What is Droncit?
Droncit is a prescription wormer and internal parasite medication for cats and dogs, used to control tapeworms. "Wormer" is a term that describes medications used to treat internal parasitic infections, usually of the digestive tract.

Who is it for?
Droncit is available for dogs over 4 weeks of age and cats over 6 weeks of age. Droncit is safe to use in pregnant dogs and cats.

What are the benefits?

* Prescription single ingredient wormer for tapeworms
* Controls tapeworms transmitted by fleas
* Easy to administer tablet in separate sizes for dogs and cats

Droncit tablets remove tapeworms from dogs and cats. Droncit is a wormer with a single ingredient, praziquantel. Praziquantel is an FDA-approved oral medication that treats infestations from multiple species of tapeworm, including Dipyldium caninum in dogs and cats. Droncit treats infestations from Taenia taeniaformis in cats, and Taenia pisiformis in dogs. This prescription wormer is also indicated for the removal of multiple Echinococcus species. For dogs, each tablet contains 34 mg of praziquantel, while for cats each tablet contains 23 mg.

How does Droncit work?
Droncit contains praziquantel. Following ingestion of praziquantel, the tapeworm loses its ability to attach to the pet's intestines, thus causing the parasite to be digested and eliminated.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
Yes, as a branded, nonprescription wormer: Tradewinds Tapeworm Tabs.

How is it given?
Droncit tablets are given by mouth. Tablets may be crumbled and mixed with a small amount of food. This should be eaten before the pet receives the remainder of the meal to ensure the entire amount of medication is ingested. Fasting is neither necessary nor recommended.

Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian.

This medication should only be given to the pet for whom it was prescribed.

What results can I expect?
Droncit will quickly kill the adult tapeworms present in the animal's intestine. It will not prevent reinfection. In most cases, you will not see the entire worm being passed as it is generally digested.
