Drontal tablets will remove tapeworms Dipylidium caninum, Taenia taeniaeformis, hookworms Ancylostoma tubaeforme, and large roundworms Toxocara cati from cats and kittens.
Large roundworms and hookworms may be observed in the feces of the cat a day or so after the cat has been treated with Drontal Tablets. The majority of tapeworms, however, are digested and are not found in the feces after treatment.
