How It Works

Praziquantel is a cestocide. Praziquantel works by damaging the parasite's skin internally so the parasite disintegrates and is removed by the pet's immune system.

Indications:

Droncit Feline Cestocide Tablets are indicated for the removal of the following feline cestodes: Dipylidium caninum and Taenia taeniaeformis.

Directions

View Droncit Feline product label.

Droncit Feline Cestocide Tablets may be administered directly per os or crumbled and mixed with the feed. The recommended dosage of praziquantel varies according to body weight. Smaller animals require a relatively larger dosage because of their higher metabolic rate. The optimum dose for each individual animal will be achieved by utilizing the following dosage schedule:

Cats and Kittens
4 pounds and under ½ tablet
5-1 pounds. 1 tablet
Over 11 pounds. 1 ½ tablets

*Not intended for use in kittens less than 6 weeks of age.

Fasting:

The recommended dosage of praziquantel is not affected by the presence or absence of food in the gastrointestinal tract, therefore, Fasting is neither necessary nor recommended.

Retreatment:

For those animals maintained on premises where reinfections are likely to occur, clients should be instructed in the steps necessary to prevent reinfection; otherwise, retreatment may be necessary. This is especially true in cases of Dipylidium caninum infections where reinfection is almost certain to occur if fleas are not removed from the animal and its environment.

Animal Safety:

The safety index has been derived from controlled safety evaluations, clinical trials and prior approved use in foreign countries.

Dosages of 5 times the labeled rate at 14 day intervals to cats as young as 5 ½ weeks did not produce clinical signs of toxicity. No significant clinical chemistry, hematological, or histopathological changes occurred. Symptoms of gross overdosage include vomition, salivation, diarrhea and depression.

Pregnancy:

Droncit (praziquantel) has been tested in breeding and pregnant cats. No adverse effects were noted.

Caution:

Federal (U.S.A.) law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.

Adverse Reactions:

One instance of diarrhea and one of salivation (1.5%) were reported during the field trials in which 135 cats were administered Droncit Feline Cestocide.
