    ok seeing as i have had Stan for 3 years i should know this by now but up until now ive never had to worry about the worming because the vets always notified me of when they were due but since changing vets that doesnt happen any more, so….

    how often are you supposed to worm a dog?

    i thought it was every 6 months but i keep getting told to do it every 3 months.
    he gets the Drontol wormer and i feel that having every 3 months is a bit much ???

    A lot depends on your dog’s lifestyle.

    Your dogs are around horses and livestock a lot, it may be that he is exposed to a higher risk of worms and may be better every 3 months; ask your vet; alternatively you could have a worm count done however that usually works out much more expensive than worming

    sweetypye would that still be the case if the horses have been wormed?

    so i would need to do him every 3 months then?

    Horses get different worms. It is up to you, do what you think is best for the environmental conditions and diet he is on bearing in mind the pros and cons.

    By the time you actually SEE worms, the dog will have a very heavy infestation.

    okay im even more confused now 😀 considering that we know that there are foxes down were the horses are and that Stan has for some reason decided that he wants to walk around with horse poo in his mouth :vomit: it would be better to do him every 3 months to make sure he is covered

    I use Diatomaceous Earth (food grade) 1 spoonful once a week mixed in a raw egg or some yoghurt
    Diamonaceous earth is fosilized diatoms from the sea and looks like unrefined talc, you have to mix it in well with the egg or yoghurt
