Drontal Worming Suspension for Puppies is a convenient liquid worming treatment. It treats and controls roundworm, whipworm and hookworm. In addition, it is safe for the treatment of puppies from 2 weeks of age. Does not control heartworm.
Dogs are constantly exposed to intestinal worms, even before they are born. Some species of worms can transfer to puppies through the placenta or from their mother’s milk, while adult dogs are exposed to worm larvae or eggs through the soil in parks and backyards.
Puppies under 6 months of age need to be wormed more frequently than adults because their rapid growth quickly makes the (previous) dose ineffective.
Un-wormed puppies are at risk of developing gastrointestinal problems like diarrhoea and vomiting, poor growth, anaemia and even death. Therefore, to avoid this they should be wormed with Drontal every 2 weeks from 2 to 12 weeks of age, then monthly until they are at least 6 months old.
Each mL of Drontal Puppy Worming Suspension contains Febantel 15mg, Pyrantel Embonate 14.4mg
