Default Deworming

I was wondering how long it takes for deworming to take effect?
It turns out Snoppy got roundworm. All the household dogs are being dewormed right now.
I gave them all a dose last night and another in 14 days.

Yuck sorry to hear Snoopy has worms! I do not know how long it takes to be rid of them but I found this which might be helpful:
Quote:
There are two important concepts to keep in mind about deworming. Medications essentially anesthetize the worm so that it let’s go of its grip on the host intestine and passes with the stool. Once it has been passed, it cannot survive in the environment and dies.

This means that you will likely see the worms when they pass so be prepared as they can be quite long and may still be alive and moving when you see them.

The other concept stems from the fact that all the larvae in migration cannot be killed by any of these products. After the worms are cleared from the intestine, they will be replaced by new worms completing their migration. This means that a second, and sometimes even a third deworming is needed to keep the intestine clear. The follow-up deworming is generally given several weeks following the first deworming to allow for migrating worms to arrive in the intestine where they are vulnerable.
