Can Pyrantel Pamoate or Ivomec be used for either coccidia or giardia in dogs?
Type of Animal: American Eskimos & Australian Shepherds
Age: All Ages
Hi, thanks for your question! Unfortunately, neither of those parasites can be treated using pyrantel pamoate or ivomec. Coccidia must be treated with Sulfadimethoxine or an equivalent, and Giardia must be treated with fenbendazole or sometimes metronidazole.
