My lab has tapeworms and we went to the local feed store and bought some Happy Jack Tapeworm Tablets. Has anyone ever used them? Did you have any problems with it? We tried giving them to him tonight and he threw up after only about 25 minutes. It says to make sure they haven't eaten in 12 hours and he didn't have any food, but he had eaten some pine straw. I am worried about giving it to him again. Any replies would be greatly appreciated.

Are you aware that tapeworms are easily transmitted to humans?

Given that situation....how about taking the dog to your vet and get some real tapeworm meds, so that you and your family, and/or friends do not run the risk of also getting them.
