Drontal is a broad spectrum dewormer used in the treatment of tapeworms, hookworms and large roundworms in cats and kittens. Consult your veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment and control of parasites. Drontal's active ingredients are praziquantel, pyrantel pamoate and febantel, which are proven to eradicate the most common intestinal parasites. A convenient easy single-dose administration and each tablet is scored for easy breakage. Can be given directly by mouth or in a small amount of food. Not for use in kittens less than two months old or weighing less than two pounds. Because humans can contract tapeworm from animals, it is important to maintain good personal hygiene. It is also important to eliminate fleas on the pet and in the household and to not feed the pet rodents or uncooked meat or fish. To prevent reinfection, daily cleanup of stools is recommended.
To assure proper dosage, weigh the cat prior to treatment.

Steps should be taken to prevent parasite infections, otherwise retreatment will be necessary.
Tapeworms transmitted by fleas will likely recur unless measures are taken to control fleas. Flea control procedures must include insecticide treatment of the cat's environment (i.e. bedding and resting areas) as well as direct treatment of the cat with topical solutions, dips, powders, sprays or other approved insecticides.
Roundworms and hookworms are controlled in cats by maintaining an environment free of infective eggs and larvae. Feces and soiled litter should be removed on a daily basis to prevent build-up of eggs and larvae in the environment.
Certain parasites such as tapeworms and large roundworms are transmitted to the cat after they eat infected rodents. Controlling the predatory habits of cats, i.e., catching and eating rodents, will prevent these parasite infections.
Cats maintained under conditions of constant exposure to parasite infections should have a follow-up fecal exam within 2 to 4 weeks after the first treatment.
If reinfection with tapeworms, hookworms or large roundworms occurs, treatment with Drontal® Tablets may be repeated.
