Hi John,

I am aware that we are discussing a Llama even if you did mistakenly post it to the dog category. As well, I have read your history twice now and there is no mention of the brand of wormer you used. It simply says " treated for gastrointestinal roundworms" and as not all wormers are created equally and since we see resistance with some, it would be ideal if you can tell me that brand name (or type it again if it was accidently deleted). That way I can fully assess your lad's situation and see if we can take some steps to help address this diarrhea.

Look forward to hearing back from you,

Dr. B.
