Complete deworming in one go
The thought of worms living inside your pet (or yourself) is enough to make anyone squirm. Once they get into your fur kid’s stomach, they survive by feeding off the stomach contents or worse, sucking your pet’s blood. If the worms are left untreated, they can grow in size and numbers and pose a serious risk to your fur kid’s health. For this reason, it’s best to deworm your pets at least every three months.
When you deworm your pets, you want to be sure you’re protecting them against the widest range of potential threats as possible. Drontal has been developed as a broad-spectrum dewormer that eliminates tapeworm, hookworm and roundworm infections in cats, dogs, kittens and puppies.
Drontal tablets come in a number of different forms, designed for various sized pets. The tablets can be given directly by mouth or – for the more fussy fur kids – disguised in a small amount of food, mixed into some meat or crushed and mixed into wet food.
Know the signs
While it is recommended to deworm adult dogs and cats at least four times a year, there are certain instances where more frequent deworming is needed. These instances include the deworming of puppies and kittens, cats that regularly hunt and eat mice and pets suffering from repeated flea problems (since fleas act as carriers for tapeworm).
Common symptoms of a worm infestation include diarrhoea, vomiting, loss of appetite, scooting, excessive cleaning of the rear-end and a bloated belly (most common in kittens and puppies). However, it’s important to know that not all pets with worms will show any of these symptoms. Which is why you must keep your fur kids on a regular deworming treatment schedule to ensure optimal protection.
If you suspect your fur kid has worms, consult your vet to establish the best course of treatment.
