Deworming is a must for all puppies be it a small breed or a large breed. So some breeders do bring their puppies to the veterinarian for deworming. But you can actually do the deworming yourself. One good brand for deworming puppies is the Worm Ban.
Worm Ban is manufactured by Troy Laboratories. It is an anthelmintic suspension for the control of roundworms and hookworms in puppies and small dogs. Its composition is Pyrantel Embonate 14.4mg/mL.
What is the prescribed amount for puppies?
Just give 0.5mL per 500g bodyweight at 2, 4, 8 and 12 weeks of age and thereafter every 3 months or as recommended by a veterinary surgeon.
How do you administer Worm Ban?
Since it is a suspension, you must shake it well before using. Fasting or purging of the puppies is not necessary. This means Worm ban does not need to be given on an empty stomach. You can administer it directly into the mouth or you can mix it with food. But I prefer giving it directly to the puppies.
Unused portion can still be used as long as it is not yet expired and is stored properly. Better check the expiry date when buying. Store it below 30°C (room temperature). Worm Ban comes in 50 ml bottle and costs around Php 400.00 to Php 450.00. If you are interested in buying Troy Worm Ban, you can buy it through online petshop.
