Generic Droncit Tapeworm Tabs for Dogs & Puppies
Information About Generic Droncit Tapeworm Tabs for Dogs & Puppies
Tapeworm infection is one of the most common internal parasite problems actually observed by dog owners. The presence of tapeworms is indicated by the presence of whitish rice-like tapeworm segments passed with the feces. Segments may also be found on the hair around the anus of the animal, or occasionally on the animal's bedding. Dogs become infected with tapeworms after eating fleas, rabbits or hares which are infected with tapeworm larvae. Generic Droncit tapeworm tablets will remove the common tapeworms, Dipylidium caninum and Taenia taeniaeformis, from dogs and puppies.
Generic Droncit Tapeworm Tabs for Dogs & Puppies are sized for easy oral administration to either adult dogs or puppies. The tablets may be given directly in the mouth or crumbled and mixed with the food. The product is safe for use in puppies from 4 weeks of age. Generic Droncit Tapeworm Tabs contain the same ingredient, praziquantel, as the original branded product, so you can be sure when you use this product that it will be safe and effective in treating your pet's worm problems, but at a price which will not hurt your wallet.

Dosage and Administration
Generic Droncit may be administered directly into the mouth or crumbled and mixed with the feed. If all of the tablet(s) is/are not eaten, Generic Droncit may not remove all tapeworms. 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 for dogs and puppies:
|Animal weight||Tablet dose|
|5lbs and under||? tablet|
|over 60lbs||5 tablets|
The recommended dosage of praziquantel is not affected by the presence or absence of food in the gastrointestinal tract. It is not necessary to fast animals prior to administration of Generic Droncit.
For those animals maintained on premises where reinfections are likely to occur, steps should be taken to prevent reinfection; otherwise, retreatment may be necessary. In flea tapeworm (Dipylidium caninum) infections, reinfection is almost certain to occur if fleas are not removed from the animal and its environment.
Warnings, Side Effects and Drug Interactions
Generic Droncit is not intended for use in puppies less than 4 weeks of age. Consult your veterinarian before administering tablets to weak or debilitated animals. Praziquantel has been tested in breeding and pregnant dogs and found to be safe. On rare occasions, mild vomiting, anorexia, lethargy, salivation or diarrhea have been seen in association with use of this drug.
