DESCRIPTION: Droncit® Feline Tablets are sized for easy oral administration to either adult cats or kittens. The tablets may be crumbled and mixed with the feed.

ACTION: Droncit® (praziquantel) is absorbed, metabolized in the liver and excreted in the bile. Upon entering the digestive tract from the bile, cestocidal activity is exhibited.1 Following exposure to praziquantel, the tapeworm loses its ability to resist digestion by the mammalian host. Because of this, whole tapeworms, including the scolex, are very rarely passed after administration of praziquantel. In many instances only disintegrated and partially digested pieces of tapeworms will be seen in the stool. The majority of tapeworms killed are digested and are not found in the feces.

INDICATIONS: Droncit® Feline Tablets are indicated for the removal of the following feline cestodes: Dipylidium caninum and Taenia taeniaeformis.

USE DIRECTIONS: Droncit® Feline 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:
