Default stupid worms

well i cant be certain where Ruby picked them up, but shes got roundworms poor baby.
She didnt have them before she left me...and hasnt been anywhere she might have gotten them since returning home. (vixie, doder Rosie and Charlie are all worm free and the garden is kept very clean with daily poop pick up.)

so i called the vet, since ive seen liveworms in her poop there definatly rounds, she said if these are adult worms she must have picked them up either before leaving or while away at her "part time" home for that week...she seems to belive its most likely she picked them up during that week as its "perfect" timing...

shes given us a generic Pyrantel Paoemate (sp?) essentially generic strongid to kill em and clean her up...

but she warned me due to the fact i didnt notice any worms untill this morning, and have been lazy the past few days picking up because im not feeling great, there could be the risk of the other dogs getting them from the yard.

So...
Im going to end up treating all the dogs obviously...

But is there any yard spray or something i can use after poop pickup to kill any that might be remaining in the garden?!

weve NEVER had worms so this is new to me and i dont want this to be a repeating problem...

any suggestions?

and heres me thinking "i wonder why ruby is so skinny, shes eating great...hmmm...."
one more thing to add to the, what the hell did that lady do to you while you were away.
i was nice and e-mailed her to tell her that ruby had worms that the vet belives she picked up while at her home, i didnt make any suggestions about it being her dog but said if she has wild animals comming into her yard it could be that and because she has a young daughter it would be best to just be safe.
she threw a hissy fit because i must have sent ruby to her WITH worms (despite the 2 vet records stating 3 differten fecals were clean!) and its all my fault and im a bad dog owner...*sigh*

eitherway, pyrantel should clear them up quick right?!

That should do the trick. Other dog owners don't always do what they should. My dog got gastro from som eone else's dog. After the 150 vet bill, they said their had dog diarrhea for a week. Great.

When my vet treated Charlie for worms he got the meds for 3 days in a row, and then another dose 6 weeks later for 3 more days. That way it kills any that have been incubating after the first round of them dies. I also put him on Interceptor, as it helps prevent worms if they remain in the yard. I don't know of anything you can treat the yard with, but that's what worked for us.

I miss you every day, Charlie. You were my teacher, my playmate, and my best friend. Together, we did what we set out to do, and I am so proud of us for that.

Hi CM,
Baloo was treated for roundworms 2 weeks ago. So in another 4 weeks, I should give him 3 more days of Panacur?

id ask your vet about that, some brands have you treat for 3 days, wait a few weeks then trat again for 3 days...
others just require one treatment and then a repeat in a couple weeks, and others still just require a single treatment.

the pyrantel is essentially the same treatment as strongid, i belive panacure is 3 days wait 6 weeks do another 3 days.

I have to take the vet a stool sample tomorrow. I'll see what he says.

i think dog parks are pretty much the worse place you can take your dog, although its fun for your dog, there is so much badness, dont you guys agree?
