Can I Deworm My Aussie Puppie?

by Megan Parsons
(Placerville, California, U.S.A)

I have a 2 month old Australian Sheppard Kelpie mix, he keeps yapping and biting at his rear end and family and friends have told me this could mean he has worms, but the people I purchased him from told me that Aussies should not be wormed. I was wondering if that is true... and if so what I should do if it's thought he does have worms?

Please take him to the vet first and find out if he really has worms. Aussies shouldn't be dewormed because the medication can be toxic to them and they might die.

I agree. Take your puppy to the vet. Your vet can tell you for sure if your puppy has worms and recommend the safest way to help your puppy. Many deworming meds are harmful for aussies so your vet can guide you to right solution.
