Deworming for tapes
Posted 19 March 2012 - 09:47 AM
I have read advice on this topic before, but I don't seem to be entering the correct search terms since I can not find the advice when I search for it. Please let me know how you treat for tapes (PMs are OK) - preferably using the fenbendazole I have on hand. Or else, what do you buy over the counter that is effective? I would prefer not to have to submit a fecal to the vet (and pay the $) before I can buy Droncit or Drontal - particularly since I saw the tapes. ( I don't need confirmation.)
Thank you in advance,

You'll need to give the Panacur for 3-5 consecutive days for it be successful.

It seems to scare people cause they're for fish.
One day I was really sick, had a bladder infection that I hadn't realized and waited way to long to get to the doc. I went later that day and we had a little conversation about fishbiotics. She was quite surprised then said, "you know I can't recommend taking anything other than what I prescribe but I sure wish people without insurance would find out about these meds. They might not be as tested as what we use for humans but would be totally better than nothing."
That morning, not having enough time to get to the doc till later I had hemmed and hawed about if I should take the fish biotics myself. I decided to error on the side of caution. I'm glad I went to the doctor but she did get me thinking....
Just my personal experiences, and if you aren't sure what you're treating, then a vet visit is in order but sometimes it's just the "prescribing" part that has me going to the vet. And I do understand that we should not be diagnosing ourselves or our pets but I for one do it rather often for routine aliments. Again, that's just me.
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
