Drontal Puppy Wormer 30mlDrontal Worming Suspension is reccomended for the control of gastrointestinal worms in puppies and small dogs including Roundworm, Hookworm, Whipworm. This product does not control Tapeworms or heartworms.
Roundworms and Hookworms:
These parasites infect puppies while still in the mother's womb or as soon as they suckle the milk. Hookworms are bloodsuckers and in large numbers are capable of causing anaemia and death, particularly in puppies.
Due to the life cycle of these worms it is important to treat puppies frequently until at least 12 weeks of age. Both worms can also infect dogs of any age by ingestion of worm eggs and larvae can also penetrate through the skin.
To reduce general environment contamination by eggs and larvae from the bitch during pregnancy, pregnant bitches should be treated routinely prior to mating, and at the end of pregnancy and during lactation.
This parasite lives in the large intestine and is transmitted by the eggs, passed onto the ground by one dog, being ingested by another dog. The eggs are extremely resistant and long lasting. It is important to treat every 6-8 weeks after 3 months of age to prevent re-infestation.
Worms often re-infest pups so it is necessary to treat the puppy itself and all other contact dogs, reduce environmental contamination by daily disposal of droppings.
