Default Roundworms

Hi! Sweet little Maverick had his 11 week appointment today. He weighed 25.2 lbs and overall got a great report.... Except for the fact that he had/still had roundworms. He was wormed at the breeders but it must not have cleared them all out.
He received a dewormer today and will get another dose tomorrow and in the meantime I would like to supplement his regular food a bit with some fresh items to assist with what I assume a bit of nutrient depletion. Any suggestions? Chicken and rice? Pumpkin? Etc...

Thanks!!

Diatomaceous Earth (food grade): Bug Killer You Can Eat!

When my pup had worms, I fed her extra supplements and a bit more food to try and counter the nutrient loss via the worms.

Legend had roundworms so he got to eat the kibble he was on at the breeder's (didn't want to make a huge switch) plus some canned pumpkin. One he started the de-wormer, he expelled several dead worms and his poop firmed up almost immediately. I treated him with Panacur for 3 days and then a week later, I gave all the dogs another dose of their heartworm preventative (which also kills the roundworm eggs) just to be sure.

One major suggestion: pick up all poop as soon as it happens. Rounds can affect people, as well as dogs, so don't leave the poop.
