PHOENIX — March 6, 2008 — The D-Worm™ line of pet dewormers adds Tasty Paste® Dog and Puppy Wormer, a trusted brand for more than 25 years, creating the widest selection of pet deworming products available over-the-counter.

“All D-Worm™ products are made with veterinary-quality formulas that have been trusted by pet owners for more than 10 years,” said Kathleen George, senior brand manager, Central Life Sciences Companion Animal Health Brands. “The new package design enables consumers to locate D-Worm™ products easily on the shelf and choose the liquid, tablet or chewable tablet formula that’s right for their dog or cat.”

Tasty Paste® Dog and Puppy Wormer contains piperazine adipate to control roundworms. The beef flavor makes it easy to administer, whether fed directly or added to food. Other products in the D-Worm™ line include:

* D-Worm™ (piperazine) Liquid for Kittens and Cats, Puppies and Dogs controls roundworms. This easy-to-use liquid provides a high margin of safety for kittens and puppies and may be mixed with food.
* D-Worm™ (pyrantel pamoate) Liquid Wormer for Puppies and Dogs is proven effective in removing large roundworms and hookworms. D-Worm™ Liquid is highly palatable, easy to administer and provides a wide margin of therapeutic safety in dogs. It is not necessary to withhold food prior to treatment and regular use is shown to prevent roundworm reinfestation. Choose D-Worm™ 60 Liquid for small dogs and D-Worm™ 120 Liquid for large dogs; in each case proper dosage is based on the dog’s weight.
* D-Worm™ (pyrantel pamoate) Tablets for Puppies and Dogs are available in push tablets or chewable tablets. These palatable and easy to administer tablets are proven effective in removing large roundworms and hookworms. It is not necessary to withhold food when dispensing D-Worm™ and regular use prevents roundworm reinfestation. D-Worm™ push tablets are available in 2-tablet and 100-tablet bottles for small dogs and 2-tablet and 50-tablet bottles for large dogs. D-Worm™ chewable tablets are available in 2-tablet and 30-tablet bottles for small dogs and large dogs.
* D-Worm™ (praziquantel) Tablets for Dogs and Puppies are available in 5-tablet and 10-tablet bottles. Praziquantel is commonly prescribed by veterinarians for tapeworm control — now available without a prescription. Tapeworm infection is one of the most common internal parasite problems actually observed by dog owners. Dogs become infected with tapeworms after eating fleas or small mammals (rabbits, hares) which are infected with tapeworm larvae. D-Worm™ with praziquantel kills both common species of tapeworms (flea transmitted and rabbit transmitted) and is approved for adult dogs and puppies 4 weeks of age and older.

“To ensure proper product dosage, customers are encouraged to read package directions carefully before administering D-Worm™ products to their pets,” added George.
