I just got a new pup today and its 8 weeks old tomarrow and it hasnt been dewormed I picked up dewormer and says how much to give but not how frequently there is three tablets and it takes one tablet per ten pounds of pup.

Any info on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

by the way its a lab pup.

It hasn't been wormed yet or it needs its 8 week dose? When we have pups around they get treated at 2,3,4,6,8,and 10 weeks. If it hasn't been wormed yet go to the vet and get some Nemex-2 and give it a heavier dose than normal. I'm not sure what kind or where you got those tabs from but I personally don't trust the petco/wallyworld brands.

Then we do it once a month, year round. If you have other animals around in my opinion its a must. We just do it with their heart worm and tick preventative. Its cheaper to do preventive things than to haul a bag of feces to the vet a bunch of times to see if you got rid of the problem.

I doesn't have to be Nemex, thats just the brand we have been using. I get a 16 oz bottle for about $60 online at revival animal, and that last us a long time.

      Plus, resorts would love to have you, now that no one goes to them due to the closing of walleye fishing.

      Must of been tough to sit there looking at the lake and not fish! Can't believe it was 60 up there today!? Not what I was hoping for. Didn't hit 50 down by the cities today.

      Looking at staying at Thunderbird or Sha Sha resort.  We want to spend some time fishing the Canadian side as well.  How long does it take to get from there to the Canadian Causeway bridge?  I've got a Lund ProV with a 200hp and usually run about half throttle.

      What amoerage batteries do you have? I finally got my gearbox back from clam this week..... a little to late... I am so glad they used us for product testing and ended up screwing me out of going electric this year, I am selling it early next season and going with the k-drill
