Drontal Plus Reviews
My dog is very hard to shove a pill into his mouth. Sly and dodges, from the feed always finds and spits out. And only with Drontal plus, finally I sleep well. Thanks to the taste of the meat, Jim swallows the pill on his own and no problems. That would be all dog pills made for them tasty, but still not expensive.
Review number 2
I have been using Drontal plus for six years. I have no complaints, although I read on the Internet that it is poison and dogs are poisoned. It seems to me very important to comply with the dosage. If you give the dog exactly as much medicine as it should be according to its weight, then there will be no problems. And if you put pills into it for future use in order to “surely” get rid of worms, the consequences may be different.

Drontal well approached us, although the previous drug did not completely expel the worms. And after Drontal, I personally saw them myself. Now our girl is waiting for puppies and we, too, from the 21st day of the day will be stalking Drontal.
