Deworming in week 2

All puppies are born with worms and need be dewormed at week 2, 4, 6, 8 and 12. When the bitch is pregnant her rising progesterone levels cause immature worm larvae in her muscles to awaken and swim right through the uterine wall into the puppy before it is even born. By two or three weeks of age puppies are shedding worm eggs and infecting each other. This weekend was the first go. I used Drontal Pup suspension and mixed it with puppy milk. With a syringe I was able to give each puppy the right amount. First I tried to give it in the mouth, unmixed, but the poor little girl looked very unhappy and spit out most of it. So the rest I gave with the sond directly into the stomach. Safe. Also the mother needs to be dewormed.

Uhh, what kind of milk was that?!!!
