Oops, yes, I did mean Stefrobts. I have a Swiss cheese brain these days. Please accept my apologies to you, Shari, for the misquote. But, I do believe we need to receive these posts in a wholly welcoming manner, especially when we have a subforum designated for them. ~G

mash the pill and mix it into Evis's dinner, He won't even know it's there. Your cat should also have worm medicine.

Yes, other animals can be the source of the worms however mosqutoes(?) are the most often cause. Scold your vet as it should have told you all this

Yes, please let us know if any of these suggestions work. Dogs are as individual as children. What will work for one may not work for another!

My dog contracted tape worms and my vet said he couldn't get them from other animals, exactly. Just from a dirty kennel. He said my dog probably got them from the whelping bed. I don't know, I think he might have got them from either squirrels or Canadian Geese since he seemed to have a fondness for their poop as a pup. I know, grosses me out to think about it, but they aren't born with Emily Post manners.

I wanted to wish you a warm welcome to the forums and say I think the earlier social snafu was because yours was such a unique and unexpected first post for our little group.

I think the suggestions that have been offered are good ones, especially the one about what works for one dog doesn't always work for another. I always just open my dog's mouth by pinching between his molars (wrap my hand over the top of his muzzle) and using my thumb, push the pill deep in his throat being careful not to scrape his mouth or throat with my fingernail. Then message his throat 'till he sticks his tongue out indicating that he has swallowed.

For me, the direct approach is most effective, but then I am the alfa-male in the family.

Gee wheez, can't have any fun.

Ok. Rusty was my 17 yr. old 15" high poodle.
That's right I had a poodle. Rusty rode around in the truck like a German Shepard.
Right up until I had to put him down he would take a pill but not swallow. If I turned my back he would spit it out. I learned that a quick pat on the end of his nose would make him take it down every time.

There. no more wise guy. And no poodle jokes.

Just had to clear up one worm fact. Tape worms are spread by FLEAS. Hookworms come from the ground thru foot pads or from mom. There are many other worms but your vet should have checked this out for you and also asked you questions about what you saw. Be that as it may, some of those large worm pills are liquid filled capules and can't be cut up. Be brave and open his mouth, stick it as far back as you can, close the mouth and run the neck until he swallows. If this doesn't work for you, go back to your vet and get a shot or a liquid.

You are correct. When I took my cocker in for his annual this past Saturday, I asked the vet for my own info and she said that tape worms come from flees and it was probably flees in the whelping bed or a flee that jumped on him, bit him and jumped back off outside that gave him the tape worms since I had used Front Line on him since the day I brought him in for his physical exam on the day I brought him home from the breader.

The presence of tape worms was confirmed when he was a puppy by a stool analysis in the vets office. He was diagnosed with tape worms a few weeks after I brought him home. He was house trained by then but I always cleaned up his poop in the yard because he preferred to go just off of the patio. I had noticed the small white rice like eggs (?) in his stool one day and called the vet. They wanted me to bring him is so I did. It just so happened he was displaying behavior that indicated he had to go while he was in the exam room so one of the vet techs and I went outside and he went and she retrieved with a plastic sampler device that looked like the eye of a giant plastic sewing needle. She indicated it would have been used to "go in after" a sample if he hadn't provided one for us. They gave me a worm medicine to give him and it seems it may have been just one treatment. Since then his monthly heartworm tabs have been a chore to give him. Our other dog took HeartGuard and loved them...he thought they were treats. This one spits the Sentinel out so I have to do the thumb down the throat and rub 'till he swallows. Just remember the dog hasn't swallowed until he/she licks his/her nose.
