    Default Worming Tablets?

    HI,

    I worm the dogs every Three months and usually give them Drontal.

    Last year I couldn't get Drontal once and I was given Milbamax and my two boys got severe tummy upset and horrible watery poo after taking them. They both had to have medication to clear it up. It may have been co-incidence but I haven't used them since, just in case.

    Tonight the vets had no Drontal and won't have for a while they gave me Zantal.

    Anyone tried them?

    Hi Pippa,
    I've never given Zantal so I can't comment.I've given both milbamax and drontal without any ill effects.My preference is for stronghold which you pour onto the spot between their shoulders which deals with worms and fleas simultaneously.
    Don't worry about using a new wormer,I'd imagine it's perfectly effective.
    No ill effects yet?

    Hi Teresa,
    can you look up the ingredients on the net and compare? otherwise, if you are unsure or worried then I would suggest buying Drontal from another Vet. Alternatively, phone the Vet and explain your concerns about giving a different wormer and ask for advice/ reassurance

    You've reminded me that I must raid the kitchen cupboards for my milbemax stash, the dogs won't even notice they've been treated but the cats won't talk to me for a week

    You have to tell us why now. My curiosity is getting the better of me
