HOOKWORM TREATMENT STARTS BY TREATING THE ENVIRONMENT
Once you have an outbreak of dogs with hookworms , you have to figure if you were not on top of it, that the environment has been contaminated with hookworms and must be treated if possible.
Hookworms are very hardy and hookworm eggs can survive for many months and perhaps years in certain soil conditions.
Thankfully, because my kennel is all cement and pea-gravel, I could spray the entire area numerous times with chlorine to kill any hookworm larvae or eggs. I also made sure all the dogs were thoroughly bathed with a chlorine mix to kill any hookworm larvae or eggs.
For hookworm treatment if your dog is outside always or even occasionally, the area the dog is pinned or tied has to be saturated with Chlorine, in order to kill any hookworm larvae or eggs that could re-infect your dog after treatment. Remember, in certain soil conditions, the hookworm eggs may be lying in the soil and a light surface spraying of chlorine is likely to have no effect. If the area is grassy, the chlorine is going to kill the grass. It is also very corrosive, so you want to avoid spraying on anything metal, such as fencing.
USE FENBENDAZOLE FOR HOOKWORM TREATMENT
Although there are a number of different hookworm treatments effective for treating hookworms in dogs, I use FENBENDAZOLE which is the active ingredient in both Safe-Guard Canine De-wormer and Panacur-C Canine De-wormer Fenbendazole, is an highly effective hookworm treatment against most worms including hookworms in dogs. It does not work on heart-worms. For adult dogs I recommend rotating treatment between intestinal worms and heart-worms. each month. So, one month you treat your dogs for heart-worms. and the next for intestinal worms such as hookworms.
