For the control of roundworms, hookworms and whipworms in puppies and small dogs
Drontal Suspension is recommended for the control of gastrointestinal worms in puppies and small dogs including:
- Roundworm Toxocara canis, Toxascaris leonina.
- Hookworm Ancylostoma caninum, Ancylostoma braziliense (This hookworm is rare outside the coastal areas of north Queensland, Northern Territory and northern Western Australia), Uncinaria stenocephala.
- Whipworm Trichuris vulpis.
Drontal Suspension contains two distinctly different active ingredients. The febantel/pyrantel combination is active against hookworms and roundworms. Febantel alone is highly effective against whipworm. Hookworms and roundworms may infect puppies while still in the mother’s womb (roundworm) or as soon as they suckle milk (hookworm and roundworm). Therefore effective control of these parasites is essential.
