Dog Health Topics
Almost all puppies acquire roundworms through their mother's milk. Dogs can also acquire them by eating rodents or ingesting infected soil. A heavy accumulation of roundworms in a puppy can even lead to death.
Signs of roundworm disease include vomiting, diarrhea, bloated belly, and loss of appetite. If your dog has any of these symptoms, call your veterinarian immediately. Be sure to bring a stool sample for the veterinarian to examine.
Both INTERCEPTOR® (milbemycin oxime) Flavor Tabs® and SENTINEL® (milbemycin oxime/lufenuron) Flavor Tabs® are indicated for the removal and control of adult roundworms (Toxocara canis).
As with other heartworm preventives, dogs must be tested for heartworm prior to using SENTINEL Flavor Tabs or INTERCEPTOR Flavor Tabs. In a small percentage of dogs treated with SENTINEL Flavor Tabs, digestive, neurologic, and skin side effects may occur. In a small percentage of dogs treated with INTERCEPTOR Flavor Tabs, digestive and neurologic side effects may occur. Click HERE for full product information for INTERCEPTOR Flavor Tabs.
