Ok, I have wormed all my dogs with Valbazen wormer many times before, vet gave me the ok and other breeders, goat breeders that is says they have always wormed their dogs with Valbazen. Well, I have a new puppy who came from a litter of puppies that dident get the best care, healthy looking but never wormed or shots or anything and were fed VERY cheap adult dog food, like a 50lb bag cost $6, very very cheap. Well she got here and got great food and her shots and everything, then I remebered I never wormed her, so 2 days ago I gave her valbazen along with my other dogs. Everyone is fine except her, she sleeps in my room with me at night and she had an accident last night, got up to clean it up and in her poo she had some of the biggest tape worms I have EVER seen, and I mean they were freakin huge!!! And the gross part about it, they were still moving!!!!!! :sick: So I know the poor baby has a major infestation, color is good and she is hydrated, I can pull the scuff of her neck up and snaps back fine. She does not have an appatite right now and she is throwing up, not alot but when she eats she throws it back up........ Now this girl is a chow hound, so her not eating is some red flags. I offered her some sandwhich meat ( oven turkey) and she liked that, but after 30 minutes she threw it back up. WHat should I do!

Well the vet is closed now, she will be ok in the morning, she is looking like she is a little bit more alert, so I am thinking that she just had a massive infestation of them and as they die it is making her sick, but since her color and temp and she is drinking her water and isent dehydrated I think she just has a bad upset stomach from it. I will call my vet in the morning and he will help me over the phone or make me get some medicine off of him lol. What about stuff like red cell, or pepto bismal, anything you think I should give her to just help keep her up and going and something to sooth the stomach?

Well everyone here has been on a worming schedule, and I have 2 indoor cats. But since the other dogs are on worming schedules should I give everyone wormer every 14 days or just the puppy?
