just an update. Riley has tape tapeworms and a internal parasite called coccidia But other than that he is well ...treatment has already begun!
We also went with Interceptor for heart worm meds and got frontline for fleas.

Thanks again ....more questions coming!

Did you get to see both parents? Did both parents look like your puppy in regards to how they were colored?

Someone with 47 dogs that sends home a pup with tapeworms and coccidia is NOT someone you want to deal with in the future. Sounds like this guy is an Aussie puppymill.

I hope your guy recovers quickly and you could use Sentinel but since you're already using Interceptor, I don't know why you would double up? Interceptor also protects against intenstinal worms, or at least the most common ones.

Canidae...be careful with this. Canidae is not as good of a food as it was a couple years ago; they shifted the ingredients and a LOT of people have had issues with it since. If you can, give us a list of what your feed store sells (if that's the only place you can get your food) and we can tell you what might be good choices. Otherwise, let us know what type of pet stores are in your area and we can help you pick something out from there as well.

Myself, I've had great results with my Aussie on Innova (The Healthiest Pet Foods in the World Natural & Organic Pet Food Natura Pet Products). The website has a store finder feature as well.

Sammgirl, with Aussies, there isn't going to be anything the coat color will tell you, since Aussies have such varying colorations.

Kenya had coccidia when I adopted her also. the medicine for coccidia for us was a powder and its very yucky, so much sure to get some yummy moist food so he eats it up ground beef also works well for that kind of thing
oh and when he poops, pick it up, and spray bleach on the area if you can.. coccidia will live in the ground and come back.

he had dewormed them but i guess OTA dewormer does not worm on tapeworms. This guy lives for his dogs ..he was some guy in the country and he said he only leave his house to go get dog food. There was only 2 litters out of 47 dogs so im not sure...if it was an aussie mill? He did offer at anytime if the dog got sick that he would take him back and nurse him back to health...But that might just be BS

Sammgirl's question about whether the pup looks like his parents in terms of coat color is skewed. Aussies, especially those with merle coats, very rarely look just like their parents, so it's not a good question to ask if you're trying to determine parentage.

Also, I would recommend you stick with Interceptor. It's just a better product with a better safety track record.

It is a good question if you're trying to determine if the pup is a lethal white. Which, since both puppy's parents are merle, it most certainly is a lethal white.

I'm not a collie person, but I know a little bit about genetics. I'm not ignorant enough to assume that two merles look alike regarding exact coloration.
