Dogs can be infected with round worms, tape worms, whip worms or giardiasis, etc. Some require treatment every 2-3 weeks until negative faecal test to break lifecycle and completely control intestinal parasites. Some of the parasites need 5-7 days course of medications. Therefore it is suggested to get faecal test to identify the parasite for specific therapy and control.
