Capillariasis in Dogs

ADVERTISEMENT

 

Treatment

 

Treatment is often not recommended if the dog is not ill. However, if symptoms of infection are present, the drugs fenbendazole or ivermectin can be used to treat the infection.

 

Living and Management

 

For dogs staying in a kennel that is housed on soil, replacing the soil with an alternative substrate or surface (such as sand, gravel, or concrete) may reduce infection rates of this type of dog worm.
