Tapeworms in Dogs
Treatment is given on an outpatient basis for adult tapeworms, either by injection or by oral medication. Medications are effective at removing the tapeworms from the dog's body.
Living and Management
It is important to administer all of the prescribed medication to ensure that the tapeworms are removed from the dog's body.
