One more thing: were the worms like rice or spaghetti?
I am online just another few moments...
So for tapeworms (that look like rice) this requires fenbendazole or praziquantal and typically I will treat two weeks apart to ensure we are able to resolve the worm infestation. These are often prescription medicationsIf these are roundworms (spaghetti-like) then the above can be effective but also pyrantel pamoate can be used and I do treat 10-14 days after initial dose to ensure we remove all worm burdenI hope this makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you. It might be tomorrow morning but I will do my best to respond asap
