Treating 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.




Keeping the dog free of flea infestation is the best protection. The environment must be treated along with the dog to prevent recurring infestations. Keeping the dog away from dead animals and garbage can also be employed to prevent ingestion of tapeworms.
