Praziquantel/ Pyrantel Pamoate Compound is a parasite-control drug with strong activity against a number of different worms. It combines two active ingredients: praziquantel and pyrantel pamoate. Praziquantel treats tapeworms. It impairs the function of the tapeworm's sucker and stimulates movement of the worm. This dislodges the parasite's attachment to the intestinal tract and allows it to be eliminated in the feces. Pyrantel pamoate treats hookworms, small intestinal roundworms, and stomach worms in dogs.
Praziquantel/ Pyrantel Pamoate Compound requires a prescription from your veterinarian. It is available as an oral suspension.
