Droncit Feline Cestocide Tablets

Feline Tapeworm Tablets


Bayer Droncit Feline Cestocide Tablets are indicated for the removal of the feline tapeworms: Dipylidium caninum and Taenia taeniaeformis. Tablets are sized for easy oral administration to either adult cats or kittens. The tablets may be crumbled and mixed with the feed.

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 killed are digested and are not found in the feces.


Droncit Feline Tablets may be administered directly by mouth 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:

Cats and Kittens (6 weeks of age and older)

  • 4 lbs & under: 1/2 tablet
  • 5-11 lbs: 1 tablet
  • Over 11 lbs: 1 1/2 tablets
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.

For those animals maintained on premises where reinfections are likely to occur, clients should be instructed in the steps necessary to prevent reinfection; otherwise, retreatment may be necessary. This is especially true in cases of Dipylidium caninum infections where reinfection is almost certain to occur if fleas are not removed from the animal and its environment.

The safety index has been derived from controlled safety evaluations, clinical trials and prior approved use in foreign countries. Dosages of 5 times the labeled rate at 14 day intervals to cats as young as 5 weeks did not produce clinical signs of toxicity. No significant clinical chemistry, hematological, or Histopathological changes occurred. Symptoms of gross overdosage include vomiting, salivation, diarrhea and depression.

There are no known contraindications to the use of praziquantel in cats.

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

Federal (U.S.A.) Law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian
