Re: Popantel Tapeworm Tablets This product is used for the treatment of tapeworm in dogs & cats. Specifically it is effective in the treatment of "zipperworm" which needs 4 x the usual dose of tapeworm tablets to treat it. The product worked well & we are happy with the results. We were also happy with the efficiency of vet-n-pet Direct in providing updates about the product re the order being received, when it was being sent etc. Also the description on the website of the product was informative & helpful. Also very pleased with the price of the product.
