Thanks for using, I'm Dr. Dan and I'll try to help you.

Ivomec and ivermectin products do not kill tapeworms. You need to use the drug praziquantel. You can get this from your vet or occasionally from pet stores. The dosage will be on the box.

what dosage do i need to give for heart worm and other parasites and how often do i need to give to protect them 65lb black lab 20lb dashhound
Expert:  Dr. Dan replied 6 years ago.
You need to give tapeworm meds only as needed when you see symptoms in their stool or on their rear ends. For heart worm and intestinal parasites monthly administration is recommended. It is illegal for us to give dosage information over the internet with out a personal physical exam. Ivomec for heartworm is not recommended because there are tested and proven effective medications already on the market.
