Customer Question
Our four month old...

Our four month old Labrador retriever has an outbreak of worms in her stomach, we gave her a normal dose of dewormer which directed to give it to her every 2 weeks , but she is still acting strange a few days after the dosage by staring at her stomach frequently, can we give another dosage of the dewormer? She stopped eating 4 days ago after a few day of vomiting , as ahe coughed up several worms that day.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the Labrador Retriever eat anything unusual?

Not that we are aware of

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the Labrador Retriever's name?

We have been bottle feeding her trying to get her to eat everyday

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the Labrador Retriever?

No , she is in good health until now, very happy active dog

Since Duravet wormer is sold as an OTC wormer the strength is not what you would get at a Vets office. In the Vets office, If You could try a different wormer that may be more effective called Panacur You should be able to get it at the feed store or Pet supply. You follow the directions on the package.

Both Strongid and Panacur have a wide Margin of safety and both can be given every 10 days.

Please hit reply to discuss this information..
