pro rata

The tablets are administered by opening the animal's mouth and pushing the tablet over the back of the tongue so that it cannot be rejected. Alternatively, a tablet can be wrapped in a piece of meat or butter and offered to the animal or crushed and mixed with the food.

A single dose is all that is required. However, for dogs in rural areas and for packs of hounds this dose should be repeated every six weeks to ensure that newly acquired tapeworms are destroyed before reaching maturity. Dosing must be associated with strict control of the dog's diet to ensure that uncooked offal is not eaten.

Use during pregnancy and lactation

The product may be administered to pregnant females. It is safe to the female herself, to the unborn foetus and to the newborn young.


Droncit should not be administered to unweaned puppies and kittens, as such animals are rarely infected with tapeworms.

Do not administer to dogs weighing less than 2.5 kg.

In the interests of good hygiene, persons administering the tablets directly to the animal, or by adding them to the animal's food, should wash their hands afterwards.

Pharmaceutical Precautions

Do not store above 25°C.

Store in a dry place.

Any part-used tablets should be discarded.

Any unused product or waste material should be disposed of in accordance with national requirements
