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 all. Since I found out that Brady has hookworms, I've been looking for ways to disinfect my yard safely and came across this product in my research. It's all natural, but effectively kills bugs, including parasitic worms. I had planned on dusting my yard where Brady 'goes' and his bedding with it, but then I found this food grade supplement at Tractor Supply (my new favorite store) and was wondering if anyone ever heard of or have used it as a dewormer or supplement? It even kills fleas and, I think, ticks, so it might be a good idea to dust the fur with it before hiking, etc. http://new.vetinfo.com/treating-dog-hookworm-diatomaceous-earth.html http://www.tractorsupply.com/en/store/red-lake-earthreg%3B-diatomaceous-earth-with-calcium-bentonite-20-lb I would never give Brady any supplement without first discussing with his vet, but was curious if anyone else has heard of this product.
