We start worming pups at two weeks old. I got home from milking this morning just before 9 am and the children were cuddling Treacle's pups, so thought it an ideal moment to give them their first dose of wormer, as they are two weeks old today. Worming pups is very important. Worms can soon overrun a pup and cause them serious health issues at this age. We use Panacur Oral Paste for three days and every two weeks until 10 weeks old.
The photos are the pups just after receiving their first dose of wormer, so the white on their lips is not milk, but wormer, which by the look on their faces does not taste all that good.
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
