Sometimes drugs aren't labeled for particular uses because it's more profit for the manufacturer to sell the same drug in a different formulation or package in a different market...the trick is to be careful to educate yourself, check with your vet, and to be very careful about calculating and calibrating dosages (when it's the same medication and you know how to use it.) Not fussing at you, just reassuring you that this particular wormer and the diluted dosage I referred to are used by several vets I know. I also do think this situation is a little different from the indiscriminate or careless wholesale use of antibiotics....plus I don't know of any relevant legislation or controlling authorities who have a say in how we worm our dogs or our personal chickens.
