Hello!
Thanks for using JustAnswer.com, I'm Dr. Dan and I'll try to help you.
The best choice for whipworms is fenbendazole this can be found at many different pet stores here is a good example: http://www.amazon.com/Guard-Canine-Dewormer-Large-4-Gram/dp/B000FPH2FQ/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1436235790&sr=8-2&keywords=fenbendazole
I hope this helps, if not please feel free to ask more questions.

I used Drontal and it didn't help. She still has stools that look like red gel. I bought her in the state of FL and she has had loose stool since the very first day. I will try the fenbendazole. She weighs about 140 lbs. What is the recommended dosage.
Expert:  Dr. Dan replied 1 year ago.
The dosage will depend on the strength of the powder sold to you, so there will be instructions on the box based on your dog's weight for the concentration of the powder they sell you.
