My snowball just turned 6 last month and I was thinking that he hasnt been deworm since we picked him up from the breeder about 6 yrs ago. I am not a fan of chemical ingredients they use on these dewormers, i havent really ask the vet about it but we have an appointment this friday for his bi-annual physical exam (blood test, vaccines titer, vaccines). He is one healthy active boy and has been using revolution for preventive since forever, I dont take him to dog park much, but he has alot of contacts with other dogs at the daycare he goes to. They are all on preventives because thats one of the vet/daycare policy. I dont think he has worms because he hasnt change the way he eats, he doesnt go through garbages and never get a hold of dirty stuff and doesnt eat poop lol
My question is:
1. Do you have any bad experience with dewormers?
(intraceptor sp?) thats what Im thinking of giving
2. Do you use it all year round? or just certain
3. What will I expect after Ive given him the dewormer?
(change of personality, stool discolouration,
diarrhea, constipation, mucous, upset stomach,
lost of appetite??)
4. Will I really see actual worms in his stool??
5. And is there any signs would I know that if the product really works?
I wanted to ask these questions so when we go see our vet I kind of have a slight idea about products advantages and disadvantages.
Thank you very much for your time and help. Have a great week! take care all
