Customer Question

We were given a puppy from our neighbors a couple days ago. We assumed it hadn’t had any shots or medications and have started them. Today one of the other puppies died from worms. We got worm medicine today but are wondering what else we need to do!! We have young children

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations the dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name?

Hank

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Hank?

He’s had his first dhlpp shot and had had flea medication.

HI this is DRB and I would be happy to help you with this...you need pyrantel to give your puppy and it should be given at 1 ml per 10 pounds every 2 weeks for at least 4 separate treatments. You will need to consult your vet about this and also have fecals done as well to make sure your puppy becomes clear of worms. I would also recommend that after the 4 pyrantel treatments that your vet do at least 2 treatments with drontal plus. Also the puppy must not lick your children in the face and they should wash their hands after each playtime with puppy. All poop in yard needs to be picked up immediately always. Children should never be in yard with bare feet. I am including a link for you to the parasite animal control council website which has everything you need to know about parasites. I hope this helps. Sincerely, DRB
