Cestex Tablets: Tapeworm Removal Medication for Pets 

What are Cestex tablets used for: Cestex tablets are used to treat tapeworm infections in dogs and cats older than 7 weeks of age. Cestex tablets will not be effective against any worms besides tapeworms, thus a definitive diagnosis and prescription from a veterinarian is required. Cestex causes the tapeworms to detach from the host.


What else should you know about Cestex: Very little of Cestex is absorbed from the stomach and intestinal tract, so the side effects are limited. The most common side effects are vomiting and diarrhea. Worm fragments may still be seen in the stool after treating with Cestex. Cestex can be given with or without food, but it is not recommended to have your pet fast before administering it. A single dose is usually all that is required to fully treat the tapeworm infection, but it is important to prevent reinfestation in your pet. Consult your pet's veterinarian about how to prevent your pet from getting another tapeworm infection.

You can find a Client Information Sheet which provides a summary of information about Cestex by following the link below:

      Linda,

      Yes, Cestex does require a prescription from the veterinarian. We can accept the prescription in a couple of different ways. Once an order has been placed, we can send a faxed prescription request to the veterinarian for approval, or the veterinarian may choose to issue you a written prescription, which you can then mail to us. Once we have the prescription here, we would process and ship out your order.

      Thank you,

    Asked on 4/7/2014 by Panhandler1 from Navarre, FL, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Panhandler1,

      Cestex (espiprantel) dosed per weight and typically taken as a single-dose treatment. However, if the pet is exposed to the infected intermediate host then retreatment may be required. This being said, either dosage regimen could be correct depending on the situation. Contact your pet's veterinarian for follow-up on dosage.

      Thank you,

    I am looking for med for all around wormer. They are mainly a short quarter inch worm. My cats are also outdoor & indoor cats
    Asked on 12/20/2013 by Thomas from Auburn, NY

    1 answer

    • A:

      Thomas,

      We cannot make any recommendations for medications. Your cats' veterinarian would be your best resource to diagnose the type of worm and to recommend the appropriate course of treatment for their particular situation.

      Thank you,
