Drontal Cat Dewormer - 1 tablet per order
For the treatment of roundworms and tapeworms in cats.
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.
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/
Dosage: 1 tablet per 4 kg bodyweight.
Can be given with or without food
2Kg and under cat, give ½ tablet
2.1kg – 4kg cat, give 1 tablet
4.1kg – 6kg cat, give 1 ½ tablets
6.1kg – 8kg cat, give 2 tablets
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 summarises treatment recommendations:
KITTENS Treat at 4, 6, 8, 12 weeks; then 3 monthly
ADULTS Treat every 3 months
PREGNANT/LACTATING QUEENS Treat prior to mating, 10 days before kittening and 2 and 4 weeks after kittening. Then every 3 months.
These recommendations are of a general nature. In specific instances where infestation is particularly heavy, or many cats are housed together, a veterinary surgeon should be consulted. Flea tapeworms can reinfect cats and begin producing segments 2-3 weeks after treatment. If segments reappear before the next DRONTAL treatment is due, either retreat with DRONTAL ALLWORMER FOR CATS or use DRONCIT® as an intermediate tapeworm only treatment.
Store below 30ºC (room temperature). Protect from moisture.
