Parasites get active in late pregnancy when females are heavy pregnant and stressed. This is the time when moms can least resist parasites. Babies are born with sterile guts and moms seed their guts with good bacteria to assist with digestion. However, she can also seed them with parasites. Rounds, hooks, whips, coccidia, and giardia can all be given to the puppy in the nursing period. As the parasites take in the mother's nutrition, they'll also take in the dewormer - meaning we can kill them effectively. Mom may be the source of these parasites, but the parasites can be controlled. Fenbendazole is labeled for pregnant moms. It not only gets the worms, but it also kills giardia. By cleaning up the mother in late pregnancy, you can also solve the parasite issues for your puppies later!
  • After 50 days gestation, deworm 3 days with Safeguard® or Panacur® C to remove as many parasites from mom before birth as possible.


Treat vs Prevention:Cocci Guard is added at 2 cups per 40 lbs of puppy food. Feed the last two weeks of pregnancy. This will decrease the number of coccidia transferred to babies. Decoquinate works by preventing coccidia from reproducing so they die of attrition (old age). Cocci-Guard is safe for pregnant dogs! Cocci-Guard is continued after weaning in the puppy.

CocciGuard is an easy way to prevent coccidia - simply add it to your puppy's food. The mother should also be fed puppy food with Cocci Guard when you bring her to the whelping area two weeks before birth. This decreases the number of coccidia the mother can give to the puppies. When you wean the puppies onto Cocci Guard, it controls the issue until you move them to their new home.

You can’t get rid of them so learn to manage them…

Intestinal parasites have been around since dinosaurs and are not going away – you need 

to manage them. Parasites do not want to kill your kitten or puppy; they want to use them as 

a dinner plate. They do not mind dragging pets down, causing rough hair coats, or anemia! 

Managing your parasites is not about deworming more or with more products. It is about using 

the correct dewormer at the right time to get the biggest effect for our time and money.

Upper GI:

It helps to know the parasites we are targeting. Rounds and hooks are in the small intestine and 

adults are easy to get rid of as most dewormers are active in the small intestine. 

Roundworms are 18 inches long and look like spaghetti. If puppies or kittens are vomiting

parasites, it is roundworms. If you have a lot of roundworms, they can be seen in the stool. 

Rounds are usually digested before they get through the intestinal track. 

Hookworms are tiny (½” long) and difficult to see without a microscope. They become a small cyst on the wall of the

intestine sitting in a protected scar tissue egg. They come out of the “scar tissue egg” when they detect pregnancy,

milking, or removal of adults from the gut tube. 

Both these parasites can migrate through tissue, especially the liver. They get back to the intestine by migrating to the lungs

where they are coughed up and swallowed. Once back in the intestine, they complete the life cycle and reproduce.

Parasites can play a role in the 8 week old puppy cough! Migrating stages are resistant to dewormer when out of the intestinal

tube! Once you get rid of the adults in the intestine, the larvae can pop out of the tissue and set up in the intestine you just cleared.

Both rounds and hooks can infect humans and must be managed out of our puppies and kittens before sending them

to a new home!

Lower GI:

Tapes and whipworms are in the large intestine. They are about 30 feet down from the mouth so getting dewormer to stay active 

for that distance is difficult. 

Tapes are as different from other intestinal parasites as cats are from dogs! They mostly live on dog waste and can

cause colitis and irritation of the rectal area. Treatment with praziquantel will eliminate adults.

Egg packets are passed and look like rice in the feces or on the rectal area. These eggs have to mature in an intermediate

host (fleas, mice, or birds) and once that host is eaten by the dog or cat they get tapeworms. If you prevent them from getting

the intermediate host, you stop tapeworms!

Whipworms are killed by few dewormers. Preventing re-infection is the key with whipworms that are directly infective. They

will seed an exercise area down, mature, and another dog or cat will ingest them. Raised decks prevent the re-infections and

break the lifecycle. New additions to our cattery or kennel need to be cleared of whipworms to prevent introduction.

Other Problem Parasites:

Giardia and coccidia are active throughout the intestine, but considered a small intestinal parasite. 

Both coccidia and giardia are tiny and are diarrhea causing opportunists. Something starts the diarrhea and they keep it going.

Coccidia control involves keeping the numbers so low in the kennel that you rarely need to treat and prevention drugs are

effective. Much the same is true of giardia. • We try and get rid of giardia, but it always seems to be around so
