OK. here's the breakdown on canine "worms" and what to use to get rid of them. Forgive any spelling errors.

The 7 most common intestinal parasites that dogs get are:

roundworms (Toxocara species), hookworms (Ancylostoma caninum, Ancylostoma braziliense and Uncinaria stenocephala), whipworms (Trichuris vulpis, T. campanula, T. serrata), tapeworms (Diplylidium caninum, Taenia pisiformis), coccidia (a protozoan) and giardia (a protozoan).

Agents that treat them:

Pyrantel Pamoate (also known as Strongid, Nemex) kills roundworms & hookworms only

Fenbendazole (also known as Panacur and Safeguard) kills roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, & giardia. It also kills the Taenia species of tapeworm, but this is NOT the kind of tapeworm commonly seen in dogs. Do not be fooled by this on the labeling.

Praziquantel (also known as Drontal, Droncit, Profender, and the fish tape tabs) kills all species of tapeworms including Diplylidium caninum, which is the most common tapeworm ever seen in dogs. Keep in mind that these tapeworms are caused by your dog eating fleas, so even if you de-worm your dog and don't keep the fleas gone, the tapeworms will keep coming back. Stay flea free.

Sulfadimethoxine (also known as Albon) kills coccidia. This must be given for an entire week with double the dose on the first day in order to get rid of coccidiosis infestation.

So as you can see, there is no single de-wormer that gets rid of everything. You have to know what you are doing and what you are looking at. The only two parasites you can see with the naked eye are roundworms and tapeworms. Hookworms, whipworms, coccidia, and giardia are all microscopic and can only be seen on fecal flotation or similar analysis. Tapeworms are usually NOT seen on fecal flotation because the eggs are too heavy. But you can see them in your dogs stool or on their butt or where they lay. They look like pieces of rice.

Also, not all of these parasites always cause symptoms. Your dog can have normal stool and appetite and still have an infestation of hookworms, roundworms, or whipworms. Whipworms usually cause a dark or tarry and sometimes loose stool, but not always. Coccidia usually causes a lighter colored diarrhea, as does giardia. But not always. Tapeworms generally do not cause any problems other than being gross and taking a small amount of nutrition from your dog. So to truly know what your dog may have, make sure to keep an eye on his stool for what you can see and take a sample to the vet for what you can't see; OR learn to perform your own fecal flotation if you have a microscope, slides, and the right kind of flotation solution.

Also, FYI, if you decide to use a heartworm prevention other than just Ivermectin, use Interceptor because it also kills roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms. I avoid Hearguard Plus. It only does rounds and hooks, so you might as well get the Interceptor, which is better product for the same price.

Hope this helps. If I can provide anyone with any additional information, please let me know. If I don't know the answer I will try to find it for you.

If you're worried about worm larvae in the ground,buy some 20 Mule Team Borax, take dog away from area, sprinkle the borax down like a light dusting of snow, go over the area with a hose sprayer let the borax saturate the area, DO NOT put dog back until the area is dry......kills worm larvae esp. the hard shell of the coccidia larvae.
Hope this helps.

You can use fish tapes for tape worms, but don't forget to take care of the flea problem or you will get them again. Panacure and valbazen get some tape worms but not the ones they get from fleas.

i use, equimax. Equimax has prazinquatiel and ivomec You draw the paste out into a 12cc syringe, you should get between 7-8cc. Give a 50 lb dog 1cc of paste. This will get rid of all tape worms. The paste all has a tripple dosage of ivomec, don't worry it wont harm your dog. Just skip your monthly ivomec when you give equimax. I can't think of any other way that is more efficient and cheaper to treat your dog for tape worms. You can keep taking your dog to the vet to get dewormed if you want to get ripped off. Damn near all the meds to treat worms that are by prescription can be purchased with a prescription when labeled for cattle and swine. The only thing i got to the vet for is for rabies shots and emergencies.

for fleas you can use bayer tree and shrub. they sell it in the insecticide and fertilizer sections at home depot and lowes. Put 3cc for every 10lbs down the dogs back. This stuff has the same active ingredients as K9 advantix. One bottle costs $17 dollars and will treat over 50# 50lb dogs.
