I don't understand, here we go AGAIN!! Tucker has tape worms again. I just picked him up from the groomers, and he was going to the bathroom. BOOM, little white worm on his butt again. It seems like just last month we got rid of them! The vet has given me the medicine to treat him three times. They go away (well I don't seem them), then they are back.
So I call them today, and she says "well he just had a fecal, and was clear, since it's tape worms again, just come in and we'll give you some more medication".. So from what I understand they are from eating a flea.. He is on Frontline, and I give it to him every month on time. I've had the worst time with him having fleas. He's not ate up with them, but I'll see a few here and there. When he gets a bath there will be maybe 2 or 3.. I understand with all this rain we've had, and the heat they are probably flourishing.
Ben and Maddie will have a few here and there as well, yet they are clear and worm free. I even paid for day boarding so I could fog my house.
I do live in the woods, and have a LOT of wild animals, though I did treat the yard the best I could. I'm at a loss with this, and don't understand why he keeps getting them? Any suggestions, advice? There has to be something cheaper, or another way to prevent/get rid of these things!! It is so freaking nasty...
