5 yr old American Pitbull was diagnosed with roundworms.

5 yr old American Pitbull was diagnosed with roundworms. Given Drontal 2 tablets 10days apart. Given Doxycycline for 28 days. Had tarry diarrhea today. What can be the cause?JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the dog?Customer: Tarry like diarrhea earlier today.JA: Where does the dog seem to hurt?Customer: he doesntJA: Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?Customer: just the diarrhea. Tired but he was bathed today and normally comes back tired. Did have less of an apetite but still eating.JA: Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?Customer: Oscar.JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Oscar?Customer: Diagnosed with roundworms 4 weeks ago. Was given 2 doses of Drontal 10 days apart. He had a positive blood work for lyme disease last summer and did have a limp in his front led in December. I gave him glucomax because the vet thought it might have been an injury. I stopped giving him the glucomax. Then Iimp reoccurred in March. I asked the vetenarian to do a fecal test. He came back positive with roundworms. He was given Drontal for 2 weeks and then doxycycline going on to 4 weeks at the end of this week. Not sure if the vet suspects that the limp maybe had to do with lyme disease. The tarry stools started around the same time as the worms. Got better, but was present again today. He has another fecal test due this week. Also will be requesting an analysis of his urine. My dog is difficult to control at the vet and so I am wondering if there is anything else that I can request or any ideas of what it might be?
