Hi there,

Thank you for your question. Did you just see these hookworms in your boy's poop today after his trifexis? Were his feces a normal consistency?

I will wait to hear from you,

Dr E

My wife noticed he had the worms when he pooped after his meal

Hi again,

Thanks for that. Thankfully the Trifexis will cover him for the hookworms you saw (as well as any roundworm or whipworm he may also have). It doesn't cover him for Tapeworm however, so you will need to get him treated for that in the next couple of weeks if you can. Drontal is ideal for that and your local vet team can weigh your boy again and ensure he gets the right dose of that.

Hopefully his feces are a nice normal consistency, but if he develops diarrhea or goes off his food, then you will need to get him seen by your local vet in the next day or two. Either way, I would recommend a vet follow up again when he is due for his second round of shots so they can carry out a fecal float to ensure he is all ok in terms of the treatment he received having killed the worm burden he had. I hope all of the above makes sense? If you have more questions or if I can help in any other way, please do not hesitate to ask! If you would like to accept my answer, please press RATE OUR CONVERSATION (I am not compensated in any other way). Bonuses are always welcome. Thanks! I hope to work with you again soon!

Kind Regards,

Dr E

It came thru..so should the trifexis kill the hook worms?
Dog Veterinarian: Pet Doc, Dog Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

Yes - most definitely!

Do keep in mind that trifexis won't kill tapeworm however, so you will need to use a separate product for them ongoing every 3 months.
