I recently picked up some Drontal 22.7 mg tabs from my vet. The pills are bigger than what I remember. After an exhaustive google search all I can find is that there are 3 strengths of Drontal on the market... How do i know my vet didn't give me the wrong tablet? The tablets do have are marked on one side "H" with a score line and a "12". They are round and a pale yellow colour.

I am a pharmacist so I find it strange that there is no information on the Bayer website indicating the difference between the 3 strengths in terms of physical appearance. For medications for human use... A medication which is available in multiple strengths will have different colours/markings.

I do not want to give my small dog that is possibly intended for a heavier dog.

Can anyone out there help my ID the Drontal tablets?

Take them back into the vet tomorrow morning and mention you are unsure this is the right dosage, and could they please check to make sure.
