Question

How long to wait before you use it again

we rescued my dog arround valentines day and she had worms when she came to us. we gave her the pouches and it quickly solved the problem. but 2 weeks in we ran into trouble with our building manager about her breed and so sent her to stay at the rescue where we got her until we could settle this issue and bring her home. I brought her back about a week ago and am now noticing that she has the same worms again ( white and short) I am wondering if it is safe to get this product for her again so soon or if there is a waiting period and if so, is there a different way we can help her?

I am looking for the answer to this question as well, and the person who gave the best answer below I believe failed to tell you the amount of days to wait in between. My dog had whipworms she got from the dog hotel I believe, but she had a little mucus and blood in her stool. Anyway, I gave her two one gram packages in her food every day for three days. Two one gram packages because she is between 10 and 20 pounds. But I am pretty sure that I now wait two weeks and then do that again. Two one gram packages in her food for three consecutive days again to kill any eggs that may have made it through the process the first time. The other guy is right that worms or pieces of worms can come out after, but this sounds like reinfestation and those little white worms crawling on the dog's butt you cannot mistake for these dead pieces of worms.

What you are seeing are segments of tapeworm that break off into the stool or sometimes seen on the rear end. Praziquantel is the best treatment also known as Drontal or Droncit. You will need to see your Vet to get some.

Generally the various packages recommend worming 3 times to ensure that all hatching eggs are also eliminated. Vets then recommend waiting at least 60 days before completing another round of worm medication. Keep in mind that worms come from dogs smelling other dogs feces, sharing bowls, etc. and from being attacked by worm-larvae carrying fleas, etc. Once you get your pit wormed again this time, if she is not exposed to these again, you should be fine. Also keep in mind that feeding a high-quality, non-grain diet and food-grade meats will help her immune system fight off all sorts of problems. I recommend the Nature's Recipe line from Petco as a great start. Add their Salmon Oil for missing Omega 3's.

The box says 'up to' 10 lbs use 1 gram per day for 3 days. and ' If your dog's weight is in between the suggested dosing sizes, it is safe to use the next higher size'

Dosing Table
Dog Weight (lbs) Packet Size
Up to 10 1 gram
11-20 2 gram
21-30* 1 gram + 2 gram
31-40 4 gram
41-50* 1 gram + 4 gram
51-60* 2 gram + 4 gram
61-80* Two 4 gram
Over 80* *Combine pouches to obtain recommended daily dosage

"Each treatment requires wormer be given once daily for 3 consecutive days according to specified weight. Each package contains 3 packets, enough for 3 daily treatments. Simply mix granules with food. Please combine doses for dogs up to 30 lbs. or over 40 lbs. Safe for puppies 6 weeks or older and pregnant dogs.

Packet size is the daily dose. The dog must be treated with this dose for 3 days in a row.

Weigh your dog to make sure you are using the right size and number of packets. If your dog's weight is in between the suggested dosing sizes, it is safe to use the next higher size. For example, an 11-pound dog should be treated with the 2-gram packet."

Hi,

we have a 2.5lbs chihuahua. I was also concerned about the weight. I called the number on the package before I attempted to give it to her and the "vet" from their customer services, stated to give my 5lbs dogs the full pouch each time for three days and to give our little 2.5lbs chihuahua , half a pouch for three days. We just finished the treatment about three days ago and so far we have not seen any side effects and she took it well with no issues at all. I have not seen any worms pass in the stool but i am also not breaking up the stool to check so I am assuming if she did have worms, it would have worked. hope this helps.

I REALLY wouldn't recommend doing that! Small dogs are the most likely to be negatively affected by an over-treatment of flea/wormer/ etc. type medications. Additionally, unless you're a pharmacist, you could be dividing the package incorrectly. I'd hate to see you lose your precious small pup, so you need to find a product that is designed only for very small dogs. Since your chihuahua is only 3 pounds, it doesn't have a lot of body weight to clear out toxins with. Simply because it is so very small, you may be well-served to get your vet's recommendation first, then look for equivalent products at the best price.

Yes for Mom, puppies need to be at least 6 weeks old. Always worm Mom the same time you worm puppies and clean up after them well so they don't get reinfected. Worming schedule: 2, 4, 6 weeks I use Nemex (pyrantel) 8 weeks Panacur for 3 days (same as Safeguard but liquid) easier to dose young pups.

I wouldn't recommend you do so. Remember that any flea/tick/worm medications you give to your mother will be transmitted through the milk. Since small dogs and puppies are the most likely to develop a toxic reaction to these, you could be jeopardizing the pups. Worse still would be to give the pups not enough wormer, and make whatever they have resistant. It's not much fun, but usually dogs can survive a few months with worms (we get rescue dogs that have had them for years). I would seem better to wait until the pups are weaned - so that each can be treated for their appropriate weight with the correct product. If everyone has worms, remember that eliminating grain-based kibble can help them combat that, as well.

No she would need a total of 5 grams a day for 3 days. That is a 1 gram and a 4 gram packet each day for 3 days. when a dog is between dose sizes you always go with the next size up and that is safe to effectively treat the worms

See table below

Each treatment requires wormer be given once daily for 3 consecutive days according to specified weight. Each package contains 3 packets, enough for 3 daily treatments. Simply mix granules with food. Please combine doses for dogs up to 30 lbs. or over 40 lbs. Safe for puppies 6 weeks or older and pregnant dogs.

We do dog rescue here, specializing in large farm dogs ranging from 75 to 250 pounds. I HIGHLY recommend the WormX 12 pack that is available from Petco.com. We give 3 tablets to our 135 pound Lab/Bull mastiff mix and 4 tablets to our 250 pound Bernese Mountain dog, and have had great success. Just choose the total number of tablets closest to your dog's weight.

Unfortunately, it looks like the wormer you're using is not working. Either you used too small a package; the worms being treated are different from the application you purchased; or your dog's immune system is highly compromised. If you dog is also being attacked by fleas regularly, keep in mind that is where the worm eggs come from, so you also need to treat for that. In addition, try removing kibble that has grains from its diet to enhance immune system.

We do dog rescue here, and I highly recommend Worm-X tablets. Easy to give - the dogs love the liver taste. Easy to measure. Usually effective in one dose if they are not being constantly attacked by fleas.

the 1 gram dose once a day for 3 days is for up to 10 lbs. any dog 1-10 lbs gets that dose and it is safe. If a dog is between dose sizes you give them the next highest dose.
