How often should you give meds to a dog with worms?
What type of worms does your dog have? Do you have him protected against heartworm? Tapeworm is only one type of worm that a dog can get. It is also transmittable to humans. Roundworm is another type of worm. Each require different types of treatment. With tapeworm you can see small white worms actually swimming in the feces of the animal. It can be stubborn to treat. If the dog has fleas no amount of de worming may help, as the dog gets these worms from ingesting the flea larvae and can keep getting it again and again until the fleas are gone. The best thing to do is call a vet on the phone atleast who will make the best recommendations. Ask around to find the least expensive place if you do take the pet in for observation. The vet can tell you how to treat over the counter next time perhaps. Also some pet store owners are pretty knowledgable about these things. Hold onto the receipt for the worm treatment so you can get your money back if you take your dog in for treatment. Luckily there are treatments for all these things available and once gone stay gone for good with proper precautions. Good luck! : )
Most medications are given once every 2-3 weeks.. until there is no evidence left of infestation: However, it really does depend on the type of worms, the severity of the infestation, and the type of medication being used.... You may be medicating your dog as often as once or twice a day or as little as once every 3 months..... Please consult your vet to determine what the best course of treatment would be for your individual situation..... NEVER self medicate an animal unless directed to do so by your vet....
Because the mess to treat roundworm only affects the worms that are fully grown, repeat treatment is necessary to get rid of the maturing larvae. How quickly the roundworms grow up (and therefore how often the medicine needs to be given) depends on the type and age of the animal, and how to disease was contracted. The worms can be seen clearly under a microscope, like at a veterinarian's office, so your vet will know…
"Meds" is short for medications. You hear this abbreviation in medical situations like hospitals, pharmacies, and doctors' offices. Here are some sentences. What meds are you taking? This patient is on way too many meds! We need to give her meds on time while she's in the hospital. He hasn't been taking his meds correctly.
Give her a worm shot at the doctors and they might go away - think about if you have ever given her human food - dogs can`t have too much or worms may appear. I'd take it to the Vet for a dewormer. Sounds like tapeworms, which are actually cause from ingesting fleas infected with the parasite. Can't get OTC meds for it. Has to see a Vet
My cat who I love more then the world has worms I can not afford the vet for another month but I hear over the counter meds are bad what should I do?
Is there a home remedy to kill worms in dogs if you live in the Philippines and are over 100 miles away from a vet?
There is no home remedy, however you can get pet medication on the internet delivered to your home. Since we know you have internet access, try Google "Pet Meds" and place an order there. It should be in your hands in under a week. Actually, the NATURAL remedy (which could be considered a home remedy) for worms is crushed white pumpkin seeds. Don't grind them to powder, just crush them until they are small shards…
Intuniv is packaged as a time-released medication. That means the tablet must be intact, or the entire 24 hours worth of meds will dissolve very quickly -- you'll get a large dose of the meds right away, followed by 23 hours of no meds. As with all time-released meds, you should not cut, chew, or crush an Intuniv tablet.
