Hello, I am not sure if this is the correct place for posting this... Anyhow I have a 9 week 2 day old lurcher puppy. I took him to the vets for a health check and to be flea'd and wormed on Monday 22 June. I was given Advocate and I applied it to him when I got home. On Friday 26 June he vomited a couple of worms (roundworms) and then I noticed one in his poo. They were alive. I called the vet and they prescribed me some stuff for tapeworms just incase as these aren't covered by Advocate. Anyway on Saturday there were one or two worms in each of his poos. Last night he went to bed at 8pm and didn't move until 5am today for the toilet. He wouldn't eat or drink and went back to sleep at 5am. I called the emergency vets and explained he was lethargic, not eating/drinking and has worms. The vet gave him an anti sickness injection (even though he had only been sick once on Friday). The vet told me that the worms will start to decrease in numbers and frequency. Around 4 hours after the vets he vomited around 10 worms, then there were around 10-15 hanging out of his bottom. My concern is that the Advocate taken 7 days ago hasn't worked as the worms are still coming out alive - surely they should be dead by now?! I rang the vet back and he said they cannot give him anything for worms because he will overdose him. However, he told me that they should be decreasing not increasing. Something in my gut is telling me it's not right. Please can someone help me as I am going out of my mind with worry. Should the worms be coming out dead/paralysed after 7 days of deworming?
