How Do I Treat Roundworms

What are the treatments for roundworms in puppies?

Usually Pyrantel or Fenbendazole —- piperazine is an older less effective medication — then the newer heartworm preventatives will keep the puppy from being reinfested

Is albon used to treat roundworms in dogs?

I am not a vet but I heard u can use garlic for that not alot though like a clove a day till better in food though. Also oil of oregano you can get it at the health food store its strong stuff so no more than a drop in food with the garlic clove once a day. Look it up online. Also you can do the clove of garlic cut it in half and do one half in morning food and the other half in the evening with evening food. Good luck. After a few days on that they should run screaming! You can look it up online. If its a small dog just do the half a garlic clove a day. I DIDNT SAY ALOT OF GARLIC IF YOU GIVE A LITTLE BIT LIKE I STATED IT SHOULD DO THE JOB. I GIVE MY DOG GARLIC AND HE IS FINE IT GETS RID OF WORMS, FLEAS AND TICKS. IF YOU DONT WANT TO DO IT AND LISTEN TO ALL THESE WACK JOBS THEN ITS YOUR DECISION BUT IF YOU WANT TO GET RID OF WORMS THEN YOU CAN USE GARLIC.

HOW TO TREAT ROUNDWORM IN MY YARD?

OK SO I HAD TWO PUPPIES IN MY YARD WITH ROUNDWORM. I NO LONGER HAVE THE PUPPIES SINCE I FOUND GOOD HOMES FOR THEM ALREADY BUT I MIGHT STILL HAVE ROUND WORM IN MY YARD. I CUT THE GRASS AND RAKED UP ALL THE POOP I COULD SEE. THERE WAS ALOT OF POOP SUNK IN THE GROUND WHICH SCARES ME A BIT. BUT IM WONDERING WHAT SHOULD I USE TO KILL ANY ROUNDWORM THAT COULD STILL BE IN MY YARD? I HEARD THAT PESTICIDES SOLD AT ANY HOME DEPOT ARE WORTHLESS. SO SHOULD I USE BLEACH? OR WHAT? IF ANYBODY HAS A REALLY GOOD AND EFFECTIVE WAY TO GET RID OF THIS PARASITE LET ME KNOW, I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IT!

How do you clean up after a cat has roundworms, so that the cats and people living with the cats don’t get infected?

Although I haven’t had to deal with this issue (thank god) I’ve done a little research and found that isolation of it’s fecal matter is of the utmost importance. I’m not sure if your cat currently has roundworms or not but if it still does you may want to separate it from the rest of your family. I have seen a little on quarantining and I can see the logic in it, especially with other cats in the house and how often they tend to find their noses in each other’s rears.Here’s a list of steps that I’ve taken from a site and modified in an attempt to mitigate contamination:Step 1Put on a N95-rated dust mask when cleaning up feces infected with roundworms. Protect your skin and clothing with disposable gloves, rubber boots and disposable full-body overalls.Step 2Remove cat feces from the litter box daily to keep your pet's litter box sanitized and prevent further infection. Clean litter pans regularly with a solution of chlorine bleach diluted in water to disinfect the area. If your cat defecates inside your home, remove the feces immediately.Step 3Lightly spray any dried feces with water to avoid dust inhalation of roundworm eggs. This will also keep the feces and eggs from breaking apart.Step 4Cut away contaminated insulation if your cat has defecated in an attic or area with exposed insulation. Misting the area first will prevent dust inhalation. Scoop the insulation in a heavy-duty garbage bag and dispose of the feces.Step 5Boil any instruments used to remove feces, such as a scraper or shovel. Boiling water is one of the most effective ways to decontaminate equipment and kill roundworm eggs.Step 6Pour boiling water on floors and decks to kill any existing roundworm eggs. Use caution when cleaning with very hot water.Step 7Steam clean your carpets to remove roundworm eggs. Once dry, quarantine your cat to another room and sprinkle salt on the dry carpet. Allow it to sit for a few days and vacuum. Throw away the waste from steam cleaning or vacuuming immediately after pickup.I hope this helps!

Are roundworms and Tapeworms the same in cats?

No. That is different. You have to get a special pill to fix tapeworms. Here is a link to where you can buy it online. I used this kind on my cat and it got rid of them within a day or two. That does sound like what your cat has. Good luck.

Roundworms: 6 animals that are under vet treatment!! need advice and some answers?

sorry if this is in the wrong category, but the other day we took in this
stray calico kitten, hardly more than skin and bones, she was slightly
bloated so we took her to our vet, she has what they believe to be
roundworms, well that was last week, they gave us medicine to give
my other cats to, but now the kitten has them, my 6month old cat has
them, and my dog possibly dogs! how can I get rid of them? right now
we are spending 50$ every two weeks just for cat treatment, my dogs have an
oppointment tommorrow, I have 4 of them, plus 2 cats what a heck
of a vet bill, I mean of course I will come up with the money but is
there anything else I can do?
I mean 50$ per dog if not more plus cat treatment! thanks for all your
help.

p.s just wanted to make sure you guys understood they are under vet
treatment, but 6 animals at 50$ each!!! I CAN come up with the money
each week if i need to.
also does this put them a double risk for heartworm?!!

does anybody know if guinea pigs can get worms? thanks

Could a worm in stool be a roundworm?

It sounds like you need to go to your doctor as soon as possible.From the size of the worm it sounds like you have an Ascaris infection. It's unlikely that you got the infection at the restaurant you mention, unless you ate a raw salad. Infections are relatively common, even in temperate climates, but fairly benign. The worm will probably not hurt you physically, although as Roberts and Janovy point out in Foundations of Parasitology: "The psychological trauma induced in one who vomits a 45-cm ascarid is difficult to quantify." The real problem is that the worms usually come in numbers and there will be at least a few females. Male ascarids have a hooked posterior that the female crawls through to mate and, being worms of very little brain, females will crawl through nearly any passage the right size. Most troubling would be the bile duct or trachea, but should they reach farther up "they may simply exit through the nose or mouth, causing a predictable consternation." Male on the left, female on the right. These are about the thickness of a pencil or earthworm. Your doctor will be able to give you a medication that kills the worms. Unfortunately they will have to come out, but I'm sure you'd rather that happen on your terms rather than theirs. I also highly recommend Foundations of Parasitology. It's a good read.
