Dironet reviews for dogs
Sometimes we buy Dironet for our dogs. We keep three West Siberian huskies and they periodically need to give medications against worms for dogs. It is, of course, more expensive than some other worms, but more effective than them. Just a pack of six pills we spend on one degelmentirovanie our entire pack - two tablets for each husky. We usually buy several packs in advance so that they are always at hand.
Review number 2
I give my pug Dironet only in the summer season from April to October. It turns out a decent prevention, because once a month he falls on half a pill. And before the annual vaccinations, of course, also an anthelmintic. It is advised to give a pill along with the morning food, but my dog finds not a tidbit and spits it out. Therefore, you have to simply thrust his pill into the mouth.
