I am lucky !!! None of mine have had any worms for over 30 years . No sprays , no soaps , etc. Just K9 Advantix and Interseptor . Yes, it's a monthly expense , but worth it for me and for them . I'm down to only Ollie now , and would love another dog , but can't afford the wellness program for another .

I don't know if you can count on something that works for all...didn't you advice a vet in addition?

I know this is kind of late..... but there are OTC oral tapeworm meds that are equal to the high priced oral vet prescribed tapeworm meds.

The active ingredient would be praziquantel. There are many OTC brands now.. but tradewinds come to mind.

Forgot to add:

Dogs get tape worms from infected fleas...that were swallowed.
Or they can get tapeworms from rodents that they ate, that were infected or that had infected fleas on them.

and even tho you put the flea med on.......they (the fleas) were probably already ingested. once the tapeworm is gone, all should be fine now.
