To avoid worms reaching maturity and affecting your pet's health, and to reduce public health risks, you should worm your pet regularly. Kittens should be dewormed every 2 weeks from 2 weeks of age until 12 weeks, thereafter every month until 6 months of age. From 6 months on all cats should be dewormed every 3 months and in the event of a heavy round worm infestation, a repeat dose should be given after 14 days.
Do not use on kittens under 8 weeks of age or weighing less than 0.5 kg.
Do not administer orally.
Prevent the treated cat and/or other cats in the household from licking the site of application while it is wet. Salivation and vomiting may occur as a result for licking the wet area.

Don’t forget the flea control! Fleas are often infected with the larvae of the Tapeworm, which can be transferred to your cat by swallowing the flea while grooming. In order to control worms, you also need to control fleas. A spot-on treatment is the easiest way to protect your cat – but you may also need one that kills flea larvae in your pet's surroundings, to effectively break the flea lifecycle.
If you don’t control a flea problem at the same time as worming, your cat is almost certain to be re-infected
