Sonya, his worming history needs to be revisited. Coccidia, the nematodes hookworms and whipworms, and the protozoan Giardia are all important considerations in puppies with hematochezia (blood in the stool). The wormer of choice is fenbendazole (over the counter Panacur, e.g.) for 3 consecutive days as it addresses all of the nematodes as well as Giardia. Coccidia is best addressed with the prescription ponazuril. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

Hi Sonya,

I'm just following up on our conversation about Sonya Bowden. How is everything going?
