Product Summary:


What is Droncit?
Droncit is a prescription wormer and internal parasite medication for cats and dogs, used to control tapeworms. "Wormer" is a term that describes medications used to treat internal parasitic infections, usually of the digestive tract.

Droncit tablets remove tapeworms from dogs and cats. Droncit is a wormer with a single ingredient, praziquantel. Praziquantel is an FDA-approved oral medication that treats infestations from multiple species of tapeworm, including Dipyldium caninum in dogs and cats. Droncit treats infestations from Taenia taeniaformis in cats, and Taenia pisiformis in dogs. This prescription wormer is also indicated for the removal of multiple Echinococcus species. For dogs, each tablet contains 34 mg of praziquantel, while for cats each tablet contains 23 mg.


How does Droncit work?
Droncit contains praziquantel. Following ingestion of praziquantel, the tapeworm loses its ability to attach to the pet's intestines, thus causing the parasite to be digested and eliminated.


Is there a generic equivalent available?
Yes, as a branded, nonprescription wormer: Tradewinds Tapeworm Tabs.


How is it given?
Droncit tablets are given by mouth. Tablets may be crumbled and mixed with a small amount of food. This should be eaten before the pet receives the remainder of the meal to ensure the entire amount of medication is ingested. Fasting is neither necessary nor recommended.


Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian.


This medication should only be given to the pet for whom it was prescribed.


What results can I expect?
Droncit will quickly kill the adult tapeworms present in the animal's intestine. It will not prevent reinfection. In most cases, you will not see the entire worm being passed as it is generally digested.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian while considering Droncit?
Talk to your veterinarian about the steps necessary to prevent your pet from becoming reinfected with tapeworms.


Notify your veterinarian of any other medications or supplements your pet is taking, and also if your pet has had any reactions to previous medications.


What should I do if I miss a dose?
In most cases only one dose of Droncit is needed, however if re-exposure is likely, your pet may be placed on a regular deworming schedule. If you do miss a dose, give it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to the regular schedule. Do not give two doses at once.


What is the most important information I should know?
You should understand what steps you can take to prevent reinfection of your pet.


Who should not take it?
Not for use in animals who are hypersensitive (allergic) to it.


What side effects may be seen when taking Droncit?
Side effects are rare, but may include drooling, vomiting, loss of appetite, diarrhea, lethargy, or staggering.


How is it stored?
Store at room temperature in a tight, light-resistant, childproof container. Keep out of reach of children and pets.


What should I do if I know of or suspect there has been an overdose?
If you know or suspect your pet has had an overdose, contact your veterinarian immediately.

What should I avoid when giving my pet Droncit?
Consult your veterinarian before using praziquantel with any other medications, including vitamins and supplements, and other wormers, since interactions may occur
