The tablet can be divided into equal halves.


4.1 Target species


4.2 Indications for use, specifying the target species

For the treatment of mixed infections caused by the following gastrointestinal roundworms and tapeworms:

Roundworms: Toxocara cati, Toxascaris leonina,

Tapeworms: Dipylidium caninum, Taenia taeniaeformis, Echinococcus multilocularis.

4.3 Contraindications

Do not use simultaneously with piperazine compounds.

Do not use in kittens less than 6 weeks of age.

Do not use in animals with known hypersensitivity to the active substances or to any of the excipients.

4.4 Special warnings for each target species

Fleas serve as intermediate hosts for one common type of tapeworm – Dipylidium caninum. Tapeworm infestation is certain to reoccur unless control of intermediate hosts such as fleas, mice, etc. is undertaken.

Parasitic resistance to a certain class of anthelmintics can occur after frequent and repeated use of an anthelmintic from this class.

4.5 Special precautions for use

Special precautions for use in animals

Not applicable.

Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals

In the interests of good hygiene, persons administering the tablets directly to the cat, or by adding them to the cat’s food, should wash their hands afterwards.

In case of accidental ingestion, seek medical advice and show the package leaflet to the physician.

4.6 Adverse reactions (frequency and seriousness)

None known.

4.7 Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay

Do not use during pregnancy but may be used during lactation.

4.8 Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction

Do not use simultaneously with piperazine compounds.

4.9 Amounts to be administered and administration route

To ensure administration of a correct dose, body weight should be determined as accurately as possible.


The recommended dose is: 20 mg/kg pyrantel (57.5 mg/kg pyrantel embonate) and 5 mg/kg praziquantel. This is equivalent to 1 tablet per 4 kg bodyweight.

Body weight


1.0 - 2.0 kg


2.1 - 4.0 kg


4.1 - 6.0 kg

1 ½

6.1 - 8.0 kg


Administration and duration of treatment

Single oral administration. The tablet should be given directly to the cat, but if necessary can be disguised in food.

In ascarid infestation, especially in kittens, complete elimination cannot be expected, so a risk of infection for humans can persist. Repeat treatments should, therefore, be carried out with a suitable roundworm product at 14 day intervals until 2-3 weeks after weaning.

4.10 Overdose (symptoms, emergency procedures, antidotes), if necessary

After doses higher than 5 times the recommended dose, signs of intolerance such as vomiting have been observed.

4.11 Withdrawal period(s)

Not applicable.


Pharmacotherapeutic group: Anthelmintics, praziquantel combinations.

ATC vet code: QP52AA51

5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties

This product contains anthelmintics active against gastrointestinal roundworms and tapeworms. The product contains two active substances, as follows:

  1. Pyrantel embonate (pamoate), a tetrahydropyrimidine derivative


  1. Praziquantel, a partially hydrogenated pyrazinoisoquinoline derivative.

Pyrantel acts as a cholinergic agonist. Its mode of action is to stimulate nicotinic cholinergic receptors of the parasite, induce spastic paralysis and thereby allow expulsion from the gastro-intestinal (GI) system by peristalsis.

Praziquantel is very rapidly absorbed and distributed throughout the parasite. Both in vitro and in vivo studies have shown that praziquantel causes severe damage to the parasite integument, resulting in contraction and paralysis. There is an almost instantaneous tetanic contraction of the parasite musculature and a rapid vacuolization of the syncytial tegument. This rapid contraction has been explained by changes in divalent cation fluxes, especially calcium.

In this fixed combination, pyrantel is active against the following ascarids: Toxocara cati, and Toxascaris leonina. Praziquantel is effective against tapeworms in particular Dipylidium caninum and Taenia taeniaeformis.

Since it contains praziquantel, the product is effective against Echinococcus multilocularis,.

5.2 Pharmacokinetic particulars

Praziquantel is rapidly absorbed, metabolised and distributed in the body. It is also believed to be excreted back into the intestinal lumen by the mucous membrane.

Following administration of the product to cats, peak plasma concentrations of praziquantel were achieved by approximately 2 hours.

Pyrantel is poorly absorbed so it is expected that a large proportion of the administered dose remains in the GIT where it exerts its therapeutic effect and it is excreted largely unchanged in the faeces.

Following administration of the product to cats, peak plasma concentrations of pyrantel were achieved by approximately 3 hours.

  • VioVet Staff

Wormers like this will start working within hours and worms will be expelled over the few days after treating.

Half tablet


If my dog is less than 5kg, should I be giving her just half the tablet? Frequency is every 3 mths or every mth?

  • VioVet Staff

If your dog weighs 2.6kg to 5kg then 1/2 tablet of Prazitel Plus is a safe an appropriate dose. If your dog weighs 0.5kg to 2.5kg then 1/4 tablet is the correct dose. Every 3 months worming is advised but it can be more frequent if your dog is very prone to scavenging and picking up worms outside, for example commonly eats other animals faeces or raw ffood.

How often

Elizabeth White

How often do I administer this wormer.

  • VioVet Staff

Worming every 3 months is recommended for the average cat. If your cat is a prolific hunter then monthly dosing during the hunting season is advised. Equally if your cat is indoors only and the risk of scavenging is almost negligible then every 6 months can suffice.

What is the difference between plus and very big plus?

Yifat wallach

My dog is 33 Kg. which tablet will fit him?

  • VioVet Staff

The difference depends on your dog's weight and the doseage required. A single dose is effective and should be given at a dose rate of up
to 1 tablet per 10kg bodyweight for Prazitel Plus and 1 tablet per 35kg
bodyweight for Prazitel Plus XL.

I would advise 1 tablet of Prazitel Plus XL for your 33kg dog.

Can this product be given to puppies?

  • VioVet Staff

This wormer can be used on puppies from 2 weeks of age.

Mother cat


My mother cat has worms but only gave birth two weeks ago. Is it safe to give her a wormer?

  • VioVet Staff

Yes, this is perfectly safe. The kittens are likely to have worms also, as some types of roundworm can get into the mammary glands, and pass to the kittens in their mother's milk. While they are not weaned and she is cleaning them up when they go to the toilet, the kittens will be a source of infection for her also.

I'd recommend worming her with Prazitel every 4 weeks until they are fully weaned. The kittens can't have Prazitel until they at least 6 weeks old and weighing at least 1kg. While they're small, I recommend using something like Panacur Paste or Panacur Suspension with them at 2, 5, 8 and 12 weeeks of age (or just before they leave your home).

I hope this helps!

Is this for both worms

Are these for both type of worms

  • VioVet Staff

Yes, Prazitel treats all common types of roundworms (nematodes) and tapeworms (cestodes) found in dogs and cats, including Ascarids, Hookworms, and Whipworms. It unfortunately cannot treat heartworm though, you would need to ask your vet to prescribe a product for this if your dog is in a high risk area.

Prazitel Worming Tablets for Dogs & Cats

i did not receive a leaflet for use with the packet. i do not know how frequently to administer this tablet. is it once every four months ... or?

  • VioVet Staff

The usual frequency of administration for a wormer such as this would be once every 3 months. However it depends a bit on each dog. If your dog is a particular scavenger then you could worm up to once a month but usually every 3 months is enough.
