If there is a risk of re-infestation, the advice of a veterinarian should be sought regarding the need for and the frequency of repeat administration.
Do not use simultaneously with piperazine compounds as the anthelmintic effects of pyrantel and piperazine may be antagonized.
Do not use in animals with a known sensitivity to the active ingredients or to any of the excipients.
Fleas serve as intermediate hosts for one common type of tapeworm Dipylidium caninum. Tapeworm infestation is certain to reoccur unless control of intermediate hosts such as fleas, mice, etc. is undertaken.
Tapeworm infestation is unlikely in pups less than 6 weeks of age.
Parasite resistance to any particular class of anthelmintic may develop following frequent, repeated use of an anthelmintic of that class.
Concurrent use with other cholinergic compounds can lead to toxicity.

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Cazitel Plus for Dogs, including answers from our team.
I was recently prescribed this wormer by my vets on the understanding it will kill lungworm. Can you confirm this is correct?
As far as I am aware, Cazitel is not licensed for treatment of lungworm in dogs and personally I would not expect it to be effective. There are several types of lungworm in dogs in fact, but there are not many effective treatments for the type of lungworm which is currently causing concern (Angiostrongylus vasorum). I would suggest you ask your vet to check the information - where has your vet got this information from? Is it in writing from a trustworthy source?
My Lancashire Heeler bitch is 50 days pregnant. Is it safe to worm her with Cazitel Plus? She normally has this.
Cazitel can be used during pregnancy. It is usually advised to avoid the first 3 weeks of pregnancy, but at 50 days it would be safe to worm her. I would suggest worming her again each time you worm the puppies. This can be done from about 3 weeks of age and repeated every 2-4 weeks, depending on the level of worm infestation (which varies immensely). You can break up Cazitel tablets to use for puppies, or use a liquid wormer for them instead.
Please could you advise me whether these worming tablets are ok for a Jack Russell who suffers from pancreatitis?
Cazitel should be fine to give to your dog. Pancreatitis is a poorly understood condition which can recur periodically, but these worm tablets would not be expected to cause any trouble.
