Dr Deb my apologies for taking a bit to reply but those pictures were gruesome and it was kinda like the pota saying, u couldn't jus view one. Oh my gosh!!! Makes u wonder if u really need a dog or not...and we have 4 inside and twin 4 year olds grandbabies living here. In answer to ur questions is as follows: 1) they are very similar to these pics but ive never seen a long one, only the lil white pieces. and they are plump too but when up and wiggling they have a flat appearance too. They do seem to dry to a powdery, starchy white, when the air begins hitting them and then there is only that left. The powdery looking place.
2) Not round at all.
3) My husband got the wormer from our vet. It was injectable and the follow up was 7 days later. I kept the pkg for a good while but must have discarded it....sorry!!
4) Yes we did worm all the other dogs as well and they all responded well to the treatment.
One other thing I have thought about, we do have a cat about a year old. Female, spaded. No sign of worms. But she does have a litter box. Is there a possibility if he MAY be raiding her box??????
Again, so sorry for taking so long to reply Dr. Deb.
Pegi: I also wanted to share this additional LINK with you. Bostons are not particularly known for hunting and eating their prey but this is another source of infection with tapeworms.Luckiy, the same drug (Praziquantel) will kill all species of tapeworms regardless of the underlying cause of infection.

dr. Deb...I don't know if I have submitted this already but Im afraid it didn't sent when I entered it last time. I
I don't know if it has any consequence or not but u said if he had an immature immune system could be a part of the problem. I bottle fed Lil Andy from day one. His mother refused to nurse AT ALL. We made several attempts but she jus would not allow it. Two really small sisters did not make it but I pulled Lil Andy thru with a lot of very lil sleep and very tired days. But he was worth it.
My next question is to ask if my grandbabies are being put in danger with him being in the home with them. One is VERY attached to him and sleeps with him everu nite. They are constantly loving on him and snugglin and etc. Sometimes Maci will allow him to kiss her on the mouth. Which we have cautioned her and warned her against this but to deaf ears. Each time she thinks we are not looking she continues to do it. So is he putting these children at risk Dr Deb??
Thank you for the rating; it's greatly appreciated. I also wanted to wish you the best with this situation since I know how frustrating it can be.
Kindly ignore the request for additional information. Regards, Deb

Pegi: You're incredibly kind and I'm grateful for your comments but I don't consider you to be a PIA at all:) I'm the one who should be apologizing to you for all the problems and complications with the site! I see that you've asked questions before and know how the site works. Why it decides to have problems is something I'll never understand but it is certainly very frustrating and annoying to say the least! I did receive your rating and the bonus did come through so thanks again.
Again, I'm so sorry that you had so many problems with the site today. If we ever chat in the future, hopefully, there won't be as many issues. Regards, Deb
