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, 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 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.

What is the most important information I should know about Drontal for Cats?

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?

Give Drontal for Cats exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. 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.

What are the possible side effects of Drontal for Cats?

Side effects of Drontal for Cats 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.

Customer Reviews
Drontal for Cats is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work I bought this about a month ago, at first I thought it actually worked . I am finding small worms near his butt again. Very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Good I purchased this product because I thought Bayer was a name I could trust. I have 2 Cats, and neither would go anywhere near it when I put it in wet food for them. If you plan on giving with food, proceed at your own risk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I gave drontal to my cat about a week ago and I am so happy with the results. She had no side effects and I have not seen a worm since. Another great plus is that you don’t need a prescription for this medicine so you don’t have the extra expenses having to take her to the vet.

Q&A

Is redosage necessary? How often?

Asked by: Katy
Thank you for your inquiry. Deworming is recommended every 3 months for adult cats. For kittens, deworm every two weeks until 3 months of age then monthly until 6 months of age. For adopted kittens, deworm immediately with at least 2 or more treatments at 2 week intervals.

My cat is 4-5 lbs which indicates 1 tablet. Is that all i need? Is it a one time thing unless i dont see results?

Asked by: RRogers16
Drontal is a one time worm treatment. It is advised that an adult cat should be treated for worms at least four times a year. There may be specific instances however where more frequent worming treatment is desirable. These would include: worming of kittens; cats that hunt and eat mice; cats experiencing repeated flea problems. You should wait 21-26 days before retreating.
