Why is it that tapeworm medication is by prescription only? My cats go through this at least once a year and I have four of them. It is hard getting them all to the vet at once and since they are seen on a regular basis and are regular users of Advantage, I just see it as pointless. I spend a fortune everytime I go and the fact is that I know what tape worms are, since they get them every year. So, why is it that they wont put it over the counter?
PS: Is there a hassle free, low cost way to keep this from happening, ow to get treatment?
You would have to talk to the FDA for theat answer. Sorry, vetcare PS: if you can control your flea popultion you should be able to control tapeworm infection.
