Hookworms and roundworms can be a common problem in puppies and dogs that are exposed to infected environments. These worms can even be passed to humans! PetArmor® Sure Shot® 2X (pyrantel pamoate) controls and prevents reinfestation of roundworms (Toxocara canis and Toxacaris leonina) and hookworms (Ancylostoma caninum and Uncinaria stenocephala). Easy-to-use liquid formula.
HOW DO I KNOW IF MY DOG HAS WORMS?In the case of many intestinal parasites, but not with all parasites, your pet may expel adult worms with their bowel movements. If you can collect a fresh stool (fecal) sample for your veterinarian, it will make it easier for them to make a positive identification. Your veterinarian will prepare a sample and examine it under a microscope to look for the immature form (eggs) of the intestinal worms.
WHAT TYPE OF WORMS DOES THIS MEDICATION TREAT?PetArmor® for Dogs Sure Shot® 2X (pyrantel pamoate) removes large roundworms (T. canis and T. leonina) and hookworms (A. caninum and U. stenocephala). It also prevents reinfestation of roundworms (T. canis).
HOW FREQUENTLY DO I GIVE THIS TO MY DOG?It is recommended that puppies be treated at 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, and 10 weeks of age. Adult dogs should be routinely treated at monthly intervals to protect against environmental reinfection. Retreatment of adult dogs may be necessary at monthly intervals as determined by laboratory fecal examinations or in animals kept in known contaminated quarters.
HOW LONG DOES THE PRODUCT TAKE TO WORK?Depending on your dog’s infestation it could take up to 7 days. Within 24 to 48 hours you should notice an increase in your dog’s stool. If possible collect droppings as soon as possible to be disposed of. If you need to retreat your dog, we recommend consulting with your veterinarian and have them perform a fecal test on your dog to rule out any other issues.
WHAT IF I GIVE THIS TO MY DOG AND HE STILL HAS WORMS?We recommend that you follow up with your veterinarian after treatment for a follow up fecal exam.
