Deworming puppies

I need some info about deworming dogs. I hope I can find useful infor here. (Mods, you may merge if you find necessary. Thanks.)

A adopted two 2 months old labrador puppies, which were about to be thrown away by a friend. I suspect they have worms because they freely roam around the compound and may be exposed to worm infection. The puppies are not as fat as they're supposed to be despite thier rich meal.

What is the typical deworming program for puppies of this age?

I remember the six weeks requirement from one of the dewormer packages I used with my previous dogs, which are now old adult dogs. So I administered the minimum dose almost a week ago; the day after, I saw heaps of dead worms in their feces. The pups have grown and gained weight since then. I intend to follow up after two weeks.

When should I administer the 3rd dose? Could you recommend a deworming product? The one I use now costs P85 per tablet; each puppy only needs 1/4 tablet per dose.

Obviously, I don't patronize professional services for this--merely for economic reason. Thanks in advance. :D

    Heartgard.

    You could bring your pups to the College of Veterinary Medicine at UP. They're very cheap.

    Came across this thread. Can't I just buy a commercial de-worming preparation (I suppose it would be a tablet) for my dogs and give it to them myself? I have four mutts, and it would be a pretty big hassle and cost to have to bring them to the vet just for deworming.

    Heartgard, as mentioned previously. It's a chewable.

    Im using Canex for my dogs. Which is better? Heartgard or Canex? Im finding it difficult to give them canex coz of its bitter smell.

    generic mebendazole. cheapest and best dewormer for animals. available at mercury or at any generic drug stores.

    mebendazole liquid for pups and tablets for adults.

    mebendazoles are widely used in piggery and poultry farms. antiox ang branded name for human grade.



    ok din combantrin kaso i feel it's expensive pag maraming ide-deworm.

    i won't recommend heartgard for pups. 1year old patas ok sya as dewormer lalo na against heartworms.

    yes you should deworm again but make sure he's 100% healthy. no soft poop, no colds nor cough, etc.

    don't know the price of combantrin. mag antiox liquid ka na lang. choco or vanilla flavor are ok. price is 100+/bot.

  • gotta lick itgotta lick it Member ✭✭✭
    ^ yep but if you plan to sell your puppy it is better to have the deworming done by the vet for documentation.

    bakit magkano ba ang mebendazole? at pyrantel? you have to deworm your puppy twice.

    medyo late na ang 2 months. it is not about the age but rather the weight. 1ml per 5lbs.
