Drontal for Cats XL Wormer
Drontal Cat XL Wormer Ellipsoid is for a combined treatment for the roundworm and tapeworm (Toxocara cati, Toxascaris leonina, Dipylidium caninum, Taenia taeniaeformis) in larger cats.
It is supplied in ellipsoid tablets, either individually or in packs of 48. Each tablet is whitey brown in colour and are unscored. Each Drontal Cat XL film coated tablet contains 30mg praziquantel, 345mg pyrantel embonate and 2.6mg titanium dioxide.
How do I work out the dosage of Drontal Cat Wormer (XL)?
You should give one Drontal Cat XL tablet per 6kg of bodyweight. Tablets can be given with or without food, so there is no need to starve your cat before or after treatment.
Cats should be treated every 3 months and in the event of a heavy roundworm infestation, a repeat dose should be given after 14 days.
If your cat weighs less than 6kg you should use Drontal Cat worming tablets, which are intended for use in smaller cats.
How do I give Drontal for Cats XL Film-coated Tablets?
You can give the tablets to your cat by placing directly in the cat's mouth and encouraging them to swallow. If you this does not work or you are not confident about doing it, you can hide the medicine in the cat's food or mould a 'squishy' treat (such as EasyPill) around them to disguise them medicine.
How should I store Drontal for Cats XL Film-coated Tablets?
As with all medicines keep them safely out of reach and sight of children. Do not store above 25 degrees Centigrade. Only remove tablets from the foil strip when they are required for use.
Safely dispose of any unused tablets, or tablets opened in error but do not keep them for future use. Do not use Drontal Cat XL after the expiry date stated on the foil strip.
Praziquantel is also effective against Echinococcus multilocularis, which again does not occur in the UK, but is becoming more common in some European countries. So if your cat has been taken overseas, it is recommended that they are treated with wormer such as Drontal Cat XL before returning to the UK.

Feedback for Drontal Cat XL Wormer (Single & Multibuy) has been compiled from 443 customer reviews
Our cat spends most of her time out in the fields hunting mice so she needs a good wormer and Drontal does the job.
They work and my cat is very good with tablets, as they are quite big. I normally have a child's medicine syringe filled with water to help him swollow the tablet.
The price of these tablets is considerably less than the price I have been paying for them on other online retailers.
