Description


Uses

Drontal Plus (Praziquantel/Pyrantel Embonate/Febantel) is a canine dewormer which works in the intestinal tract, so as to eliminate roundworm and tapeworm in dogs. Parasites which are susceptible to it include toxocara canis and leonina, uncinaria stenocephala, ancylostoma caninum, trichuris vulpis, echinococcus spp., dipylidium caninum and taenia spp. This fixed combination de-worming medication is made up of 3 different anthelmintic medicines, each of which exhibits its own unique spectrum of activity and mechanism of action.

Praziquantel is active against tapeworm and the other species of cestodes that commonly infect dogs. It is quickly absorbed, and works by paralyzing the musculature of the parasites, which results in the worm being digested by the dog. Pyrantel is known to function as a cholinergic agonist, and by affecting the parasite`s cholinergic receptors, it is able to paralyze it, allowing for the intestinal tract to rid the body of the parasite. Febanetel works differently that the other ingredients. By blocking the glucose uptake and affecting the parasite`s metabolism, it helps to ensure that the parasite fully uses up its energy reserves, and it eventually dies.

Dogs who are infected by parasites may not exhibit many symptoms at the early stages of infection, however, should it remain untreated, diarrhea, poor appetite, vomiting and other symptoms may occur. It could also place the animal`s health at risk, and the pet`s owners may also be exposed to the parasite. For these reasons, vets often recommend regular de-worming so as to ensure the health of the animal and to reduce the risk of the parasite spreading.

Dosage and Administration

Drontal Plus (Praziquantel/Pyrantel Embonate/Febantel) comes as scored tablets or bone shaped flavored tablets. Both varieties contain the same amount of medicine. For the method of administration, owners may choose between feeding it directly to the pet or else concealing it in the food (recommended in cases of dogs that do not readily accept the medicine from their owners).

In all cases, the dosage required is dependent on body weight, and as a general guide, the heavier the animal is, the higher the dosage. Your veterinarian will be able to provide you with accurate dosing information, such as the required dosage and frequency of administration. Usually, the medicine is given as a single dose. However, in cases where the dog is believed to be at risk of reinfection (possibly due to the living environment), the veterinarian may recommend repeat treatment every 3 months in order to keep the animal parasite free.
