How does Drontal Plus get rid of worms in dogs?
Answer

The active ingredients in Drontal Plus are praziquantel, pyrantel pamoate, and febantel. Praziquantel operates by damaging the skin of the worms, causing them to lose their ability to resist the host's digestive enzymes. This results in the worms becoming vulnerable to digestion and elimination from the host's body.

What types of worms does Drontal Plus treat in dogs?
Answer

Drontal Plus is a broad-spectrum dewormer used to treat canine intestinal worms of various sorts. The active ingredients of Drontal Plus include praziquantel, pyrantel pamoate, and febantel, which work together to effectively eliminate tapeworms, hookworms, roundworms, and whipworms in dogs.

Is Drontal Plus safe for medium-sized dogs?
Answer

Yes, Drontal Plus is generally considered safe for use in medium-sized dogs. However, as with any medication, you should follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian to ensure your dog's safety and the effectiveness of the treatment.

At what age can I give Drontal Plus to my medium-sized dog?
Answer

In general, Drontal Plus is safe for use in dogs who are at least 3 weeks old or 2 pounds in weight.

How frequently should I give Drontal Plus to my medium-sized dog?
Answer

The frequency with which you should administer Drontal Plus to your medium-sized dog depends on a number of parameters, including their age, health status, and risk of exposure to intestinal parasites. Deworming adult dogs with a broad-spectrum dewormer like Drontal Plus is often advised to be done at least every 3-6 months, or as directed by your veterinarian. Dogs and puppies who are more likely to become infected with intestinal parasites may need to be dewormed more frequently, such as every 2-4 weeks until they are 12 weeks old, then once a month until they are 6 months old, and then every 3-6 months after that.

Should I give Drontal Plus to my pregnant or lactating dog?
Answer

Yes, you can. Drontal Plus is generally considered safe for use in dogs, including pregnant and lactating dogs. However, it is still essential to speak with your vet before giving your dog any medicine.

How do I administer Drontal Plus to my medium-sized dog?
Answer

Dogs take Drontal Plus tablets orally and they come in a variety of shapes and quantities. The tablets can be given directly by placing them in your dog's mouth, or they can be hidden in a small amount of food. However, you should always monitor your dog to ensure they have swallowed the tablet and do not spit it out, and follow any follow-up deworming treatments recommended by your veterinarian.

Can I give Drontal Plus to my medium-sized dog on an empty stomach?
Answer

Yes, you can. While Drontal Plus can be administered to dogs on an empty stomach, it is generally recommended to give the medication with food, as this can help cut down the risk of gastrointestinal issues and improve absorption. Additionally, hiding the tablet in a small amount of food can make it easier to administer to your dog.

How long does it take for Drontal Plus to start working?
Answer

Drontal Plus is a fast-acting dewormer that starts working quickly after administration. According to the manufacturer, Bayer Animal Health, the active ingredients in Drontal Plus (praziquantel, pyrantel pamoate, and febantel) work to kill intestinal parasites within 24 hours of treatment. The exact time it takes for Drontal Plus to start working may vary based on individual circumstances, such as the type and severity of the parasitic infection, and the overall health of the dog.

How should I store Drontal Plus?
Answer

Drontal Plus should be stored in a cool and dry place at room temperature between 68-77ยฐF (20-25ยฐC). It is important to keep the medication out of reach of children and pets to prevent accidental ingestion. Additionally, the tablets should be kept in their original packaging until use to protect them from light and moisture.

What should I do if my dog spits out the Drontal Plus tablet?
Answer

If your dog spits out the Drontal Plus tablet, you should try to administer it again. You can either give the tablet directly by placing it at the back of your dog's throat and stroking their throat to encourage swallowing, or you can hide the tablet in a small amount of food to make it more palatable. If your dog still refuses to take the tablet, you should consult with your veterinarian for guidance.

Can Drontal Plus be used for the prevention of worms in medium-sized dogs?

Drontal plus 68mg is the most commonly prescribed dewormer medication for veterinary use in medium and large dogs. The medication is an active remedy against a range of worm-borne infections caused by tapeworms, whipworms, large roundworms and hookworms. In certain cases the drug is also used in treating parasite infection in medium and large cats. The drug contains three main ingredients โ€” praziquantel, pyrantel pamoate and febantel. Each of the three ingredients present in the medicine is capable of acting separately, without suppressing the effect of its co-components. It is the combined effect of all three that provides the medicineโ€™s effective deworming properties to fight a broad spectrum of worm attacks in animals. Drontal plus 68mg is a drug that requires prescription, and is available for use as scored tablets.
