    Kills tape worm + how to give a pill

    By Bevy on Jun 18, 2020

    Working in cat rescue years ago, this was my preferred wormer. For tapeworm, a second dose is needed in 2 weeks to kill any new hatched eggs! Be sure to read the label for correct dosing. My best luck for giving pills? Use a dropper to give cat a bit of water to moisten their throat. Have pill ready Working in cat rescue years ago, this was my preferred wormer. For tapeworm, a second dose is needed in 2 weeks to kill any new hatched eggs! Be sure to read the label for correct dosing. My best luck for giving pills? Use a dropper to give cat a bit of water to moisten their throat. Have pill ready, coated with butter! After giving pill, give a bit more water via dropper and love / praise kitty for being sooooo good! :-) Give kitty a small amount of watered down soft food as a treat and to prevent stomach upset or vomiting. Good luck. … more

    Drontal - major side effects

    By 2Cats on Mar 13, 2020

    Our kittens had severe side effects to this medicine 2 nights in a row and we had to stop it. The kittens had such serious eye reactions to the drug they must not have been able to even see well for hours and hours. They couldn’t recognize each other and would hiss and were scared of each other when Our kittens had severe side effects to this medicine 2 nights in a row and we had to stop it. The kittens had such serious eye reactions to the drug they must not have been able to even see well for hours and hours. They couldn’t recognize each other and would hiss and were scared of each other when they would walk into a room. A weird white membrane formed over 1/2 their eyes. Like a milky colored film. Their eyes also would roll back. They acted totally drugged out for hours. One of them vomited and foamed are the mouth hours after they had the pill administered. They were obviously nauseous and couldn’t eat or drink til the next day. But the scariest effect was the eye membrane and the psychotic episode of just staring into space, moving super slowly and drugged, not being able to really see. … more

    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.
