They sound horrible ! Poor wee girl. But the medication seems to have been effective which is the important thing. Did that outsized vomit clear them completely or did you have to repeat the dose ?
I must admit, over here we really only have to guard against round worm for which I apply Advocate to the back of the neck once a month. The Drontal is just to be on the safe side.
It was an awful gross surprise, and it did seem to clear up the problem FOR THAT TIME. I did a little research and learned that tapes gotten from fleas are different than those gotten from rabbits, so I bet these were the rabbit kind.
After that, whenever I knew of the dogs getting a rabbit, the vet would just give me tape medicine. (at least once a year)
That was gross too because that same girl had a rabbit head in her mouth and kept running away from me once. All I did was pray she wouldn't puncture the eyes!
Basenjis are gross, don't you just love them?
