    DefaultDe-worming for dogs

    Hi!
    I’m a huge animal lover and I was wondering if anyone could help me solve
    my problem…
    I have a dog who’s name is Elvis and a cat who’s name is Princess!
    I’ve discovered that Elvis had worms, (is it possible that he got from other pets???)
    so I want to my vet and he gave him a de-worming medication in a tablet form but he wouldn’t swallow it!!
    I didn’t want to use too much force so I tried wrapping it with some sausage but he some how figured it out!
    please help me!!
    Tami

    With cats you can try crushing the tablet and putting it into their food. Perhaps withhold one meal so the cat is hungry at the next...they usually figure out by smell that there is something different in the food but if they are hungry they should eat it. If worst comes to worst you have to use the force method and make them swallow it. Not nice but sometimes it is the only way.

    You can try the crushing method with your dog too if you think it will work. If not, try covering the pill in something else. Cream cheese? peanut butter?

    And yes, it is possible for dogs to get worms from other pets.

    Hi Tami!
    about five months ago my dog Angie suffered from worms.
    my friend told me to buy a de-worming pill and mix it with some chicken but
    Angie figured it out and only ate a quarter…
    that happened a couple of times unlit two months ago I’ve found a solution in a form of dry food that my Angie really liked and I didn’t have to force her at all !!!
    you should try it …
