• My dog has had chronic diarrhea. The vet isn't sure what is causing it... We are treating for whipworm as a preventative/precaution right now. At this point... we are hoping that is what is causing the diarrhea. How do we know we are successfully getting rid of whipworm? When will we see signs that its getting better (if whipworm is the cause)? We are about to start our second treatment of the whipworm medication.

    Hi Allie, I recommend that you call and talk to your local veterinarian about this question. When you can expect to see results and knowing that the whipworms are gone will depend on the exact treatment being used. Your vet knows your pet’s medical history and they will be able to give you the best advice on this.
