They work, sometimes, but if your dog is to picky it doesn't do any good. However, I've had luck sicking it in a small peace of hot dog, just cut the hotdog in to bite size peaces and act like it's a treat. Get the dog excited and doing good and toss him a treat with medicine.
On the other side,
I have 1 dog that nothing works on, not chewables, not hot dog. I have just open his mouth and push the pill back in his throat. For this I purchase the smallest pill I can. I don't like doing it, but if it is back far enough he cant spit it out. If you grab his mouth correctly then you don't have to worry about him biting you either. I do it with a full size Doberman.
Pumpkin seeds are used fresh, raw and without salt. They have long been known as an anti-parasitic (gets rid of parasites) in humans as well as dogs. They are not poisonous and contain many valuable nutrients.
Food-grade diatomaceous earth is an excellent parasitic, it isn't poisonous, and can be given for several days without problems. Use as much as 1 heaping tsp. for every five lbs. of animal weight.
Black walnut is a very effective cure for intestinal parasites, but it can be poisonous if taken too often and in large amounts. It doesn't take more than a few mg per lb. for each dog.
This is another common herb that's often used for getting rid of parasites--but like black walnut, it can be poisonous due to a high level of tannins. Careful use of wormwood will produce the desired results, but it should not be used often.
Is It Worms?
There are many signs of worms, from bloated stomach to bloody stool or excessive coughing. Worms are a serious condition if left untreated because they soak up all of the vital nutrients a dog needs to survive. However, the signs of a worm infestation are similar to many illnesses, and some are equally lethal. Know what you're dealing with before attempting to treat it. Take a fecal sample to your veterinarian to check for worms for a very small fee.
It is widely believed that giving
your dog raw meat of any kind will eventually give it worms; however dogs are
meant to be wild and what would they do if they were in the wild? Exactly they
would more than likely kill something and eat it. That being said I always give
my dog chicken skin but I do boil it first.
