    I dont think so I think you need to wait 5 days after they stop the medication.

    My vet recommends at least a month after any medication is ended.

    I know the wormer I used said,"14 days."

    It's an antibiotic resistance thing I'm pretty sure.

    If you eat them you won't have worms!! If you go ahead and eat them have alot of toilet paper on hand!!!

    Every medication has different hold back times, so check the labels carefully.

    My vet said, perhaps tongue in cheek, it will just worm yourself. What's the big deal? Might make you feel better too.
