    Default Do you worm your bully?

    Im sotting here and wondering how many of you worm their bullies and other dogs regularly ? My vets have a lungworm awareness month and from
    What i gathered in uk Drontal worming tablet does not offer protection against lungworm -which can be deadly ,we use Milbemax (prescription only) worming tablet that cover us against all worms every 3 months
    It kind of scares me as our babies can pick up all sorts and this is why we use worming tablets.

    There are other worms but lungworm can be fatal -we always wormed our dogs to keep them healthy and protected from those that Haven't been wormed

    According to what I found on "google" Lungworms are worms (several types of worms) that migrate to the lungs and cause various respiratory problems. It's becoming more common in the UK but most cases are still in the southern regions of England.
    According to the CDC: here in the US, there have only been a few cases reported in the lower 48 states. Hawaii has had more, but the number is still low.
    @Pati Robins Thanks for the info.

    In U.S. it is more common in goats and cattle.

    The general recommendation here is to deworm dogs only if they show symptoms (in order to avoid spreading the problem of drug resistance). But I'll ask the vet about it when Castor soon goes for his 1-year vaccination. Thanks for the info!
