What is Drontal?

Drontal is a broad-spectrum dewormer used in cats and kittens to treat tapeworms, hookworms, and roundworms. Drontal is sold per tablet.

For:

Cats (weighing more than 1.5 lbs and over 1 month old)

Benefits:
  • Proven to eradicate the most common intestinal parasites
  • An easy single-dose administration. Each tablet is scored for easy breakage.
  • Can be given directly by mouth or in a small amount of food
  • Side effects occur rarely
How it Works:

Drontal's active ingredients are praziquantel, pyrantel pamoate and febantel. Praziquantel works by damaging the parasite's skin internally, so the parasite disintegrates and is removed by the pet's immune system. Pyrantel pamoate is active against hookworms and ascarids and acts as a blocking agent, causing paralysis. This results in the hookworm losing its grip in the intestinal wall and is removed from the pet's system by natural process.

Cautions:

Side effects are rare, but may include loss of appetite, increased salivation, vomiting and diarrhea. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to your pet. Drontal tablets are not for use in kittens less than one month old or weighing less than 1.5 pounds.

Brand Name:

Drontal (Bayer)

Generic Name:

Praziquantel and pyrantel pamoate (pra-zee-kwan'-tell)

What is Drontal:

Drontal is a broad spectrum dewormer used in the treatment of tapeworms, hookworms and large roundworms in cats and kittens.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Drontal to my pet:

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has ever had an allergic reaction to the medication. Tapeworm is a zoonotic infection meaning humans can contract tapeworm from animals. Discuss the importance of maintaining good personal hygiene.

What is the most important information I should know about Drontal:

Drontal is FDA approved for use in cats and kittens. The usual dose of Drontal for cats and kittens at least 4 weeks old and 1.5-1.9 lbs is 1/4 tablet, 2-3 lbs is 1/2 tablet, 4-8 lbs is 1 tablet, 9-12 lbs is 1 1/2 tablets and 13-16 lbs is 2 tablets.

How should this medication be given:

Give Drontal exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Drontal is given as a single dose. Store Drontal at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep out of the reach of children and pets.

What happens if I miss giving a dose:

Drontal Feline tablets are given as a single dose.

What should I avoid while giving Drontal to my pet:

Because humans can contract tapeworm from animals, it is important to maintain good personal hygiene. It is also important to eliminate fleas on the pet and in the household and to not feed the pet rodents or uncooked meat or fish. To prevent reinfection, daily cleanup of stools is recommended.

What are the possible side effects of Drontal:

Side effects of Drontal are rare but may include loss of appetite, increased salivation, vomiting and diarrhea. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to the animal.

What other drugs will affect Drontal:

Do not give Drontal to your pet if already giving an alternate dewormer medication unless directed to by your veterinarian.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast acting and it workd! After 2 attempts using dewormer from the vet, i decided to buy drontal. I could only get my cat to eat a tiny bit shoved in a treat, but that tiny bit worked! The next day Im scoopi.g his litterbox and seeing long worms. Grossed me out but thank god its not in him anymore. Ill be following up with the rest of the pill...just glad this stuff works!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent worm medicine for cats! Our cat TJ played with a feral kitty and her five kittens and ended up with worms! He takes pills very well, and this medicine was so effective, that he was purring and feeling fine in no time. Best worm medicine I've found. Effective and fast!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worms bye bye BESTEST product for all my 7 cats.....no more worms and with only one dose....yes

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Absolutely don't count on giving it in food My cat stopped well short of ingesting the entire "small amount" of food the medicine was applied to. This resulted in waste of 1.5 pills which does not come at small cost (nearly $12). Therefore my suggestion to save money, the disappointment of discovering your cat really does have a discriminating palate, and replacing the medicine, would be to give it by force. Yikes! There I said it. Plan on it for your cat will not cooperate by just eating some. In any case, you've been cautioned and, by the way, best of luck! I will inform on the med's effectiveness following administration, an event not yet reckoned with and looked forward to with much apprehension. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! So far so good! Kookie had one dose, and everything looks good! I would definitely recommend this company and their products. They quickly called my vet for a prescription, and the product was shipped very quickly. Kookie and I thank 1-800-PetMeds!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drontal Works! I love this product. I have used it twice on my cat so far and it clears the worms within a few days. He is much healthier now that his worms are gone. I loved how petmeds included catnip in the package as a thoughtful addition to ensure the well being of my pet. My cat loved playing with it. The process to get the prescription from my veterinarian was also super easy and required absolutely no effort from me. I will definitely go through petmeds again in the future.
