopet Allwormer is given as a single dose by mouth. Fasting prior to dosing is not necessary. One 22 lbs tablet for puppies and dogs will treat a dog up to 22 lbs. Dogs over 22lbs and other weights are given a combination of the tablets. Treat pregnant bitches at the time of mating, before whelping and every 3 months.
For Hydatid Tapeworm; Dogs should not be fed or allowed to feed on offal from any species. Dogs in hydatid areas should be treated every 6 weeks. For other tapeworms, treat every 3 months.

For whipworms; treat 6 to 8 weeks after 3 months of age.
To ensure effective worm control, treat all dogs in the household at the same time. Animals infested with worms are a continual source of reinfestation to other dogs. Signs of worm infestation in dogs are lack of energy, loss of weight, vomiting and diarrhoea. An important part of the worming program is flea control. Dogs are frequently infested by tapeworm (Dipylidium caninum) which uses the flea as a carrier. View some options on flea meds.
Do not use in puppies under 2 weeks of age and less than 3.3lbs. This medication should not be used in animals allergic to it.
