A pale brown to brown oval shaped divisible tablet scored on both sides for oral administration to dogs.
For the control of the following roundworms and tapeworms in dogs:
Ascarids : Toxocara canis, Toxascaris leonina (adult and late immature forms)
Hookworms : Uncinaria stenocephala, Ancylostoma caninum (adults)
Whipworms : Trichuris vulpis (adults)
Tapeworms : Echinococcus spp. Taenia spp. and Dipylidium caninum (adult and immature forms)
In this fixed combination product pyrantel and febantel act synergistically against all relevant nematodes (ascarids, hookworms and whipworms) in dogs. In particular, the activity spectrum covers Toxocara canis, Toxascaris leonina, Uncinaria stenocephala, Ancylostoma caninum and Trichuris vulpis. Pyrantel acts as a cholinergic agonist. Its mode of action is to induce spastic paralysis and thereby allow removal from the gastro-intestinal (GI) system by peristalsis. The parasite dies upon exhaustion of its energy reserves, which occurs 2-3 days later.
Do not use simultaneously with piperazine compounds. Consult a veterinary surgeon before treating pregnant animals for roundworms. The tablets may be used during lactation. Do not exceed the stated dosage when treating pregnant bitches. Not for use in dogs weighing less than 3 kg.
Fleas serve as intermediate hosts for one common type of tapeworm - Dipylidium caninum. Tapeworm infestation is certain to re-occur unless control of intermediate hosts such as fleas, mice etc. is undertaken.
In the interests of good hygiene, persons administering the tablets directly to a cat, or by adding them to the cat’s food, should wash their hands afterwards.
The recommended dose rates are: 15 mg/kg bodyweight febantel,
14.4 mg/kg pyrantel and 5 mg/kg praziquantel. This is equivalent to 1 tablet per 35 kg bodyweight as follows:
Dosages are as follows:
|Body weight (kg)||Tablet quantity|
|17.5 - 35||1|
|35 - 52.5||1½|
|52.5 - 70||2|
Drontal Plus Flavour Tablets should be used to achieve accurate dosing in dogs weighing less than 17.5 kg. The dose is equivalent to 1 tablet per 10 kg.
The tablet(s) can be given directly to the dog or disguised in food. No starvation is needed before or after treatment.
For routine treatment a single dose is recommended.
For the control of Toxocara, nursing bitches should be dosed 2 weeks after giving birth and every 2 weeks until weaning.
For routine control adult dogs should be treated every 3 months. In the event of a heavy roundworm infestation, a repeat dose should be given after 14 days.
Do not store above 25°C.
Do not remove tablets from strip packaging until required for use.
Any part used tablets should be discarded.
Any unused veterinary medicinal products or waste materials derived from such veterinary medicinal products should be disposed of in accordance with local requirements.

Drontal worming tablet
by George and Lucy's mum
As I'm sure we have all tried to give our babies worming tablets hiding them in food or crushing them in water without success both my Yorkie and jack Russell are great at removing the tablet from the food so I tried drontal worming tablets small and bone shaped I just put the tablet in front of them and hey presto they both ate it wow drontal isn't the dearest but they work and are easy to swallow so George tells me haha so it's drontal for me and my babies
An Elven name for Orcs, this 'tasty' tablets is so bad that we can hardly get our bitch to swallow it even wrapped in cheese. Defo a point lost on delivery, then, but as I assume it does the job (once in) at a reasonable price, I'm inclined to go for 4 stars. Through great tribulation we inherit the kingdom:)
