but i did take in all the info on the information card i got when i bought her, i did show the vet she never mentioned deworming so i thought well maybe she was dewormed- I know when i bought bentley his records were much more well put together and all shots and dewormings where recorded - and i seen bentley was dewormed 3 times i thnk it was by the time we got him when he was 7-8 weeks old- now the vet decides to try and deworm daisy - testing neg for coccida but stll has all diarhea and all signs of coccida- will she need to be dewormed again? this was a 3 day medication she had to take. why was bentley dewromed 3 differnt times and daisy only once? Guess im confused- did my vet over look this in the beginning? i have switched vets since and hes the one that wanted to try deworming her thinking maybe she had worms even tho her stool screaning showed nothing- still she has loose stool not as bad but still not normal- should she be dewormed again? she is now 5 months old- the vet wants to do blood work and go from there hoping to find out what is causing the diarhea- ugh i just dont know what it could be and why on earth im having such a horrible time trying to get my baby well- yes i know shes a mill pup but seems like all the meds and all the vaccines that she should be on her way to being a healthy normal baby girl- guess im just worried. if she did have worms would this 3 day medication take care of it? i read the post about the puppy dying from tape worms- so now i wonder if maybe deworming her again would be in her best intrest when bentley was dewormed 3 times- when he was a baby- did they see worms and thats why he was dewormed that many times? boy thsi is so confusing-
Most breeders have a deworming protocal. Mine start at 2 weeks and are dewormed for roundworms until they are 8 weeks every other week.
Rounds pass from the mother, starting at 2 weeks stops them from maturation and I continue because my pups nurse till 7 weeks.
Many vets deworm 2-3 times after the puppy gets to its new home.
Coccidia is a protozoa not a worm, so albon which treats for it will not treat for any of the 4 common worm parasites. Uless you have panacure and that will treat most worms. Is it a powder you put in the food or a yellow pill or liquid?
If the pup is wormed with Panacure, it will pretty much take care of almost any parasite. So, if you are concerned about any type of parasite, if I were in your situation, I would request a Panacure treatment from your vet, it sure will not hurt your pup.
I start worming my pups with Nemex at 2 wks. of age, repeating every 10 days until 6-7weeks, then in the 8th week of age they get a 3 day treatment of Panacur. Mom gets the same schedule of wormings. Your puppy could have coccidia. It is not always found in the first stool check, nor will Panacur take care of it. Albon is normally used. Could require all the way up to 21 days of treatment to get rid of it. Your puppy could also have giardia, which 5-7 days of Panacur can be used. Flagyl is also used for giardia.
