FAQs

How does Drontal® Plus work?

The unique combination of ingredients in Drontal® Plus attack the worms in the dog’s intestinal tract. When administered to a dog, the active ingredients concentrate in the intestines, coming into direct contact with the worms. The worms will disintegrate, break apart or become paralyzed and then be expelled in the dog’s stool.
