    FAQS: Drontal Dosing

    How often do I need to worm my dog with Drontal?

    It is recommended that an adult dog is treated for intestinal worms at least every three months. However, there may be situations when more frequent treatment is necessary, for example if your dog has a flea problem, as fleas can reinfect your dog with tapeworm. Monthly worming may be advised if your dog is a scavenger or if there is regular contact with young children. Speak with your vet about the most appropriate worming frequency for your dog.

     

    ,

    How often should I worm my puppy with Drontal?

    Puppies should be given their first worming treatment at two weeks old and then wormed again every two weeks until they are 12 weeks old. They can then be wormed once a month until 6 months old. After that you should then revert to worming your pup at least every three months.<
    Remember, because many puppies contract worms from their mother, it’s important to worm her as regularly as the puppies until they are weaned.

     

    ,

    Should I give Drontal with or without food?

    Whichever you find easier- you can give your pet his tablet or oral suspension directly into his mouth, or in his food. Drontal Tasty tablets for dogs are often taken voluntarily by dogs as they are meat flavoured.

     

    ,

    Can I use a flea treatment at the same time as Drontal?

    Absolutely. Drontal can be used in conjunction with flea treatment, such as Advantage® Spot-on, which kills fleas within 24 hours. In fact it’s advisable to use both products together to give your pet complete protection from worms. That’s because, if your pet has fleas, they’re at risk of picking up a tapeworm infection too.

    Can worms in my dog affect my family and me?

    ,

    Fleas can be infected with the larval stage of the flea tapeworm. If your dog swallows an infected flea, he can end up with a tapeworm living inside him.

    My pet isn't showing any signs of infection – why should I worm him?

    There aren’t always visible signs that your pet has worms. But most pet owners would agree that their pet would be healthier and happier without a parasitic worm living inside him! And it’s worth remembering that worms can cause disease in people too, so regular worming of pets is important not just to help protect their health, but to help reduce the risk worms pose to us as well.

     

    ,

    Can my vet give my pet anything to prevent worms?

    Unfortunately not. You can’t completely stop your dog coming into contact with worms in the first place, but using a wormer like Drontal regularly will help him combat any unwanted passengers that he does come across.

     

    ,

    Can I do anything else to help reduce the risk from worms?

    Cleaning up your dog’s faeces is a great way to reduce the risk. A single dog roundworm (Toxocara canis) can produce up to 85,000 eggs a day, and these are all excreted when your dog goes to the toilet. If you don't clear it up, all of those eggs will remain in the environment ready to infect other dogs – and possibly humans, too.
