Drontal® for cats is a broad-spectrum anthelmintic drug that contains the active substances praziquantel, a pyrazinisoquinolone derivative, and pyrantel embonate, a tetrahydropyrimidine derivative.
Praziquantel is rapidly absorbed by the outer shell of tapeworms, resulting in damage and contraction. The consequence of violation of the penetrating properties of membranes is paralysis of parasites.
Pyrantel acts as a cholinergic antagonist, causing spastic paralysis of roundworms by depolarizing neuromuscular blockade.
