How do you prevent tapeworm in your dogs the Warm months are taking a toll on my dog with worms. I recently just switched over to a heartworm medication that prevents them, after numerous worm treatments. Just curious if anything else out there is available

Haven't seen any in stools in years. Ivermectin seems to work.

Heartgaurd plus once a month and one dose of Bavecto in May/June keep all parasites away year around.

Yep! No Fleas ticks tape or other worms. Tapes come from fleas. Control the fleas and no tape problem. Ivermectin has been all I use in over 30 years.

Give them a dose of this with your ivermectin every month. The first time give it to them three days in a row. You wonít have any kind of worms. Itís cheap if you buy it for horses.

^ thatís what I use, you can get it in an even larger container. Five days in a row use will knock down cocillia, a puppy issue. I give .5 cc per 5 lbs, but Iím not a vet.

If you want to go the drug free route, raw pumpkin seeds are great. My dogs absolutely loves this as a snack or added on top of their food.

Flea control is most important for tapeworm prevention. Only drug that will get rid of all of the types of tapes in dogs is praziquantel.

All dogs and cats in household need to be on flea prevention for optimal flea control.
