Cestex (epsiprantel) is an oral medication used to treat tapeworm infections in dogs and cats.
Epsiprantel, the active ingredient of Cestex, is an anthelminthic (dewormer). It paralyzes the tapeworm which causes it to lose its grip on your pet's intestinal wall. The tapeworm is then digested with no sign of the parasite seen in the stool after treatment.

Do not give Cestex to kittens and puppies less than 7 weeks of age. Because humans can contract tapeworm from pets it is important to maintain good personal hygiene. It is also important to eliminate fleas on the pet and in the household and to not feed the pet rodents or uncooked meat or fish. To prevent reinfection, daily cleanup of stools is recommended.
