  1. I'm new to this forum (and greyhounds) and have learned a lot from all the great posts here, but I do have some additional questions. We adopted Coco about 6 weeks ago and she was hookworm positive (shocking). The group we adopted from gave her a dose of Pyrantel the day we picked her up and instructed us to give her 4ml every 2 weeks. I have been doing just that, but her poop tends to get worse for a day or two after the treatment, is this normal? She has only had 1 good, pick up able poop since we have had her. I do my best to pick it all up, but it really is impossible as it mostly com
  2. We're a couple months into the Prison Protocol and realized that the two meds (Advantage Multi and Drontal Plus) cover pretty much everything except for ticks What do others using the protocol do for tick prevention? We're wary of combo products, we don't want to double up on meds that are for the other bugs, since we know he's already covered, but we're having a hard time finding anything just for ticks. What do you guys like/use?
  3. Looking for opinions from this greyt group! I've been lurking for a while but could now use some insight, or to be told that I'm overthinking it! We've had our new grey (Bismarck) for about a month now and have been debating changing his food, for a couple of reasons: 1) He is on Purina One SmartBlend Chicken & Rice - I know, I know, full of all the "crap" they say not to feed your dog (corn/soy/wheat). But it's what he was on at the kennel and when he came home he refused to eat anything else. We try not to give in completely to the hype about the need for super fancy dog food, bu
  4. Has anyone been successful in eradicating hookworms by using the Prison Greyhound Program hookworm protocol to the letter?
  5. Does anyone know if tortoises can transfer hookworms to dogs? Are reptile parasites/nematodes transferable to mammals, specifically canines? We've been battling hooks for almost a year now. It occurs to me that the tortoises that frequent our yard may have something to do with Lola being reinfected. Thoughts?
  6. Good Morning All - While I know this has been a topic multiple times, I have read through and am seeking advice on some of the common side-effects people have seen with de-worming meds. My grey is 4 years old, and has had hooks off and on since we adopted him approximately 7 months ago. He has had two fecal tests that were clear; however, last week he tested positive again. We took in a sample as he had a decreased appetite and typically that indicates that his tummy isn't feeling 100%. He is not a huge "food driven" grey but does usually have a decent appetite overall. On a typical day, h
  7. Good evening, I am seeking advice regarding an issue I am having with my Grey (Keeper). About a week ago, Keeper did not want to eat his breakfast and I could hear his stomach gurgling. After reading some posts, I gave him a Pepcid Tablet and within 1 hour - he ate normally. My vet also recommended that I try to feed him a "snack" before bed as this may help with the stomach acid buildup overnight. My husband and I started that this last week and have had no problems since then (yay!). When Keeper does refuse to eat, it is usually accompanied by some loose stool; however, once he eats he g
