    Which dewormer should I buy? I cant get her to the Vet until the 8th so I need something before then

    we have a Tractor Supply near by

    we just adopted a Boston Terrier, and a Chihuahua

    one of them pottied inside just now, DH found it, and cleaned it up before I could get in there, he said it had worms in it, (I again did NOT see this)

    I asked for a desription he said rice like (tape worms if so)

    does the stuff that TSC sell do any good?

    Pick up Drontal plus from the vet, it will
    get tape worms too. You should be able to just buy it
    without a vet exam, at least you can here.

    You can use Safeguard "goat" wormer.

    It's the same chemical as Panacure (Fenbenzadole)

    Give them 1 ML per 5 lbs body weight, on 3 consecutive days
    You can get it at Tractor Supply or most good feed stores

    Quote:I'm with "farmchick", Drontal Plus is what you should use; it will get all kinds of intestinal worms!

    TSC didnt have what we needed, so I called around, the other locally owned feed store did, my Dad ran and got it for me when he picked his 55 lb bag of fish chow up (LOTS of Koi at his house)

    it treated 3 worms, gave it to her at 2 and by 5 she was expelling them!!!

    it contained 30 mg of pyrantel and praziquantel.

    the pkg said to only give one pill.

    She goes to the Vet on the 8th so I will have them check her then.

    Thank you all

    My Dad is in the ER right now, with blood in his urine and bowel movements, I am terrified, but home with our children, by the phones, and computer.
