    w worm our girls every month with a smaller dosage, as my mum doesn't want to take any chances. as far as im awarer i have herd that the vets are still discussing whether it should be month or every 3 months.

    this is from my drontal plus packet I got for my puppy,
    Puppies and Small Dogs: 1/2 - 2kg body weight = 1/4 tablet.
    3kg -5kg body weight = 1/4 tablet.
    6kg - 10kg. body weight = 1 tablet.

    Hope this helps you. good job I kept my box and instructions eh!.

    This is the roundworm and tapewormer for dogs and puppies.
