It is essential to weigh dogs before treatment.
For intestinal worms, Drontal is given as a single dose by mouth.

If worm problems persist, consult a veterinarian.
For Giardia infection: Administer the above dosage for three consecutive days. Drontal should only be used when a Giardia sp. Infection has been diagnosed by a veterinarian.
A single dose of Drontal is all that is required. Dogs in hydatid areas should be treated every 6 weeks to ensure that newly acquired hydatid tapeworms are expelled before reaching maturity.
Dogs & Puppies: Treat at 2, 4, 8 and 12 weeks and then every month until six months of age; thereafter every 3 months or on veterinary advice.
Pregnant bitches: Treat prior to mating, then 10 days before whelping and at 2 and 4 weeks after whelping.
Treat every three months except in hydatid tapeworm areas where every six weeks is recommended, or on veterinary advice. Dogs can become reinfested with worms and treatment should be repeated.
This protozoan parasite is found commonly in dogs and may be the cause of diarrhoea, particularly in pups. It is more common amongst dogs living in multi-dog households and kennels. Diagnosis of suspected Giardia infection should be confirmed by a veterinary surgeon.
Worms often reinfest dogs so it is necessary to:
Follow the retreatment recommendations below:
Puppies Treat at 2, 4, 8, 12 weeks; then 4, 5, 6 months of age
Adults Treat every 3 months; every 6 weeks in Hydatid infested locations
Pregnant/lactating Treat prior to mating, 10 days before whelping and at 2 and 4 weeks after whelping
Drontal may be combined with other treatments, for example heartworm prevention, flea or tick treatment.
