• Deworming a puppy , I want to get some wormer ASAP for my new puppy. Which is the best stuff to get from the store today?

    Hi Britini,
    If you are concerned that your puppy has worms, I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian as soon as possible. Intestinal parasites in puppies is concerning as it can cause serious disease. In addition, other diseases can cause symptoms that are very similar to intestinal parasites. Your vet can examine your pet and then talk to you about the care that he needs. They may recommend a fecal test to diagnose the type of worm that is present. The dewormer that will work best will depend on the type of worm present.
