Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised Not sure what these older reviews were thinking. Your dog has intestinal parasites. Of course its gross and this may cause some digestive issues getting rid of parasites. This product works well. Once to start the process, once again in about three weeks. Drop off a stool sample after 4 weeks for a check. Your dog will be worm free. Make sure to clean up their waste immediately, and don't let them eat others waste... Otherwise they may become reinfected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product I got this from our vet after we saw little friends in our 2and a half month old doberman waste. We noticed after only 2 day a we did not notice any more "little friends" and we couldn't be happier.since the dog sleeps in our bed and stays inside around small children most of the time. We did notice 1 side effect from the medicine.our dog was extremely hiper.way more than normal,and she seemed to not get comfortable .she was very figgity.I gave her a children's chewable Tylenol and she was fine. But that only lasted the day she for the meds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product We have been using this as a worm preventative on our dogs for 10 years. Every six months. None of our dogs have had a worm issue in those 10 years. Many of our neighbors dogs have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works When I got my first puppy she had tapeworms wiggling in her feces. Vet prescribed Drontal Plus and the worms cleared immediately! Now I have a second puppy 1 year later and he had tapeworms AND roundworms and once again we were prescribed Drontal Plus. It's a great product but make sure to clean your animals living area with bleach to kill eggs and larvae so they don't get reinfected after the medication wears off and to do a followup to get any newly hatched worms.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not sure I have a 4 1/2 mo Norwich terrier puppy. I used this medication as a precaution since he trys to eat everything in the yard (including rabbit pellets/feces). This medication made him extremely hyper the day he took it, and he didn't want to go to sleep that night. The following day he slept allll day. He was nauseous, but didn't vomit.He had soft stools the next day, but I didn't see any worms. .I was given this medication by our vet. I think our puppy may be sensitive to this medication.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product!!! We were skeptical to use this product, basing our views off of the reviews from this page... But we went ahead & bought the product anyway.. We just got 2 beagle puppies & they had worms so bad. They were all over their crate in the mornings & leaking out of their behind. It was disgusting. We tried this product & within 2 hours, most of the worms had exited our puppies bodies (in their stools). It was disgusting. It's been 24 hours & there are no more worms in their stools & we woke up to no worms in the crate, not one! They have had NO side effects. They had loose stool, but not diarrhea. This product is AWESOME & very inexpensive!!!

What is Drontal Plus?

Drontal Plus is a broad-spectrum dewormer used in dogs to treat tapeworms, roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms. Drontal Plus is sold per tablet and requires a prescription.

For:

Dogs & Puppies (3+ weeks of age, weighing 2+ lbs)

Benefits:

  • Proven to eliminate the most common intestinal parasites (tapeworms, roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms)
  • Chewable tablets are easy to give
  • Given as a single dose
  • Sold per tablet

How does Drontal Plus work?

Drontal Plus' 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 your pet's immune system. Pyrantel pamoate is active against hookworms and ascarids and acts as a depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent, causing sudden contraction, followed by paralysis. This results in the hookworm losing its grip in the intestinal wall and is removed from your pet's system by the natural process. Febantel is active against nematode parasites, including whipworms.

Cautions:

Side effects of Drontal Plus are rare but may include vomiting, loss of appetite, or diarrhea. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any unusual or bothersome side effects that may occur.
