Wormer

Post by ClareGilby on Tue May 10 2016, 21:13

I have used Milbimax wormer for years now. Is this still the best one to use? I want something that covers lung worm and heartworm. What do others use? Thanks. Big Grin hurry up!

milbemax doesn't 'cure' lungworm, but it does 'discourage' it. i don't know about heartworm, as we don't have a problem with it in the UK.

advocate deals with lungworm (again, i don't know about heartworm), but must be applied monthly, which is a lot of harsh chemicals to use on your dog if there isn't a specific problem in your area.

I don't worm or flea Zeus unless I find there's a reason to. Like GillyBrent said, it's just a load of harsh chemicals on your dog, far too much and far too often.

I do put garlic in Zeus's food though, as it's a natural wormer.

nexgard + heartgard

Post by ashlyn on Wed May 11 2016, 15:20

I use nexgard + heartgard combination to cover all. If you don't know what to give to your dog, that combination might help you cover internal and external bugs including lungworms, heartworms, fleas and ticks all together.

I'm pretty sure drontal doesn't cover lungworm or heartworm?

I know Milbemax covers lungworm, which comes from they old slugs in the garden. I think it appears to be the most popular one. I used to use drontal which is good but my vet said Milbemax covers the lungworm as well and I don't think it is any dearer. Thanks for all the comments, helps me decide what to do. xx
