Droncit 34

Canine Cestocide Tablets

Droncit (praziquantel) Canine Cestocide Tablets - Bayer are indicated for the removal of the following canine cestodes: Dipylidium caninum, Taenia pisiformis, Echinococcus granulosus and for the removal and control of Echinococcus multilocularis.

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. 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 are digested and are not found in the feces.

Dosage and Directions:

Droncit 34 tablets are sized for easy oral administration to either adult dogs or puppies. The tablets may be crumbled and mixed with the feed.

Droncit (praziquantel) Canine Cestocide 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 for dogs and puppies:

  • 5 lbs and under . . . 0.5 tablet
  • 6-10 lbs . . . 1 tablet
  • 11-15 lbs . . . 1.5 tablets
  • 16-30 lbs . . . 2 tablets
  • 31-45 lbs . . . 3 tablets
  • 46-60 lbs . . . 4 tablets
  • Over 60 lbs . . . 5 tablets max
Not intended for use in puppies less than 4 weeks of age.

Fasting: The recommended dosage of praziquantel is not affected by the presence or absence of food in the gastrointestinal tract, therefore, FASTING IS NEITHER NECESSARY NOR RECOMMENDED.

Retreatment: For those animals living where reinfections are likely to occur, clients should be instructed in the steps to optimize prevention, otherwise, retreatment may be necessary. This is true in cases of Dipylidium caninum where reinfection is almost certain to occur if fleas are not removed from the animal and its environment. In addition, for control of Echinococcus multilocularis, a program of regular treatment every 21 to 26 days may be indicated.

Precautions and Contraindications:
There are no known contraindications to the use of praziquantel in dogs.

Droncit (praziquantel) has been tested in breeding and pregnant dogs. No adverse effects were noted.

Keep out of the reach of children. Not for human use.
