Tapeworming Made Easy
Spot-on use for external application to the skin. The cat should be accurately weighed prior to treatment to ensure that the correct pipette size is used.
Remove one Pipette from package. Hold pipette in upright position, twist and pull off cap and use the opposite end of the cap to break the seal.
Part the fur on the cat’s neck at the base of the skull until skin is visible. Place the tip of the pipette on the skin and squeeze firmly several times to empty the contents directly onto the skin. Application on the base of the skull will minimise the ability of the cat to lick the product off.
To minimise the possibility of run-off after application of more than one pipette, it is advised that the applications should be performed slowly to allow absorption and that it may be advisable to allows the contents of the previous pipette to be absorbed before applying another.
Apply only to the skin surface and on intact skin. NOT to be administered by any other route.
Tapeworm infestation is certain to re-occur unless control of the intermediate hosts such as fleas, mice, etc. is undertaken.
Flea control: Flea infestations can be controlled by the regular use of effective flea control remedies.
Control of mice: If cats roam and hunt, contact with, and consumption of, mice and subsequent re-infestation with Taenia taeniaeformis is impossible to prevent.
It is recommended to re-apply Droncit Spot-On Tapewormer for Cats when signs of tapeworm infestation re-appear or at monthly intervals.
Do not use on cats weighing less than 1kg bodyweight.
Do not allow recently treated animals to groom each other.
Care should be taken to avoid the contents of the pipette coming into contact with the eyes or mouth of the recipient animal. For external use only.
Occasionally a transient local reaction such as scurf or mild exudation may be observed at the application site.
The product is bitter tasting and salivation may occasionally occur if the cat licks the application site immediately after treatment. This is not a sign of intoxication and disappears after a short time without treatment.
No incompatibility has been observed between this product at the recommended dose and a range of common veterinary treatments.
Overdosing can lead to slight skin reactions which disappear without treatment within a few days.
There are no contraindications for use during pregnancy and lactation.
Keep out of sight and reach of children and wash hands after use.
This product can be irritant to skin and eyes. Care should be taken to prevent contact of the solution with the skin, eyes or mouth.
