am not a veterinarian and the following is what I use to treat my
dogs. Use the following at your on risk! I have been using the following methods for over 10 years.
For the removal and control of mature infections of large strongles, pinworms, large
roundworms, and small strongyles in dogs and puppies we use Pyrantel Pamoate. We give
1 cc per 10 pounds every 3 months. If worms are seen we give the same dosage for three
consecutive days (per Vet).
For the treatment of Giardia I first begin with a 5 day treatment of Panacur C (fenbendazole). I also recommend a 10 day treatment following the Panacur with Metronidazole. The dose I use is 15mg/lbs. of body weight twice a day. You can buy Metronidazole from www.revivalanimal.com under the name fish-zole. Panacur C is also a very effective dewormer.
I use a prevention treatment on all my pups about every two to three weeks until
old. I give them Di-Methox 12.5% solution mixed with Dyne. Di-methox 12.5% is the exact
same thing as Albon 12.5%, but is much cheaper. Dyne is a high calorie liquid dietary
supplement that will help increase the pups energy much quicker. I mix 5 ounces of Dyne to
4 ounces of Di-Methox 12.5%. This mixture produces the same thing you will get from the
vet called Albon 5%, but will be getting it without a prescription and at a much cheaper
price. For prevention I give 2.5cc or 1/2 teaspoon per 5 pounds (5 cc/1 teaspoon per 10
pounds) by mouth once a day for 5 days. If a pup has the coccidia he must be treated for
14 to 21 days by giving the same dosage as above.

We vaccinated our puppies with Duramune 5-way at 8 weeks., 11 weeks, and again at 14 weeks. All
dogs will receive a booster shot once a year. 5-way protects against Distemper, Adenovirus
Type 2, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus. DO NOT give Chihuahua puppies Corona virus or Lepto, puppies have DIED from severe reactions!
There are several
places you can buy shots. I buy them from www.revivalanimal.com
HOT SPOTS OR SKIN IRRITATIONS (WITH HAIR LOSS):
For Hot Spots or skin irritations that cause dogs to loose hair we use Betadine. It absolutely
works wonders. You will not find anything in the store that works faster. Usually after a
couple of days of treatment you will see improvement. Betadine is cheap (under $15) and a
bottle will last you for a long time. We purchase the Betadine from www.countrysupply.com
For Kennel cough we use Tetracycline 250 mg. We give 1 capsule per day for 5 days.
During the coughing time we also give them Robitussin Cough Syrup using the children
dosage (advised by VET). We usually purchase the Tetracycline from www.vetdepot.com or www.revivalanimal.com
