Drontal Suspension is recommended for the control of gastrointestinal worms in puppies and small dogs including:
Drontal Suspension contains two distinctly different active ingredients. The febantel/pyrantel combination is active against hookworms and roundworms. Febantel alone is highly effective against whipworm. Hookworms and roundworms may infect puppies while still in the mother’s womb (roundworm) or as soon as they suckle milk (hookworm and roundworm). Therefore effective control of these parasites is essential.
