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.

Drontal is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick results!! Split the pill in half and slid them down his throat. Had no problems at all. Very effective. He's a happy healthy cat now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works good but The pill is very big compared to my little cats mouth. I crushed it up and put it in wet food and it must taste awful cause she didn't eat it. I had to get the pill parts and put it in her mouth myself. But it really does work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This product seems to have worked very well. No signs of worms since taking the tablet. We had a hard time getting him to take the pill, but what cat loves medicine.....great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice product My outdoor car had a flea issue and occasional tape worms spotted on her rear end. I read about tape worms and saw this product is legit and only need to be given twice a year. Control the flea problem and the tape worms will also be controlled. No side effects from my cat. Works great. I will buy more drontal in the future. I recently gave it to my indoor cat and same excellent results

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works fast! My little guy had some nasty tapeworms. I bought drontal about a month ago, since giving him the dose i have not seen anymore. Hes back up playing and happy, back to his normal self. I highly recommend drontal for tapeworms. It not only does the job but does the job very quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make sure to give correct full dose Kitty boy and kitty baby ended up with tapeworms after a nasty flea infestation. After getting the fleas taken care of it was time to deworm. I guessed their weights and bought what I thought was enough to take care of the worms. I must have under dosed my adult cat because he needs to be retreated. However my kitten only needed a single dose and was back to normal in no time. Don't be scared to force feed your cat the pill. I read hundreds of reviews for this product on various sites and so many people gave low rating simply because their cat wouldn't eat the pill. That's not a fair review. I am incredibly thankful that I can purchase this item online because it's cheaper than what the vet charges and it's just as effective. My cats strongly disliked me for a few minutes but they got over it.

The pill desolved a little in my hand and I'm worried she did not get the full dose. How lo g should I wait to give her another I already planned on giving her another since the eggs are not killed

Asked by: Forpearly
The pill dissolving on your hand a little is fine. Give your pet the next dose at the recommended time. Consult with your veterinarian if you are not sure.

How many times do I have to treat my cat, just once or do I have to give it several doses for several days?

Asked by: Buck
There is a high success rate provided all cats are given the proper dosages, their litter boxes are cleaned daily and their bedding and home has been cleaned. Re-dose them after 3 weeks to prevent the possibility of a reinfection.
