What is Drontal Plus?
Drontal Plus is a prescription combination internal parasite medication (wormer). Drontal Plus contains the active ingredients praziquantel, pyrantel pamoate, and febantel.

Who is it for?
Drontal Plus is for dogs and puppies over four weeks of age and over 2 lbs in weight.

What are the benefits?

*
Combination prescription medication for the treatment of internal parasites
*
Effective against tapeworm, hookworms, roundworms, and whipworms
*
Can be used in puppies as young as three weeks of age who are over 2 lbs
Drontal Plus tablets remove cestodes (tapeworms), ascarids (roundworms), hookworms, and whipworms from dogs. Broad-spectrum wormer contains three active ingredients: an FDA-approved oral cestode de-wormer plus a de-wormer effective against ascarids and hookworms; and febantel, active against nematodes, including whipworms. These three ingredients utilize different modes of action to rid your dog or puppy of a wide variety of intestinal worms. Tablets are scored for convenient oral administration. Not for use in pregnant animals. Can be used in puppies at least three weeks old with weight exceeding two pounds.

How does Drontal Plus work?
This combination anthelmintic agent removes cestodes (tapeworms), ascarids (roundworms), hookworms, and whipworms from dogs. Drontal Plus tablets work by paralyzing the worms and by disrupting normal parasite biology.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
No

How is it given?
Drontal Plus is given by mouth. Tablets may be crumbled and mixed with a small amount of food. This should be eaten before the pet receives the remainder of the meal to ensure the entire amount of medication is ingested. Fasting is neither necessary nor recommended. Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian.

This medication should only be given to the pet for whom it was prescribed.

What results can I expect?
Drontal Plus will kill roundworms, hookworms, tapeworms and whipworms. These worms may either be too small or may be digested, so you may not see worms in the stool. This medication will kill adult worms, but not immature worms that may be migrating through the body. It will not prevent reinfection. For these reasons, periodic deworming is often recommended.

What form(s) does it come in?
Tablet.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian while considering Drontal Plus?
Talk to your veterinarian about what type of outcome is expected. Have your veterinarian explain the other treatment options that may be available to treat your pet's condition. Discuss the steps you need to take to prevent your pet from becoming reinfected.

Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or may be used for breeding.

Notify your veterinarian of any other medications or supplements your pet is taking. Also if your pet has had any reactions to previous medications.

What should I do if I miss a dose?
In most cases only one dose of Drontal Plus is needed, however if re-exposure is likely, your pet may be placed on a regular deworming schedule. If you miss a dose, give it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to the regular schedule. Do not give two doses at once.

What is the most important information I should know?
You should understand what steps you can take to prevent reinfection of your pet and to protect you and your family from becoming infected.

Who should not take it?
Not for use in animals who are hypersensitive (allergic) to it. Do not use Drontal Plus in pregnant animals since it contains febantel. Unless authorized by your veterinarian, do not use in puppies less than three weeks of age or dogs weighing less than two pounds.

What side effects may be seen when taking Drontal Plus?
Side effects are rare, but may include drooling, vomiting, and loss of appetite, diarrhea, or lethargy.

How is it stored?
Store in a tight, light-resistant, childproof container at room temperature Keep out of reach of children and pets.

What should I do if I know of or suspect there has been an overdose?
If you know or suspect your pet has had an overdose, contact your veterinarian immediately.

What should I avoid when giving my pet Drontal Plus?
Consult your veterinarian before using Drontal Plus with any other medications, including vitamins and supplements, and other dewormers.

Almost every pet has had or will have a case of intestinal parasites at least once in his life. The two most common intestinal parasites in our pets are roundworms and hookworms.
COCCIDIA are small protozoans (one-celled organisms) that multiply in the intestinal tracts of dogs and cats.
Many pet owners believe that scratching is normal behavior for dogs. It is not. Scratching or rubbing the face or flanks, and licking at feet indicates that something is not right with your pet.
