if my dog has worms will his dose of Sentinel Flavor tab eliminate

This answer was rated:

if my dog has worms will his dose of Sentinel Flavor tab eliminate the worms and/or can I give a wormer if he has had a Sentinel Tab?

Dr. Laurie :

Hello, My name isXXXXX

Dr. Laurie :

Sentinel will help these intestinal parasites: whipworms, hookworms and roundworms

Dr. Laurie :

Sentinel will not do anything for tapeworms

Dr. Laurie :

Have you seen the worms in the stool? If so what did they look like?

Customer:

Small white slightly round

Customer:

about 3 in long

Dr. Laurie :

That sounds like it is probably a roundworm

Customer:

will the dose take care of the worms should I go to vet?

Dr. Laurie :

so the sentinel will help to deworm for that. You can also safely give an additional dewormer like pyrantel (stringed) or panacur (fenbendazole) to treat roundworms. Pets will often need to be dewormed more than once for roundworms

Customer:

Thanks so much for your help.

Dr. Laurie :

The sentinel dose should deworm but I would still recommend following up with your vet and bring a fecal sample in 2 weeks after giving the sentinel because an additional deworming is often needed :)

Customer:

Alright I will do that.

Dr. Laurie :

oops I spelled strongid wrong- silly auto correct

Dr. Laurie :

Great. Can I help you with anything else?

Customer:

No that was it.

Dr. Laurie :

Ok. Good luck to you and Shay and thank you!
