Drontal Oral Suspension Worming Drops for Puppies - 100ml
Pale red liquid for oral administration to dogs (puppies and young dogs up to one year of age).
For the treatment of roundworm infections in puppies and young dogs up to one year of age caused by:
Ascarids : Toxocara canis
Hookworms : Uncinaria stenocephala, Ancylostoma caninum
Whipworms : Trichuris vulpis
In this fixed combination product, the pyrantel and febantel act against nematodes (ascarids, hookworms and whipworms) of dogs. In particular, the spectrum of activity covers Toxocara canis, Ancyclostoma caninum and Trichuris vulpis. Its mode of action is to induce spastic paralysis and thereby allowing removal from the gastro-intestinal (GI) system by paralysis. The parasite dies upon exhaustion of its energy reserves, which occurs 2-3 days later.
Do not use simultaneously with piperazine compounds.

Through intrauterine and trans-mammary infection, ascarid infestation may occur in dogs at a very early age. For some animals, especially in case of severe infections, elimination of ascarids may be incomplete, and a potential risk of infections to humans cannot be excluded. Where epidemiologically appropriate, it is recommended that treatment should be started at 2 weeks of age and should be performed repeatedly at suitable intervals (for example every 2 weeks), until weaning. Otherwise treatment should be based upon confirmed infection, for example the results of faecal examinations.
