Drontal is the most popular brand of wormer - and is highly recommended for the control of all gastrointestinal worms in dogs including roundworm, hookworm, whipworm and tapeworm (including hydatid tapeworm) by veterinarians.
Drontal is a tablet formulation of three distinctly different proven drugs offering the broadest spectrum of activity. The febantel/pyrantel combination is active against roundworms and hookworms and is highly effective against whipworms. Praziquantel provides a superb level of efficiency against all the major tapeworms.

Puppy Liquid Suspension
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. This product does not control tapeworms or heartworm.
