What is Drontal?

Drontal is a broad-spectrum dewormer used in cats and kittens to treat tapeworms, hookworms, and roundworms. Drontal requires a prescription, and 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.


More Information:
Brand Name
Drontal (Bayer)
Generic Name
Praziquantel and pyrantel pamoate (pra-zee-kwaní-tell)

What is the most important information I should know about Drontal: Drontal is a prescription medication 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.

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.

How should this medication be given: Give Drontal exactly as directed by the 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 happens if I overdose the pet: Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. While rare, symptoms of overdose may include increased salivation, vomiting and diarrhea in cats.

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.

Where can I get more information: Your pharmacist has additional information about Drontal Feline written for health professionals that you may read.

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! 10/01/2013
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. 07/26/2013
excellent all around the product Drontal worked wonderfully. every time i've used it the issue was cleared up . i've had the best customer service and prompt help with 1800 petmeds. they are my go to company for all my pet needs and i definitely recommend them to everyone who has animals. 06/28/2013
the petmed people are great! The Drontal product is good and works, vinny is feeling much better. This review is more about the pharmacy than the drug. I needed this med within a certain period and due to mail error did not receive it. When I called Petmeds they resent, overnight, a new delivery at their expense AND the phamacist contacted me to make sure I got what i needed and was able to give the proper dosage. Thank you Petmeds. 06/12/2013
works everytime Have used Drontal for years and it is very effective. Our cats were always outdoors and I had to worm 2x a year and Drontal was the easiest way to rid them quickly. They are indoors now, 06/09/2013

Identifying Drontal

I thought my cat swallowed the Drontal on Fri. but today Sunday I found a table very much like the Drontal which I thought she got.
How can I identify the tablet...
On one side it has Mylan 216 the other side it has the number 40, the tablet is scored and is a light cream color...
before I give the tab to my cat, i need to know if it is correct....

Answer: 
The drontal for cats should be yellow with the markings D8 on it, it is not manufactured by Mylan so I definitely would not give her the other tablet you found.

A 20 pound dog would need two tablets as a single dose for a proper deworming. Please inform your veterinarian that your Boston is now infected.

Ive used many deworming medicines in the past on my cats and the results are very similar. Once given the medicine, the cats still pass a few worms and it 'seems' to clear up. But what happens to all the worms that are still in the cat? Shouldnt they come out of the body? I am very skeptic of any deworming medication because it doesnt make sense for the worms to stay in the body. And we are not millionaires so regular visits to the vet for stool samples are out of the question.

Answer: 
My kitten just got Drontal at thevet an the vet said the medicine destroys the protective layer of the worms allowing the worms to just be digested, which is why you just stop seeing them. Hope this helps.

I adopted a kitten at 3 1/2 months who had a lot of tape worms and roundworms. My vet gave her 1 drontal tablet and said to give her another tablet in three weeks. then bring in a stool sample 2 weeks after the second dose. She is 4 1/2 lbs, should i bring in a stool sample before giving her the second dose?

Answer: 
No, I'd wait until after you give her the second dose. The reason for the second dose is to kill any eggs that may have hatched. Good luck!
