 Deworming Your Dog


Dewormer for dogs comes in various different forms; liquid, pills, paste and powder.  All dewormers are measured by weight so it is important to know the weight of you dog.  Overestimating is better than underestimating because not giving you dog enough dewormer will act as if you didn't give any. 

Now all dewormer no matter what form should be ingested at one time and on an empty stomach.  You should know what its the best form to give to your dog because that will determine what form of dewormer you should buy.  Its like picking out medicines for yourself, is it easier to drink the liquid or swallow the pill.  Remember when giving the dewormer that they ingest all the medicine at one time so it you need to mix it in with a hotdog or a can of dog food its best to do so to ensure the medicine is ingested.

Also keep in mind that the different forms of dewormers take care of different types of worms.  Below is a list of the different type of worms and a little information about the worms.
