Hello, My name isXXXXX
Sentinel will help these intestinal parasites: whipworms, hookworms and roundworms
Sentinel will not do anything for tapeworms
Have you seen the worms in the stool? If so what did they look like?
Small white slightly round
about 3 in long
That sounds like it is probably a roundworm
will the dose take care of the worms should I go to vet?
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
Thanks so much for your help.
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 :)
Alright I will do that.
oops I spelled strongid wrong- silly auto correct
Great. Can I help you with anything else?
No that was it.
Ok. Good luck to you and Shay and thank you!
