Drontal Suspension is recommended for the control of gastrointestinal worms in puppies and small dogs including:
Roundworm - Toxocara canis, Toxascaris leonina
Hookworm - Ancylostoma caninum, Ancylostoma braziliense (This hookworm is rare outside the coastal areas of north Queensland, Northern Territory and northern Western Australia), Uncinaria stenocephala.
Whipworm - Trichuris vulpis.
Drontal Suspension contains two distinctly different active ingredients. The febantel/pyrantel combination is active against hookworms and roundworms. Febantel alone is highly effective against whipworm. Hookworms and roundworms may infect puppies while still in the mother’s womb (roundworm) or as soon as they suckle milk (hookworm and roundworm). Therefore effective control of these parasites is essential.
This product does not control tapeworms or heartworm.
1ml should be administered for every 1kg of body weight.
For the effective control of intestinal worms in puppies, Drontal Liquid Worming Treatment should be administered every 2 weeks until 12 weeks of age then monthly until they are 6 months old. Adult dogs require treatment every 3 months.
