Ever since we've had our 6-month old pup he's had trouble with worms, its mostly just tapes. When we took him to the vet in May, they did the fecal and everything came back negative for worms.The vet went ahead and gave us a pill called Cestex that is suppose to get rid of them for good, but obviously it didn't work. And we have actually been de-worming him every 2 weeks for the past month. Has anyone else had this problem? The worms he passes in his stool is just maybe less than 5 and it's only every other time, but still I'm really worried and the vet doesn't seem to think it's no big problem.
