Every cat can get worms – however soundly they’re sleeping. Cats with worms often won’t show any signs of a worm infection, but left untreated they can lead to serious health complications for you and your family. Drontal cat XL film-coated tablets are highly-effective and shaped to make worming easier for both you and your cat. You might not know if your cat has intestinal worms, but you can trust Drontal to help combat them.

INSTRUCTIONS

For single oral administration.

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.

Thought I'd try this wormer tablet as the spot on treatment makes a mess of my cat's coat but the tablet is so large that it was an impossible task getting it into him.

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
Patricia

  • 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

Sara

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.
