Q. My puppy has hook worms. I've already seen a vet .. She's not getting any better . What do I need to do? Do I need to take her back on the morning ?
A. Finish the deworming and recheck to make sure all the hookworms are gone. Hookworms may not be her only problem. With hookworms you need to treat once and then retreat again in a few weeks so one dose will generally not work. Puppies also should be dewormed every 3-4 weeks until they are 16 weeks old and then once yearly if you have them. A fecal test will rule out any worm issues.
