Drontal puppy oral suspension for puppies is a great easy to use product to control roundsworms in younger dogs. Recommended dosage is a single dose every 2 weeks up to 12 weeks of age.
Drontal Puppy Suspension is super easy to give, the dose is 1ml per kg of the puppys weight, given as a single dose. How to give it. It’s up to you! You can either give this super tasty formula straight into your puppies mouth with the syringe provided and in the process hopefully avoid worming yourself or staining your clothes or you can add to the puppy’s food.
To avoid having a sick puppy and vet’s bills you should worm your new bundle of joy every two weeks up to 12 weeks of age, then monthly to six months. This tasty product treats those nasty roundworms that your puppy’s mum has given him as a present from the milk or these roundworms can come from you puppies doggy friends. When your puppy gets a bit older and has chewed you out of house and kennel it’s time to move onto drontal tablets.
There are 4 common ways your dog can pick up intestinal worms:
1. By swallowing infected fleas while grooming
2. By ingesting worm eggs from a contaminated environment (toys, grass, soil, etc.)
3. By eating or scavenging carcasses of other infected animals (mice, rabbits, birds, etc.)
4. From the mother to her puppies, either across the placenta before they are born, or via her milk when nursing
You shouldn’t wait until you start seeing signs of worms as infections have to be quite severe before signs let you know there is a problem. Signs of worms can include weight loss, bloated tummy, diarrhoea, vomiting and scooting bottom along the ground but these are not specific to worm infections. Worm eggs are microscopic, but you might see worms (looking like spaghetti) or worm segments (looking like grains of rice) in your dog's stool or around their bottom.
Yes. People can get infected by some worm eggs present on their dog's fur or in the environment, which can cause serious diseases. Roundworm larvae can travel through the body and cause blindness in severe cases, especially in children. That is why it’s important to deworm your dog regularly, even if you can’t see any worms or your dog looks healthy. Regular deworming of your dog can help reduce the chance of this happening and help you protect your whole family.
No. Your dog can pick up worms at any time throughout the year. Worm eggs can survive in the environment for several years and infect your dog anywhere they explore.
It’s important that you don’t wait to see signs of worms or ill health before you worm your dog, and regular worming is part of responsible dog ownership to protect your pet, yourself and others. But how often you should worm will depend on a number of different factors.
Experts recommend treating dogs for intestinal worms at least four times a year. However, more frequent treatment may be required in certain cases, for example, if you have children, if there are pregnant women, elderly or immunosuppressed individuals in the home or if your dog has had fleas.
Always follow the advice of your pet healthcare professional who can recommend the adequate frequency for your dog’s circumstances.
