Cantel general information

What is Cantel used for?

Cantel tablets are used as a multi spectrum de-wormer for dogs, and are suitable for adult dogs and puppies. Cantel tablets are effective in the control of 11 gastrointestinal worms, including roundworm (Toxicara), hookworm and whipworm. They are also effective against intestinal tapeworms (cestodes), particularly the Taenia species and including the hyatid, which is the cyst stage of the tapeworm. Cantel tablets can also be used in combination with other treatments such as medications for the prevention of heartworm, fleas and ticks.

How does Cantel work?

Cantel tablets contain a combination of three anthelmintic drugs, which is a drug that dispels parasitic worms (helminths). Praziquantel in Cantel tablets is an anthelmintic that is effective against intestinal tapeworms (cestodes) and works by interfering with the tapeworm’s ability to protect itself against its host, causing the tapeworm to lose resistance to digestion by the host digestive enzymes. The tapeworm becomes disintegrated and is then removed by the host’s immune system, which destroys the tapeworm before it can be passed out in stools. Pyrantel and oxantel Cantel tablets are depolarising neuromuscular blocking agents that are effective against roundworms and hookworms that attach to the wall of the host’s intestine by small teeth or suckers. They work by blocking nerve transmission causing sudden muscular contraction followed by paralysis. This causes the worm to lose its grip on the intestine wall and fall off; it then becomes paralysed and dies and is passed out in the stools. Although these drugs are effective against parasitic worms in the intestine, they are not well absorbed into the blood of the host and therefore have minimal side effects.
