Wholeheartedly agree with another vet tech review
Another vet assistant wrote a recommendation that TWO doses be given and I agree 100%. Tapeworm meds (as well as other worm meds) always get 2 doses because meds don't kill eggs. A 2nd dose is needed to kill the hatched eggs approx 2 weeks later. Btw most cats despise the smell/taste of praziquantel, but there's nothing else better for tapeworms. Dogs tolerate the taste better.

Worked so quickly.
I used Droncit I got from my vet. It looked EXACTLY like this pill. It worked like magic. Almost overnight my cat Smitten stopped eating everything in sight. Worms stopped coming out of her. And her belly went down to normal size. She had tapeworms. I put it on the tip on my finger, put in the side of mouth, down her throat and did not force her mouth closed. That causes a fearful reaction. I had her wet food ready, which she immediately went to eat, and that helped the pill go the rest of the way down her throat.

Hard to Give to Cats
We wasted money on this product because it was so difficult to get all our cats to swallow one pill. I crushed the pills and attempted to mix with water and they would spit out the liquid. I cut the pill and placed small pieces in pill pocket and they would spit out the pill pockets. I ground the pills and placed them into gelatin capsules and they would spit those out. I ordered enough for four cats and only one cat completely swallowed a whole pill. The pill does work if your cat will swallow all of it. After this disaster, I discovered another product that does the same thing that I can apply on the skin, like flea treatment.

Excellent Product
Droncit is fast-acting and totally effective at eliminating tapeworms. I gave my cat Tanza 1/2 tablet- (crushed into a fine powder and mixed with her favorite "gravy" treat), and after 3 days, the tapeworms had been expelled, and all her symptoms are gone.-- Dosage instructions were to give her the remaining 1/2 pill in 10 days if the problem persisted--- but, as the first dose succeeded, I can save it for another time if necessary.

After one pill (not hard to administer - put it in the back of the mouth, hold jaws shut for a minute and it's gone), my pure-black cat has not emitted a single segment. Is about 33% of the cost of a similar pill prescribed.

It is said that this can be crushed and mixed with food. I crushed it and mixed with my 3 cat's wet food. One cat ate it and the other 2 wouldn't touch it.

What is Droncit?

Droncit (praziquantel) is used to treat tapeworms in dogs and cats. Droncit requires a prescription, and is sold per tablet.

For:

Cats (over 6 weeks of age), Dogs (over 4 weeks of age)

Benefits:

  • Single-dose formula makes for easy oral administration
  • Tablets can be crumbled and mixed with food

How it Works:

Praziquantel is a cestocide. Praziquantel works by damaging the parasite's skin internally so the parasite disintegrates and is removed by the pet's immune system.

Cautions:

Side effects, while rare, may include vomiting, loss of appetite, drowsiness, or diarrhea in dogs and increased salivation in cats. Since humans can contract tapeworm from animals, it's important to maintain good personal hygiene. It's also important to eliminate fleas on your pet.
