Guest posted a topic in Health and Medical discussionHi all. We've been treating Brady for hookworms since a few days after we adopted him (May 10) and he is still having symptoms (mainly pudding poo and occasionally grass eating followed by vomiting). Brady just finished his third, three-day round of Panacur on Saturday and his poops don't look any better, although he is going less often. We are going to do another three day round starting three weeks later (July 4). He's also been on Flagyl twice. The first time (about a week after adopting him), his poop was perfect the next day after starting a 7 day treatment, but then got worse over time (although the terrible stench didn't come back). This is when his stool came back positive for hooks. The second time he was given 14 days of Flagyl (with some improvement, but not much), which he just finished yesterday. Considering he just finished anti-biotics and has a bad case of hooks, I'm going to start giving him Forti-Flora tonight to see if that helps. I'm just wondering how long it's going to take to get rid of these things! And when should I start worrying that this treatment plan isn't working. If you're dog has had hookworms, how long did it take for you to get rid of them?! What was your treatment plan?
