Even pets that live in luxury can be at risk of harmful parasites, so instead of blaming yourself get hold of a good quality deworming treatment. Deworming is the only way to completely protect your pets from parasites. As there are many brands available to choose from, it is important to be able to distinguish between these various brands and to know what they have to offer.
I have used Panacur on my horse before and I know it provides a range for dogs too. I particularly liked the Equine Paste, targeted at adult and immature roundworms that have infested the gastro-intestinal tract in horses, and which can either be syringed directly into your horse’s mouth or be mixed in with its feed. If you want to pace the treatment, then use the Panacur Liquid Guard which is a 5 day gradual treatment.
The dog wormers are available in the form of granules or paste. These can be mixed into the food or administered orally. This wormer has an ovicidal effect on nematode eggs and it acts as a treatment for general roundworm. If your puppy is infected with protozoa then this product is the best choice for you, the same applies if you have an adult dog that is infested with tapeworms. This product also reduces prenatal infections like toxocara canis, which is a dangerous condition easily transferable to puppies from their mother’s milk. Panacur also kills lungworms and oslerus esleri or protozoa giardia.
If you want a product made for a particular animal species, then use Drontal Plus. This product is well known for fighting dog worms better than any other product on the market. Their dog worming tablets they produce efficiently kill a wide variety of tapeworms and roundworms. It comes in the form of easily digestible tablets, with clear information on dosage, dependable on weight and breed.
Drontal Puppy Suspension is also available for puppies and younger dogs up to one year old. It deals with common problems at this age, such as hookworm and whipworm, as well as all other worms previously mentioned.
The most important thing to remember about choosing any dog or horse wormers is that you have to know what your dog is suffering from. It is always advised to visit your vet before making any decision on new medicines.
