It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

Pyrantel pamoate, one of Virbantel's active ingredients, interferes with nerve transmissions in hookworms and roundworms. This causes paralysis or death, allowing for quick excretion of the parasites. The other active ingredient, praziquantel, is thought to work by inhibiting the tapeworm's ability to adhere inside your pet, permitting rapid excretion.
