Verm X or similar worming product for puppy?
I’ve been avidly reading this forum for the past two years since we got our first mini schnauzer. I’ve learnt loads - especially from the wise words of Zeta1454 and her knowledge in particular has given me confidence in continuing with the healthy and holistic way of caring for my mini, which I had begun many years ago with our previous dog, a feisty patterdale cross!
We are now lucky enough to have a new 11 week old mini schnauzer and I’m keen to use as few Pharmaceutical chemicals as possible.
She was wormed by her breeder using Panacur (3 weeks) Drontal(5 weeks) Panacur (8 weeks).
I’m keen to start her on Verm X so last week used a wormcount.com test for both general and lungworms and both came back clear which was great news.
I’m keen to start her on Verm X ASAP who I use for our current mini but don’t know whether I should continue with pharmaceutical wormers for a while? Could she still be harbouring maternal worms?
Both the breeder and vet are suggesting I continue with pharmaceutical wormers till at least 6 months od.
She will only be allowed on the patio until she is a few months older as I know how keen minis are to put Everything in their mouths! And we check the patio each morning to ensure it is clean.
Verm X has worked well for our current mini as has Billy No mates which I will be using on our puppy once she is 16 weeks old.
I’m seeing the vet this week for her final vaccination so want to be as informed as possible. Many thanks.
