Dronspot Wormer for Small Cats
Dronspot is a spot on worming treatment for cats. Intestinal worms can easily be picked up by your cat from eating microscopic worm eggs from the environment, from hunting or from swallowing infected fleas when grooming. Kittens can even pick roundworms up from their mum when they suckle her milk.
Dronspot takes the stress out of the worming routine. It’s a simple treatment that is applied at least once every three months to keep worms at bay.
- Spot-on treatment for prevention and treatment of worms in cats
- Use once every 3 months to keep your cat worm free
- Easy application, no tablets.
Fleas can spread tapeworms via their eggs so it is recommended that you routinely treat your cat for fleas to break the cycle. A spot on treatment such as Advantage 40 will treat and prevent fleas for up to 4 weeks.
