Evict DS Wormer
Evict DS is a generic wormer based on pyrantel pamoate, which is a pretty effective drug used to kill roundworms and hookworms. It is damaging to the nervous systems of worms and other parasites, and it will paralyze them, eventually killing them as they can't move around or eat. It can be used as young as 2 weeks old on puppies, and many owners give their puppy a wormer because they can easily pick up various parasites from their mother. Even if the mother doesn't show any symptoms of worms, she may have the larva but be killing them off effectively with her immune system. A puppy is weaker and will be susceptible to an infestation. Evict DS is made by Lambert Kay, and it comes in a liquid form that you add to your dog's food.
Is it safe? Are there any side effects?
Yes, pyrantel pamoate is generally safe, but you should consult your vet about it even though it's sold over the counter. With a young puppy you'll have to go in for checkups and shots anyway - so just ask your vet a recommendation before you use it, because with some animals that are sickly it isn't a good idea. As far as side effects, a small number of dogs will vomit after taking it, but otherwise there aren't any common side effects. Make sure you stay with the recommended doses.
