Prescription Dewormer for Dogs

Prescription dewormers can be given to your pup by your veterinarian to help treat specific parasites. There are plenty of dog dewormers but none are effective against all parasites. Attempting to deworm your pup at home can prove costly and ineffective. Your veterinarian will run tests to determine if your pet has contracted any internal parasites and will prescribe a dewormer accordingly. In the absence of a positive fecal test for worm eggs, your veterinarian will select a dewormer based on the environment surrounding your dog and your pets lifestyle habits (hiking, traveling or camping). Many dewormers will need to be given to your pup twice, once to remove adult worms and again to remove any worms that were still in the larval stage during the first dose. Petco offers prescription dewormers in chewable and flavor tablet forms.
