Tapeworming Made Easy
Spot-on use for external application to the skin. The cat should be accurately weighed prior to treatment to ensure that the correct tube size is used.
Remove one tube from package. Hold tube in upright position, twist and pull off cap and use the opposite end of the cap to break the seal.
Part the fur on the cat's neck at the base of the skull until skin is visible. Place the tip of the tube on the skin and squeeze firmly several times to empty the contents directly onto the skin. Application on the base of the skull will minimise the ability of the cat to lick the product off.
To minimise the possibility of run-off after application of more than one tube, it is advised that the applications should be performed slowly to allow absorption and that it may be advisable to allows the contents of the previous tube to be absorbed before applying another.
Apply only to the skin surface and on intact skin. NOT to be administered by any other route.
Tapeworm infestation is certain to re-occur unless control of the intermediate hosts such as fleas, mice, etc. is undertaken.
Flea control: Flea infestations can be controlled by the regular use of effective flea control remedies.
Control of mice: If cats roam and hunt, contact with, and consumption of, mice and subsequent re-infestation with Taenia taeniaeformis is impossible to prevent.
It is recommended to re-apply Droncit Spot-On Tapewormer for Cats when signs of tapeworm infestation re-appear or at monthly intervals.
Each tube contains 20 mg praziquantel with 0.5mg butylated hydroxytoluene.
Do not use on cats weighing less than 1 kg bodyweight.
