    I just wormed my ladies for the first time 5 days ago with Piperazine. I know this is good for getting rid of round worms. Is this good enough to just kill round worms or do i need to use something else to kill other types of worms? The Piperazine sure worked well but how long does it keep working to kill the worms(couple days)? Is it necessary to use another broad spectrum de- wormer? If so when should i do it again.? I get mixed messages about the eggs( wait a week or two before eating)? I was going to wait a week!
