Virbac Tapewormer for Dogs and Cats

Virbac Tapewormer is a generic of Droncit tablets

There are several different species of tapeworms that pets can be infected with. The species of greatest importance include Dipylidium caninum (flea tapeworm) and Echinococcus granulosus (hydatid tapeworm). The flea tapeworm is the most common species of tapeworm that infects dogs but infection with this worm does not usually cause any ill effects. However, the hydatid tapeworm poses a serious health risk to humans, despite not causing any real ill effects to dogs.

Active Constituents: 50mg Praziquantel.

Directions for Use

All animals should be treated for tapeworm control at three monthly intervals (every six weeks in dogs in Hydatid areas) commencing at three months of age. In addition, breeding females should be treated at mating; approximately one week before birth and thereafter every three months. Weigh dogs and cats before treatment. Dogs and cats are treated by weight with the appropriate number of tablets. All tablets are to be administered at the same time, by mouth, or crushed and sprinkled on food.
