Guest posted a topic in Health and Medical discussionWell, Mr. Ollie was finally diagnosed as having a high load of hookworms that I'm sure he came home with (recently adopted). So now it's a game of trying to get rid of them, we started with a dose of Drontal to see if that gets us anywhere, we'll go from there after a followup fecal. What are your monthly parasite preventatives of choice? I was looking in to Trifexis since it also kills and repels fleas. Of course, almost any type you look at there seems to be dogs who have had severe adverse effects (seemingly like the Quest/Zimectrin Gold in horses). So of course, now I'm totally paranoid. A few suggestions from fellow grey parents will greatly put my mind at ease! You guys are the best!
Hi, first post on here so I'm sorry if this has been posted before - I did a couple of searches but didn't see what I was looking for. I'm having a hard time getting my greyhound to eat his monthly Trifexis pill. He used to eat it if I just threw it in with his food, but he doesn't anymore. I have tried letting the pill sit out for a day (my friend said that it helps get the medicine-y smell off of it), and covering it in peanut butter but so far no luck. It looks like the Trifexis pills are too big for the pill pack things that I normally see at pet stores. Any tips/tricks you use to help get your greyhound to eat his/her medicine?
