Thank you for your question. My name is***** I have been a small animal veterinarian for 14 years and I'd like to help.I suspect that label has more to do with regulations of over the counter medications and less to do with safety. We use it in 8 week old kittens on a regular basis. And that dose should be fine. You should't have any problems.

Thank you for your answer. I managed to call our vet as well and they said he should be fine but they told me not to buy any dewormer from pet stores. I used beapher do you know if it safe to use it or not? Thank you again.

I would stick with prescription dewormers in the future too, but the Beapher piperazine should be safe.
