How does Drontal work?

 Dogs can pick up intestinal worms by ingesting worm eggs from their environment, from hunting or even swallowing fleas. They can also spread from the mother to the puppies. Worms breed and thrive inside your dog, sometimes causing lethargy, diarrhoea, vomiting and weight loss, however, sometimes there can be no symptoms. So, worming at least every 3 months will help keep your furry friend healthy and reduce the number of worm eggs shed into the environment.

How is Drontal given?

For example, a repeat does after 14 days may be necessary in a situation where your dog has a flea problem as fleas can pass new tapeworm infestations onto your pet.
