Yes, it should be okay so mix the correct amount of (food grade DE only) DE with the ice cream and try to be sure he cleans it up or give smaller amounts in 2 doses.

I have tape worms in my dogs. There is a mixture of things to make tape worm medicine. I have lost the recipe. I know you use fish medicine in it. Can anyone help me?

If you have actually seen the tapeworms in your dogs they are all infected and the only person who can diagnose the correct treatment/dosage is your veterinarian. In the best interest of the dogs hope this helps.

Tradewinds for Dogs is the best medicine for tapeworms It is over the counter. Also, there is safeguard for dogs and puppies, but it only treats the type of tapeworms that come from eating rodents and animals, and not the more commo type that comes from the pet ingesting fleas.

Tradewind is the best and you can find it at at feed supply store. Sometimes you can find it at stores but not usually.


For roundworms and such I use Nemex and have been very happy with it as well. The Nemex will get them all but not the tapes.
