    Default Damn stupid worm meds!

    Advantage Multi is a once-a-month prescription medication for dogs that controls fleas, prevents heartworm infection, and kills intestinal parasites.

    This lead me to believe it kills all worms NOT! Not wonder everyone (but me is dropping weight)

    Kills adult fleas
    * Also de-worms your dog of intestinal hookworms, roundworms, and whipworms

    OOPS not tape worms, so tonight I checked Meelah's poop and found it full of tape worm segments Guess who's getting "treats" Friday! They don't have fleas when I wash them but of course who knows if they swallow one when they are outside?

    I knew they were dropping weight but thought this was just the 1/4 servings I feel so bad!

    How long does Meelah have to be on tapeworm kill meds? How much weight did she lose? Might want to get her on a vitamin supplement as the tapeworm might have taken out nutrients Meelah's body needs. Poor baby.

    I just give my fosters a pill when I see the tapeworms and one more pill 2 or 3 weeks later and that's it (that is if they are still at my house in the weeks after the first pill).
