Cestex is an anthelminthic (dewormer) used to treat tapeworm infections in dogs and cats. Cestex is sold per tablet and requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Cats (7+ weeks of age) Dogs (7+ weeks of age)

Benefits:

  • Successfully removes tapeworms in cats and dogs
  • Side effects are rare, and there are no known drug interactions

How it works

Cestex is an anthelminthic (dewormer). It paralyzes the tapeworm which causes it to lose its grip on your pet's intestinal wall. The tapeworm is then digested with no sign of the parasite seen in the stool after treatment.

Storage:

Store capsules at room temperature away from moisture or heat.

  • Cestex is an oral dewormer (anthelmintic) medication available by prescription used to treat tapeworm infections in dogs and cats.
  • Because humans can contract tapeworm from pets it is important to clean up after your pet and to wash your hands thoroughly. It is also important to eliminate fleas on the pet and in the household and to not feed your pet rodents or uncooked meat or fish.
