How often should I give my dog Drontal® Plus?

Dogs currently infected with intestinal parasites often need a few rounds of deworming (this is especially important in puppies) to adequately clear out infections. This is because an infected dog will often harbor different life stages of worms, some of which will not be killed by the first dose. Your veterinarian can help provide you with an appropriate deworming strategy that best fits your dog’s needs.

How does Drontal® Plus work?

The unique combination of ingredients in Drontal® Plus attack the worms in your pet’s intestinal tract. When given to a dog, the active ingredients concentrate in the intestines, coming into direct contact with the worms. The worms will disintegrate, break apart, or become paralyzed and then be expelled in your pet’s stool.
