Always tell your veterinarian about any medications or supplements your pet is taking prior to giving this medication. Do not give Drontal Plus if your pet is already receiving another deworming medication unless directed to by your veterinarian.
Do not give Drontal Plus to puppies under 3 weeks or 2 pounds. Animals who are allergic to any of the active ingredients also should not take Drontal Plus. Do not use Drontal in pregnant or lactating females. Discuss the steps you can take to prevent reinfection and to prevent spread of intestinal parasites to humans in your household with your veterinarian. Strict hygienic precautions should be taken when handling dogs or feces suspected of harboring E. multilocularis. Infected dogs treated for the first time with Drontal Plus Taste Tabs Tablets and dogs treated at intervals greater than 28 days may shed eggs in the feces after treatment. The animal should be held in the clinic during this interval and all feces should be incinerated or autoclaved. If these procedures are not possible, the eggs can be destroyed by soaking the feces in a sodium hypochlorite (bleach) solution of 3.75% or greater. All areas where the animal was maintained or in contact with should be thoroughly cleaned with sodium hypochlorite and allowed to dry completely before reuse.

Drontal Plus (praziquantel/pyrantel pamoate/febantel) is an oral deworming medication from Bayer that is used to kill and remove intestinal worms in dogs and puppies with a single dose. It has a broad range of activity and targets the four main types of worms that infect dogs and puppies: tapeworms, roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms. Drontal Plus is the market leader and the number one selling deworming product for dogs.1 It is considered the most complete, single-dose dewormer for dogs available on the market.
Drontal Plus (praziquantel/pyrantel pamoate/febantel) is a FDA-approved drug that combines three active ingredients, praziquantel, pyrantel pamoate and febantel, to safely and effectively remove common intestinal worms in dogs. These three ingredients each have a mode of action that enables Drontal Plus to kill nine different species of intestinal worms.
Drontal Plus (praziquantel/pyrantel pamoate/febantel) is available in two forms: Tablets and Taste Tabs. The tablets typically need to be administered with a pill pouch or wrapped in a type of food that your dog will readily eat. Drontal Plus Taste Tabs are formulated to provide a tasty treat-like experience through the flavor of beef. Please see the chart below to find the size and number of tablets that corresponds with your dog.
Have you ever seen your dog eat grass or roll around in the dirt? Does your dog go to the dog park and play with other dogs? Has your dog ever had fleas? These are factors that can put your pet at risk for acquiring intestinal worms. There are three basic ways your dog can become infected:
The simple answer is no. Intestinal worms have been identified in every age category in dogs.
Because the four types of worms that can cause harm to your dog are all different with their own unique lifecycles and feeding methods, there are a variety of signs that your dog may show if infected. The most common signs are typically diarrhea and vomiting. Weight loss, a bloated belly, coughing, and dehydration are also a possibility. Severe cases with heavy infections can result in death. It is important to note that many infected dogs will not show any signs at all. It is not uncommon for a veterinarian to identify parasite eggs on a routine fecal exam despite the dog appearing and behaving perfectly normal. This is why it is important to have your dog examined by a veterinarian at least once a year. Even though intestinal worms might not seem to be harming your pet at the moment, they might later on. In addition, just because your pet is not showing symptoms, does not mean the worms present are not actively shedding eggs into the environment, putting other pets and even you at risk.
There is no set answer, and it depends on the unique situation of your dog, including his age, behavior, and environment. It is important to note that dogs infected with intestinal parasites often need a few rounds of deworming (this is especially important in puppies) to adequately clear out infections. This is because an infected dog will often harbor different life stages of worms, some of which will not be killed by the first dose. By deworming a few weeks later, the life stages that were not killed by the first treatment will have grown old enough to be killed by the second treatment. Your veterinarian can help provide you with an appropriate deworming strategy that best fits your dog’s needs.
Your dog can be at risk of acquiring intestinal worms any time of the year. Many of the eggs that get released into the environment are very durable and can survive environmental extremes, often spanning several years. It is important as a dog owner to always be aware and on guard year-round. Warmer weather can especially increase the risk of your dog acquiring intestinal worms. This is because people tend to spend more time with their dogs outside and wildlife becomes more active, increasing the likelihood of spreading and dispersing eggs into the environment.
The answer is yes. The same roundworms, tapeworms, and hookworms that can infect your dog can also infect you. If your dog has intestinal worms, there is a risk of you or other family members becoming infected. The most common way people can become infected with intestinal worms is through a contaminated environment. When microscopic eggs are passed in a pet’s feces, they disperse into the soil, grass and other areas where they can be picked up and accidentally ingested. In addition, immature hookworms can actually penetrate a person’s bare skin via close contact if stepped or laid on. See the preventive practices question for more information.
While compounded products may have similar active ingredients and claims as Drontal Plus (praziquantel/pyrantel pamoate/febantel), Drontal Plus is a unique, patented product approved by the FDA. Because of this, everything that goes into each Drontal Plus tablet or taste tab is carefully regulated and made under strict guidelines. In addition, Drontal Plus has undergone extensive safety, stability, and effectiveness testing to make sure that it is safe and effective for your dog. Compounded medications, on the other hand, are typically not subject to such rigorous guidelines and testing. If presented with a compounded deworming product featuring similar ingredients and claims to that of Drontal Plus, we encourage you to inquire if that product has undergone safety and stability testing as well as studies showing it to be effective in removing the parasites it is indicated for.
This is not a silent squeak toy. Very loud and abrasive. This would be fine if I hadn’t chosen silent squeak as advertised.
Great to give to my dogs and it looks like a bone so they take it as a treat! Well done chewy well done
