About the only brand that kills Whipworms
on September 4, 2011
We have a large pit bull that somehow got a bad case of Whipworms as diagnosed by our vet. Unfortunately, we can't afford to visit the vet 10x a year (as one reviewer boasted), especially since we run a dog & cat rescue. So, our vet recommended Safe-guard to kill the whipworms in case our dog got reinfected. Our vet said this is about the only OTC wormer out there for dogs to kill whipworms. Usually, we use Happy Jack (which is an excellent wormer) which kills only tape and hookworms.
Our pit bull Hutch isn't a picky eater at all, so adding this powder to a can of wet dog food worked great. He gobbled every last drop up. After giving him the doses over the 3 days I could tell he was feeling much better. After a month he is still doing great.
For Whipworms I'd definitely suggest this wormer. The only drawback to me is that you have to buy so many boxes for a very large dog. Though, I'm very glad that I am able to buy this without going back to the vet if any of our dogs ever got Whipworms again.
