I use the Homeopet WRM Clear every 3 months and it keeps my lab who loves to run in the woods worm free.

Your package instructions will provide you information on the total number of tablets to use. I use WormX, which Petco sells, and treat multiple size dogs. In the case of that product, my 75# rescues get 2 tablets, my 45# rescue gets 1, and my 150# plus rescues get 3 or 4 tablets, depending on their total weight. That's why I buy the multiple tablet packs on sale.
Insofar as treating multiple times, traditional vets recommend treating 3 times over a 6-9 week period, to be sure you've also killed any newly hatched tapeworms. There are holistic vets that feel this is too much. If this is the first time you are treating your pet, and/or if you walk / live in a high flea-infested environment (which is where the eggs come from), then I would recommend treating twice, with a 3-week rest between treatments. You will then notice if there are still tapeworm pieces in the feces, and can re-treat as needed after that.
