The German company "Bayer" in their line of Anthelmintics has developed a special "Drontal" for cats. It consists of the active ingredients praziquantel and Pyrantel-embonate, effective against round and tapeworms. One tablet of "Drontal" is designed for 4 kg weight of the animal.
Weigh your cat. The easiest way would be to do as follows: take the animal in hand and stand on the scale. Note the figure, and then weigh without the cat. Subtract the second result from the first, and you will learn a lot animal. Weigh the cat so much easier than trying to hold it on the scales.
Do not give the cat the pill on an empty stomach – it is a strong irritant to the intestine. For successful deworming is absolutely not important, will be given tablets to the animal before or after a meal.
Calculate the required quantity of the drug, based on the weight of the animal. "Drontal" has an unpleasant taste, so it is not necessary to pound the pill with water. Take the cat on hand (if necessary, ask someone from home to help you), open her mouth and put the pill on the tongue of the animal. Put your her face up and stroke the throat – this will help to trigger the swallowing reflex.
Grind the pills and mix it with any delicacy. Use a special canned food for cats, as they have a strong odor and taste. If you mix the pill with the usual food you give the cat each day, the animal may simply refuse food.
Deworming should be carried out regularly. If your cats don't tend to seek out meals on the street or to explore the contents of your garbage can, two or three times a year will suffice. If you plan to knit an animal, it is necessary to carry out deworming in the ten days before that.
Some helminth parasites in cats can be transmitted to man. It is therefore useful to conduct deworming not only the cat but also your family members.
