So DHound is due to be wormed on Monday. I've never done this before. Sorry if this sounds daft but I've never done this before.
Plan is. Give it in the morning in case it upsets her tummy (I'm around in the day) and shove it inside a babybel!
Anything I haven't thought of? Does it upset tummies? Could she be sick? Is there any reason to keep her away from other dogs?
Overthinking much?! grin

This is how she feels about worming!

My initial thought was that you are overthinking....but then I realised that I have labradors who can eat the contents of a dustbin with few problems! If you are uncertain do it first thing in morning....more chance to get him outside if necessary.
Good luck!

Thanks for the reply. She's only a baby and I haven't had a dog before. PFD! grin

I usually do it in the morning so I can watch them, but there well be no logic to this! ( I also deflea in the morning in the hope that any potential fleas jump off outside rather than overnight in the house)

She's unlikely to be sick, I have only seen a pup vomit worm tablets once, but she was very wormy and it may have been unrelated.

Some dogs will eat the tablets like sweets - you may not need the cheese.

My dog tummy can be a bit sensitive, a whole baby bel would probably give her the runs, but she has never had any problems after taking Drontal.

I also give it in the morning for the same reason, but as I say she's always fine; once I've managed to get it in her.

My dog had issues with drontal. It made her sick anything from 4 hours to 24 hours after she had it. She has droncit now. She was only sick once though it wasn't like a full day of illness.

My pup has the drontal syrup, he slurps it down no problem.

My pup has Drontal.. Has made her sick on each occasion.. But she eats the sick (sorry😉).. I put it in peanut butter.. First two times she was sick about 3 hours after.. The last time about 24 hours!! I will try an alternative next time.
