Dewormed for the first time

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 week the puppies were dewormed for the first time. I used Drontal Pup suspension and gave it directly in the mouth with a syringe to get the exact right amount. They were not amused by this strange pink "millk" from such a weired nipple!
