In horses with severe infections, treatment may result in mild, transient colic and loose faeces due to the destruction of the tapeworms.

Congratulations to the winner of this month's Question
of the Month,
who wins $100 for the following question:
I have 12 yr. old Male Black Lab that weighs 133 LB & was just diagnosed with heart worms. Are there any other options for him other than the Immiticide injections? Iï¿½m worried about this option because of the risk with his age. A couple veterinarians have told me to treat with heartgard for 12 months & may get negative test results in that time if I was needing a more affordable & safer option? Only other problem, Jordan has arthritis in his hip & currently takes 2 Rovera 100 mg. tablets dai...?
