You might not know if your cat has intestinal worms, but you can trust Drontal to help combat them.

For cats 4-6kg = 1 tablet

For cats greater than 6kg, it may be more convenient to use Dronspot Spot On Wormer for Large Cats.

The tablets can be given directly, but if necessary, can be disguised in food.

How often should I worm my cat?

Research has shown that the majority of cats in the UK should be wormed monthly, based on their home environment and lifestyle such as scavenging, hunting, and spending time outdoors.* However, there may be situations where less frequent treatment is required and it’s best to speak to your vet about the most appropriate worming frequency for your cat.

Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Drontal Wormer Tablets for Large Cats (Over 4kg), including answers from our team.

13 August 2022 at 5:08pm

Suitable for cats weighing 4.5kg?


I’ve read the dosage on the back and it says for cats over 6kg, but it’s says on the front suitable for over 4kg.
There’s quite a difference between 4 & 6kg.

  • VioVet Staff

This wormer is intended for use in cats over 4kg. it is dosed at 1 tablet per 6kg, so your 4.5kg cat would need one tablet.

Effectiveness between spot on and tablet

Patricia Askew

We have adopted a large cat: 6.7kg. Do you think there is any difference between the effectiveness of the Drontal tablet (especially if given on the food) and the spot on Dronspot product. Giving cats tablets I know is difficult and we'd rather use the other product as he is a big ginger tom but we would try to give an oral medication if that was better.
Thanks for your help

  • VioVet Staff

Dronspot and Drontal contain different active ingredients but they are both licensed and proven to treat the same types of intestinal worms. There should be no difference in efficacy between them because of this, it is advised to use whichever one is more convenient for you and your pet.

Worming Treatment Dose


Do I need to retreat after an obvious worm infestation or does a single dose kill all worms? If I need to give second dose, when would I do this? Thanks in advance.

  • VioVet Staff

A single dose should be effective at clearing a worm infestation. If the worm burden is particularly high and you want to be certain it is cleared then treatment can be repeated 1 week later, however this is not usually necessary for most infections.
