Ruthie, The recommended deworming schedule will depend on climate, activity of your dog, as well as the age of your pet. The manufacturer recommends that weaned pups (6 to 8 weeks of age) should be dewormed at 6, 8, 10, and 12 weeks of age and dogs over 6 months of age should be dewormed at least twice each year. This weight-based dose is given 3 days in a row for each scheduled time. Contact your veterinarian to determine whether or not this medication is appropriate for your pet.
