Indications for Drontal Plus 68mg

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 — 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 medicine’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.
