Drontal is the only wormer to kill every type of intestinal worm commonly found in UK cats.

Drontal Worming Tablet - For Cats works with a single dose and kills all the common intestinal worms found in cats in the UK. There are about 8 different types of intestinal worm that can infect cats in the UK. It is not always easy to spot the symptoms, and as your vet will tell you, that is why it's best to use a reliable worming treatment every three months to prevent any serious worm infection. To avoid worms reaching maturity and affecting your cat's health, and to reduce public health risks, you should worm your cat regularly. Worming with Drontal every three months will reduce this risk.

Drontal Worming Tablets is for the treatment of  the following gastrointestinal roundworms, hookworms and tapeworms of cats:

Roundworms: Toxocara cati, Toxascaris leonina

Tapeworms: Dipylidium caninum, Taenia taeniaeformis, Echinococcus multilocularis, Joyeuxiella pasqualei

Hookworms: Ancylostoma braziliense, Ancylostoma tubaeforme

It's not easy to determine whether a cat is infected with worms, particularly in the early stages. Your cat may suffer from vomiting or diarrhoea, and their coat may lose condition. A cat with tapeworms may spend more time than usual cleaning its bottom, since the egg-filled worm segments irritate it. You may even find segments in the cat's bedding - they are pale in colour, and about the size of a grain of rice.

A heavy roundworm infection may cause the cat's stomach to appear swollen and distended; this is particularly noticeable in kittens.

In general, though, by the time symptoms are noticeable your cat's health is already being damaged, and the worms have reached maturity. This means that they will be producing eggs and creating a reservoir of infection in the environment.

Far better to worm your cat with Drontal Worming Tablets on a regular basis, before the symptoms become obvious.

These would include the worming of puppies and kittens, hunting cats which eat mice, and dogs and cats which experience repeated flea problems

4.7 stars

Used the products before with good results. Found answering all the questions for two cats and also when ordering for a dog a bit tedious. Many of the questions answered themselves from the type of products I was buying.
