The connection between fleas and worms, fleas are often infected wih a larval stage of the flea tapeworm, if your dog swallows an infected flea a worm may develop in the gut, which is a good reason to worm with Drontal Plus, and use a flea treatment at the same time.
A dog infected with worms may show some symptoms like irritation of the bottom, which may be a sign of tapeworm problems, dragging the bottom across the ground could be your dog's way of telling you their may be a problem. There are a few other signs such as: vomiting, a dull coat, a lack of vitality, perhaps they are off their food or a pot bellied appearance, which would be more common in puppies. If your dog is showing any behaviour you are not absolutely certain about we would suggest you contact your vet as soon as possible. However these signs are not always common, and in the early stages of infection possibly non existent, in fact dogs infected with worms may be showing no signs at all. This is why we suggest worming with products such as Drontal XL every three months.
Drontal XL tablets can be used on dogs 35kg and over. For dogs over 35kg use Drontal Plus at half a tablet for every 5kg over 35kg. .
