A single dose is all that is required. However, for dogs in rural areas and for packs of hounds this dose should be repeated every six weeks to ensure that newly acquired tapeworms are destroyed before reaching maturity. Dosing must be associated with strict control of the dog's diet to ensure that uncooked offal is not eaten.
Droncit should not be administered to unweaned puppies and kittens, as such animals are rarely infected with tapeworms.
Do not administer to dogs weighing less than 2.5 kg.
In the interests of good hygiene, persons administering the tablets directly to the animal, or by adding them to the animal's food, should wash their hands afterward.
