What are Droncit Tablets for Dogs and Cats?

Tapeworm Tablets for Dogs / Cats

Droncit Tablets for Dogs and Cats are an effective worming treatment used in dogs and cats. It works to eliminate both adult and immature forms of tapeworm. There are a number of things that can cause tapeworm in dogs and cats such as flea infestations, eating raw meat from infected animals, or from contact with infected faeces on the ground.

To quickly and effectively treat tapeworms, Droncit Tablets for Dogs and Cats are easy to use and are recommended at least every 3 months, approximately 4 times a year. However, if your dog lives in a rural area or you have a number of pets then you may consider more frequent treatment.

While treating your pet for tapeworm, it’s also useful to address the cause otherwise you risk reinfestation. If your pet has fleas, there are a number of effective flea treatments available that kill not only the adult fleas, but also the eggs and larvae in your home, which ends the flea life cycle.

You should also cook meat thoroughly to ensure any tapeworms that are present are killed, and clean up after your pet at all times to prevent further spread on infestation.

How do Droncit Tablets for Dogs and Cats work?

The active ingredient in Droncit Tablets for Dogs and Cats is praziquantel, which works to kill adult tapeworms. When the substance is metabolised by the liver, it works its way to the tapeworms and stops them from feeding off the food being digested by your pet. 

Once the tapeworms have been stopped from feeding, they then starve and die. Tapeworms that have been killed are then passed through your pet’s stool, although they may have been destroyed by the digestive system and therefore you might not notice them.

The treatment gets to work quickly and begins killing tapeworms around 2-6 hours after administering the medicine.

How do I use Droncit Tablets for Dogs and Cats?

When you receive the medication, it’s important to read and understand the dosage instructions. The strength and dose of the medicine will depend on the size of your pet.

The tablets should be taken orally and a single dose is all that’s required. The dose for dogs is 1 tablet per 10kg of body weight so it’s recommended to weigh your dog accurately to ensure the correct dosage is given. For adult cats, half a tablet is recommended.
