  • Description

    Droncit is a prescription medication used to kill tapeworms in cats and applied as a topical solution to allow the active ingredient in the medication - Prazinquantel - to be absorbed into the bloodstream and then metabolized by the liver. Tapeworms exposed to the parasiticide are killed quickly and it is recommended to begin use with Droncit at the first sign of a tapeworm infection. For most cat owners the effectiveness of the medication is evaluated by looking for signs of eliminated tapeworms in the cat's stools.
