Despite trying several other products before Bayer Drontal Broad Spectrum Dewormer, the worms wouldn’t disappear. Just 24 hours after treating my two cats with this the first time the worms were gone!
I was initially a little hesitant because of the price since there are cheaper alternatives. After seeing how quickly my cats became visibly better I knew it was worth it.
My cats are both young, about 2 years old, and they were clearly miserable. They were not their usual playful selves and one of them even had begun to vomit frequently.
I also started to notice their litter box smelled worse than normal. As soon as I figured out what was going on, I set about trying to get rid of the worms.
I regret wasting money on some of the other, cheaper products on the market. If I could go back, I would have started with the Bayer Drontal treatment.
It would have saved myself some money and my cats some discomfort.
Another plus point is that there were plenty of pills left over in case this happens again. The expiry date is a full two years away, so we are set for a while. You get a huge 50 pills in a package.
One tablet for every 4-8 pounds they weigh is sufficient. You will more than likely be giving two or three to each cat every time you need to give them a dose.
Why it’s so great
My favorite thing about this product is that it treats tapeworms, roundworms and hookworms. I liked knowing that it would take care of any worm that was bugging my kitties.
It’s active ingredients are praziquantel and pyrantel pamoate. These work in combination to starve and paralyze all worm variants living in your cats’ digestive tract. Neither of my cats had any negative side effects from this deworming medication, but that’s never a guarantee.
The only real drawback to this product was the instruction explicitly say to administer orally. It didn’t mention crushing them up and mixing them with food.
If this comes up again, I may see if mixing it into some wet food is just as effective.
It was all worth it in the end though when the worms had been taken care of once and for all.
