Drontal For Cats
DRONTAL® ALLWORMER FOR CATS 4KG is for the control of all gastrointestinal worms including tapeworms in cats:
Roundworms Toxocara cati, Toxascaris leonina
Hookworms Ancylostoma braziliense*, Uncinaria stenocephala
Tapeworms Dipylidium caninum (common flea tapeworm) Taenia taeniaeformis.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE - DRONTAL IS GIVEN AS A SINGLE DOSE BY MOUTH. It is essential to weigh cats before treatment. There is no need to interfere with normal feeding.
DOSAGE - Worms, if present, may not appear in the droppings after treatment, or may not appear for up to 48 hours after treatment. DRONTAL is given as a single dose by mouth. The tablet is best administered as whole portions rather than crushed in feed since praziquantel gives it a bitter taste. DRONTAL may be given on an empty stomach or at feeding times.
DOSING TIPS - Cats are dosed according to weight so weigh your cat before each treatment.
RECOMMENDED TREATMENTS - Worms often reinfest cats so it is necessary to treat the cat and reduce environmental contamination by daily disposal of droppings where possible. Also control intermediate hosts, eg. fleas, rats and mice. This table summarises treatment recommendations:
