Roundworms in Dogs
Treatment for roundworms is completed on an outpatient basis using specific drugs to kill the roundworms and the roundworm larvae. In severe cases, surgery may be performed to remove more of the roundworm matter.
Living and Management
It is very important to take the animal in for a repeat fecal examination to ensure that all of the roundworms, including the larvae, were eliminated from the dog's body.
There are no known preventative measures for roundworms.
