My cats are spoiled and detected it
My cats typically eat Fancy Feast every night. After I got Larva Cutaneous Migrans, basically hookworms that you cants see but feel biting you, it was necessary to treat all the cats to keep from getting reinfected. I crushed the tablets and put the recommended amounts into each dinner. The cats started eating but after a few seconds they stopped and looked around. I could tell they didn’t like it. They tried changing bowls and took a few licks of other bowls. No one cat got a full dose. I would recommend small amounts of this medicine into frequent meals and snacks. My cats were too smart for this. Alternatively, you could spend hundreds of dollars to have the vet look at your cat and maybe agree to Revolution. Monthly treatment would be optimal.

Love the convenience.
I'm an experienced cat mom with a busy schedule, I found once again one of my cats had tape worms even though I had started flea treatments for all my cats a month before (we have lots of visiting rescues) I called and spoke with my Vet and due to scheduling she suggested I purchase an over-the-counter product. I immediately remembered 1-800-pet-meds and went online to research. My cats have always been given Drontal by my Vet so I went by my cats weight and ordered the appropriate amount. Received it when they said I would and took care of my fur baby with no issues. This will always be my go-to when I'm unable to get to my Vet in a timely manner. Thank you!

What is Drontal for Cats?

Drontal is a broad-spectrum dewormer for 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 does Drontal for Cats work?

Drontal's active ingredients are praziquantel and pyrantel pamoate. 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 should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Drontal for Cats?

Tell your veterinarian if your cat 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.

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 Drontal for Cats be given?

Drontal for Cats 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 should I avoid while giving Drontal to my cat?

Because humans can contract tapeworm from animals, it is important to maintain good personal hygiene. It is also important to eliminate fleas on your 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.
