    Did you know intestinal worms are a common problem in cats? Many cats show little, if any, signs of infection. Left untreated worms steal important nutrients from your cat and can have serious health complications for you and your family. Use Dronspot Spot-On solution for cats to kill all intestinal worms commonly found in UK cats.
    Dronspot is suitable for cats and kittens from 8 weeks of age and over 0.5kg bodyweight.

  • Spot-on use for external application to the skin. The cat should be accurately weighed prior to treatment to ensure that the correct pipette size is used.
    To apply, remove one pipette from package. Hold pipette in upright position, twist and pull off cap and use the opposite end of the cap to break the seal.

    Part the fur on the cat’s neck at the base of the skull until skin is visible. Place the tip of the pipette on the skin and squeeze firmly several times to empty the contents directly onto the skin. Application on the base of the skull will minimise the ability of the cat to lick the product off.

    Apply only to the skin surface and on intact skin. NOT to be administered by any other route.

  • Most cats in the UK should be wormed monthly*

    Cats' exposure to intestinal worms will depend on their home environment and lifestyle such as scavenging, hunting, and spending time outdoors. Recent research has shown that the majority of cats in the UK should be wormed monthly*, however there may be situations where less frequent treatment is required.

    • Even if your cat never sets foot outside, they can still be at risk from worms. If your cat ingests a flea (which can carry worm eggs) when grooming, they can become infected with worms. It is also worth noting that if you have multiple pets in the household, there is also risk that they may bring home unwanted parasites.

    • Dronspot kills every type of intestinal worm commonly found in UK cats, including:

      • Roundworms (Toxocara cati and Toxascaris leonina)
      • Tapeworms (Dipylidium caninum, Echinococcus multilocularis, and Taenia taeniaeformis)
      • Hookworm (Ancylostoma tubaeforme)

       

    • As with all medicines, side effects are possible. Drooling and vomiting may occur in very rare cases. Mild and transient neurological signs such as wobbliness or tremor may occur in very rare cases - these effects are thought to occur as a result of the cat licking the area where the drops have been applied after treatment. In very rare cases where the drops have been applied, hair loss or irritation may occur.

      If you notice any adverse signs as mentioned above or other signs that concern you after using Dronspot, please speak to your vet.

    • Yes, some worms can also cause disease in people. Regular worming of our pets will help to reduce the chance of these parasites being accidentally ingested by people. People who are particularly at risk include pregnant women, babies, toddlers and immunocompromised individuals such as the elderly, diabetics and people with HIV-infection.†

      People can also become infected with an intermediate stage of some species of tapeworm if they swallow tapeworm eggs. It’s even possible (though uncommon) for people to develop a tapeworm infection if they swallow an infected flea.

    • Most of the time you can’t tell if your cat has worms as symptoms can be extremely difficult to spot, but that doesn't mean there aren’t still warning signs to look out for. These symptoms can include diarrhoea and vomiting, though these can be seen with many other conditions as well. You can also check your cat’s stool or vomit, as you might see spaghetti-like worms or rice-like segments around their bottom. Weight loss, lethargy and a bloated belly, are also a possibility, especially in kittens. If your cat shows any of the signs mentioned you should contact your vet for advice.

    • Even though a low level of infection may not show any signs, as you can imagine it’s not ideal to have parasitic worms living in your cat's gut. It’s important to remember that worms can cause disease in people too, so regular worming of pets will give you peace of mind that you are helping keep these unwanted visitors away from your cat and family.

    • Unfortunately, no, you can’t completely stop your cat coming into contact with worms. However, using Dronspot wormer regularly will help them combat every type of common intestinal worm found in UK cats.
