Question
Good Afternoon Donna,
Update on Migi - Didn't give any more MOM just watching ate very little no snack foods today only hay & water but still not right Donna i stopped giving the DURAMYCIN could this be causing his digestive upset? Now both sides of his tummy looks sunken in not bloated at all. I'm suppose to worm him last month but i forgot. Do u think he needs to be wormed? If so can u tell me the dosage again i think this time he needs SAFEGUARD WORMER b/c last time was ZIMECTERIN. Thanks Donna

Luv,
Me & Migi

Answer
For preventative use, I would recommend only using the duramycin or any other oral antibiotic only for 5 days.  The sunken in sounds more like he is not drinking enough water.  Worming is best done every two months - so whenever he is due next - would not worm while he is not feeling well though - use twice his body weight to find the measurement on the plunger, always going higher.  Hope this helps - Donna
