Can Pyrantel Pamoate or Ivomec be used for either coccidia

Can Pyrantel Pamoate or Ivomec be used for either coccidia or giardia in dogs?
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.
