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* ||# of Tablets |
|4 lbs. and Under ||½ tablet |
|5-11 lbs. || 1 tablet |
|Over 11 lbs. ||1½ tablets |
|*Not intended for use in kittens less than 6 weeks of age. |
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.
