I'm currently looking after a dobe x german shepherd pup who found herself in a bit of a bad situation. She's not going to be staying forever (honest!
) just until she's put some weight on and the holidays are over. She came to us full of worms about 2 weeks ago, naturally she went straight to the vets for a check up and was wormed then and also had her first vaccination. We're going back to the vets today for her second jab and I was wondering if she should be wormed again? My vet said at the first visit to worm her again in a month, does that seem right for a puppy who has had a pretty heavy infestation?
She has put weight on over the past 2 weeks but still seems skinny and her belly sort of bulges after eating then goes down again? I've got no experience with worms, my older 2 girls were treated by their breeder as puppies and have been regularly treated with us since.
She's roughly 11 weeks old and weighed 7kg (15lbs) at her first vet visit 2 weeks ago and is now just over 9kg (19lbs)
