FAQ

What is Drontal for Cats?

These are tablets that are available by prescription. They are used to remove tapeworms, hookworms and large roundworms in cats and kittens.

What are the benefits of Drontal for Cats?

  • Broad-spectrum action that works to remove multiple species of intestinal worms.
  • Scored tablets allow for accurate dosing in cats and kittens of all sizes.
  • Can be given directly by mouth or in your pets food.

How is this medication given?

Give Drontal orally directly by mouth or crumbled and mixed with a small amount of food. Use only as directed by your veterinarian. If you give tablet(s) with food, monitor your cat closely to make sure he/she eats all of the food. Always call your veterinarian if you have difficulty giving this medication correctly.

How does this medication work?

Praziquantel and pyrantel pamoate are the active ingredients in Drontal. The active ingredients in this medication cause spasms, paralysis and eventual death of susceptible parasites. The parasite is either destroyed entirely or passed through your pets feces.

What results can I expect?

Tapeworms, hookworms and roundworms in the intestinal tract of cats and kittens should be eliminated but it may take several days of treatment to see optimal results. Drontal will kill the adult worms that are present but this medication will not prevent reinfection.

    needs flavoring

    By on

    crushed and mixed in food our cats always devour, however they ate a few bits, and would not finish their food, as the pills obviously taste bad. A waste of over $30., and my cats are not wormed!!! 1 star is for the product. Chewy gets 5 star for obtaining the RX from my vet and quick service.

    I bought the Babble Ball and I don’t see how the dog can carry it. Let alone get a good taste of something. Thank you!

    It works on worms!

    By on

    The three star review that prefers liquid from vet: that liquid is Strongid, which is just pyrantel pamoate and works for roundworms. The advantage of Drontal is contains praziquantel (in addition to pyrantel pamoate) so kills tapeworms as well. The praziquantel is what tastes bitter and why need to give as a pill and not dissolve into a liquid or mix with food. Sometimes a Pill Pocket works. Do wish the pills were smaller. I usually split mine and put in empty gel caps then use a pill popper (pill gun) to get them down. I use multiple doses of Strongid to get rid of roundworms, and then a Drontal to get the tapeworms too. Make sure on flea prevention first as tapeworms come from swallowing fleas The three star review that prefers liquid from vet: that liquid is Strongid, which is just pyrantel pamoate and works for roundworms.

    Quick, effective

    By on

    Drontal has been very effective for my cats when they had worms after coming home from the shelter. They are priced almost identically to what I’d pick up from the vet, and my cat tolerated the pills with the moderate amount of fuss I’d expect from any cat. Ordering through Chewy was easy, and my vet approved the prescription within 24 hours. The shipment arrived within about 2 days after the prescription was approved.

    Country cats

    Our four cats have a job: they are outside all day catching mice and gophers. They get worms from their prey. Ten pound cats need a tab and a half of Drontal. It works, but why does it cost so much? Please work to bring the price down.

    VERY effective for roundworm, but...

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    Drontal is probably the best medicine out there for roundworms. Clears it up when nothing else works. BUT... the pills I got are 3/8", even larger than an aspirin for humans. I nearly choked my cats trying to stick this in their mouths. I've used Drontal in the past and I recall the pills being much smaller. So then I tried crushing it, mixing with water, and using a syringe. Nope, they're bitter, and my cats salivated goopy yellow froth all over the floor. Tried mixing it with food, they wouldn't touch it. Out of desperation I called my vet and brought all 8 cats in. They have a Drontal prep that's a banana flavored liquid, and the cats took it without any problems. So having bought 16 pills Drontal is probably the best medicine out there for roundworms.
