    1. Hello Tammie, Heartguard plus will treat round and hookworms. I can recommend the Advantage Multi for you. It will treat> Heartworm and fleas, ear mites, roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms. -Sheryl at Revival

  1. Thank you … I appreciate your talks.
    My CH. Standard Poodle chased & caught a wild rabbit. When I saw this happen I gave her the command ” Drop It” and she did! I picked up the dead rabbit and disposed it in my garbage . Several weeks later I was disgusted to see cream rice like worms on her anus! Immediately I called my local Veterinarian. Tapeworms … Yuck! I give my 3 Standard Poodles meds monthly that treats worms ! BUT not Tapeworms. She was given 3 pills at the cost of $38.00 ! My other 2 S.P.S were not effected T.G.
    QUESTION : Why did these cost so much ? Since Standard Poodles are a hunting breed should I keep Tapeworm meds on hand? If so what is the shelf life ? It has been over a month & there has been no reinfestation .

    1. Billie, I so sorry you had an issue with tapeworms. Tapeworms can happen from animals being bitten from fleas/ticks or from a rodent/rabbit that is infected. We recommend treating tapeworms as preventative along with your regularly scheduled deworming every 6 months. If infected it is recommended to repeat the treatment again in 30 days. Some prescription medications may include tapeworm. You can also purchase over the counter medication such as the TapeWorm for Dog> here’s the link for you to look> -Sheryl at Revival

  2. Which worker is best for my puppies , I am now use safe guard
    Should I keep using this wormer are switch to another wormer

    1. Hello Brittney, We do recommend to switch using deworming medications. We recommend using Pyrantel first and then Safeguard afterward. Safeguard will get what the Pyrantel doesn’t get. It also helps to prevent them from building up a resistance to certain medication. -Sheryl at Revival

  3. What is the best new born to 8 week wormers? I give moms interceptor plus. I normally worm puppies at 3 weeks with Pyrantel and again at 5 weeks. Then at 7 weeks I give a interceptor plus.

  4. I have a 15 week old french bulldog puppy that is eating her poop and I have noticed that she is vomiting a lot, could this be some parasit because of eating her stool
    Do you believe that with Panacur she will be relieved?

    1. Hi Yakelin,
      Great question. I reached out to one of our Pet Care Pros for her advice and here is her suggestion -Shelley at Revival

      I’m sorry to hear your 15 week old French bulldog puppy isn’t doing well. Stool eating is usually a habit they form. They eat the stool because it’s warm. The vomiting may be a result of the stool eating or it could also be caused by worms. To prevent stool eating, I would recommend adding FeCease in the food. It makes the stool taste bad so they don’t want to eat it. It’s also very important to clean up any feces immediately to prevent them from eating the stools. Here’s the link for you to look> For deworming, I would recommend the Quad dewormer for you. It’s convenient chewable tablet. Here’s the link for you> If you have more questions, please give us a call at 800-786-4751. -Sheryl, Revival Pet Care Pro
