D+ 30 round white pill for dogs

I found a pill bottle from the vet and it has 2 pills in it. They are round and white with D+ above the break and 30 below it. I'm just trying to figure out what it was prescribed for. I've looked it up a few different ways, but can't find anything. Thanks in advance for your help! ## It’s drontal which is for worms such as hookworm and tape worms. ## Hello Faaron, As Jen said I looked up the pill and it comes up as Drontal + which is a medication used to treat worms. I just wanted to add a bit of information that I picked up from my research. It also goes by the name Praziquantel. The dosages are determined by the weight of the animal and should always be administered with food, below is a list. 2-4 lbs - half of one tablet 5-7 lbs - one tablet 13-18 lbs - two tablets...

Yellow heart shaped tablet from the vet with an R

I have a puppy weighing 2.5 pounds and was given a triwormer that they say is Drontal. It looks like a heart shape that was scored in half but has an "R" imprinted, pale yellow in color. ## Hello Cindy, I did just a bit of research on the pill you described and I found a Drontal pill that is a freeform bone shapped pill with a score in the middle. I can see how the bone shape looks like two hearts, is that what you're describing or is it a heart shape with a score down the middle of the heart? Here is some addition info I sourced from the NIH. NDC: 0859-2180 Active Ingredients: Praziquantel 22.7mg Pyrantel Pamoate 22.7mg Febantel 113.4mg Color:Brown Score: 2 Shape: Freeform (Bone) Size: 20mm Let me know if this is what you were describing. If not I can continue my search.

white pill no23 round

I found this small round white pill with no 23 in the bottom of my purse. Can't remember what it is, can anyone help. ## Hello Jodi, Is the number 23 the only imprint that is on the pill? If so then I was able to identify the pill. I believe what you have is a Praziquantel 23 MG Oral Tablet. According to the National Institute of Health this medication is used to treat worms, specifically Schistosoma worms. Here is some additional information I was able to source from the NIH on this pill. NDC: 0859-2397 Imprint: 23 Manufacturer: Bayer HealthCare, LLC Animal Health Division Color(s): White Shape: Round Size (mm): 10.00 Score: 2 If there is something else imprinted on the pill let me know and I will revise my post to what you have. If you have any further questions feel free to ask.

white pill T4 scored PS back

praziquantel ## above it is noted that that pill is animal praziquantal and there is then a post saying dose could be 600mg pill. That is impossible. Pills are either 34 mg or 23mg. Just thought that should be corrected. I was looking at this post because a client found a pill like that in an old envelope labeled 34mg droncit.

light yellow pill With Cross D 8

The pills were for my cat via the vet. The pills have break lines to break in half or 1/4 (this is the cross). In the upper left of the cross is a D. In the lower right of the cross is a 8. There are all kinds of websites that dont recognize a D and 8. ## The reason they can't identify it for you is because this is a veterinary medication. Prescription medication databases only log medications for human use, the FDA does not require imprints to be logged for medications that are manufactured solely for animal use. The pill in question is called Drontal, it contains the active ingredients praziquantel and pyrantel, it used to treat or prevent several types of worms in cats. Is there anything else I can help with? ## You nailed it Verwon ! Remembering back... yes I did go through a de...
