Drontal

Filed under: Uncategorized — robertprice @ 8:29 am

Suitable for both dogs and cats, Drontal offers effective control of all common intestinal worms in just one dose.

How to use Drontal

It is possible for puppies to be born with worm larvae already present, having been exposed to them while still in the womb. Therefore you should start a worming programme at 2 weeks of age, and to continue worming once a week until 12 weeks old. Once the puppy reaches 12 weeks of age, it should then be treated at 3 monthly intervals.

Kittens are not born with worm larvae already present, so worming does not need to start until 6 weeks old, with further treatments every 3 weeks, until 4 months old. After 4 months, worming at 3 monthly intervals should be adopted.

Signs that your pet may have worms

In the early stages of infection, it’s very difficult to tell if your pet has worms. In dogs, mature tapeworms start shedding egg-filled segments, which irritate the dog’s bottom. This causes the classic symptom of tapeworm infection, ‘scooting’, or dragging the bottom along the ground.

Apart from this, there are few definite signs, but these may include vomiting, diarrhea, a dull, lifeless coat, a loss of appetite, lack of energy, and, especially in puppies and kittens, a pot bellied appearance.

Side effects

While using Drontal pets may experience some temporary increased salivation, vomiting and diarrhea. If signs continue or become more severe within a few days of use, consult a veterinarian immediately.
