Are Drontal worming tablets effective?

I want to ensure that Drontal worming tablets will kill and prevent my pets from getting worms.

Drontal works on several different types of worms including tapeworms, roundworms and hookworms in cats and in dogs all those same types of worms plus whipworms. It has always cleared up worm infections for my rescued pets. You need the right weight of your pet to give the right dose.

Yes, they are a trusted brand of worming tablet. I have used them on my puppies and have never had a problem.

I have used them on my dogs in the past and never had an issue with worms. The way to check is to make sure any wormer you use covers round worm, hook worm, whip worm and tape worm. Tape worm is the one most often left out and require a seperate tablet. Drontal includes all 4.

Drontal worming tablets are effective against some types of worms but not all. Some areas of the country are also seeing resistance to some deworming medications.
