What is the best dewormer for rabbits?

I personally do not have that much experience with bunny rabbits :) But according to Dr. Allison Vanderhoof, a very dear veterinary friend of mine and has a rabbit of her own, says that parasites are actually pretty uncommon in rabbits. Rabbits do not have as many issues with parasites like other animals. If you do want to use a preventative you can use Revolution (Selemectin) which is a topical product. Tapeworms can be seen in rabbits, due to fleas and you can use Praziquantel in these cases. 

Should I keep my dog/cat on flea/tick preventative year round?

In Oklahoma/Texas and a few of the surrounding states, I recommend that you should keep them on a preventative year round. We just do not get cold enough winters to kill fleas/ticks.  Remember, fleas can live inside your house! So, you could have fleas year round.  We want to “prevent” ever seeing any fleas/ticks! If you don’t see any on your pet it means that the product is working.

My cat won’t eat, what should I do?

The best thing to do in this situation is to take your cat to your veterinarian.  Cats are very different than dogs in the fact that cats tend to hide their symptoms for a longer period of time.  It is also easier to notice when a dog goes a day without eating whereas a cat may go several days without eating before you realize it, which could increase the severity of whatever is ailing them. Always ere on the side of seeing the vet when your pet isn’t exhibiting normal behavior.


How often does my goat need to be de-wormed?

Goats can be very tough creatures to own.  Goats are very resistant to MANY deworming products.  It is very important to check your goat’s mucous membranes (MM), by pulling down their lower eyelid. You should see a nice pink color.  If their MMs are nice and pink, you do not need to deworm them.  If their MMs are pale pink or white (anemic), you need to deworm them.  It is good practice to inspect your goats every two weeks and only deworm those that need it. Consult with your veterinarian on various deworming products.  Ivermectin does not have very good efficacy against parasites. I personally like to use Cydectin.  Check out this link for a helpful chart:  Goat Dewormer Chart.
