...that your pets cannot pass tapeworms to each other? The tapeworm life cycle requires something called an "intermediate host". This can either be a flea, or a small "critter" such as a rabbit, chipmunk, etc. Your pet must ingest one of these intermediate hosts in order to develop tapeworms in their own body.
While our monthly heartworm preventives also prevent and control some types of intestinal worms, they do not prevent tapeworms. So, preventing tapeworms requires preventing fleas, or preventing your pet from hunting (that can be challenging!). Tapeworms do not typically cause illness in pets, and are easy to treat.

Chances are, your question will be answered there. If not, give us a call!
