Protects your pooch by controlling and treating the most common canine intestinal worms such as roundworms, hookworms, tapeworms.
Comes in easy-to-administer pork liver flavored chewable tablet.
Flexible dosage to adapt to pet size.
Safe and effective.
Made in the USA
How it works:
Each Dog Worms 3 chewable tablet contains pyrantel pamoate and praziquantel. Pyrantel pamoate causes the parasite to lose grip of the intestinal wall, which makes it pass out of the system naturally. Praziquantel damages the parasite's skin internally, so the parasite disintegrates and is removed by your dog's immune system.
The safety of Dog Worms 3 in breeding dogs and pregnant bitches has not been determined.

Dog Worms 3
I highly recommend Dog Worms 3. It was a safe, quick and effective treatment for tapeworm for my two Boston Terrier mix dogs. I should mention that I tried this product only after two doses of prescription medication from my vet failed to rid my dogs of worms. So, the fact that an over-the-counter, inexpensive product worked so well is amazing! I did have to wrap the pills in cheese, though. The dogs wouldn't eat them otherwise.
Our dogs are worm free
Did what it was supposed to do quickly and efficiently, without breaking the bank.
Dog Worms 3 worked great and I'm very appreciative that I didn't struggle to get my dog to swallow it. It must taste great because my dog ate it and wanted more!

Peanut is doing great. Dog Worms 3 is a great product. It only took 1 dose and she is all better.
This product has been wonderful and my little yorkie is worm free! She is only 3.5 pounds so on the advice of our vet we gave her half a pill. Highly recommend it.
Hi there, and thank you for your question. The Dog Worms 3 is given as needed should you see evidence of worms in your pet's stool for example. It isn't necessary to give this medication on monthly basis. If you have more than one dog, you should treat all your pets to prevent re-infections from occuring.
I took my dogs into the vet because they had worms. 80 lb black lab, 50 lb bull terrier, and a 4 lb chihuahua. The vet medicated the dogs and recommended that they be medicated again in 3 weeks. The worm medication the vet used was Drancit. Can I use a different medication to worm my pets such as Dog worms 3 for the follow up medication rather than using the Drancit?
Hi there, you would give the first dose to kill any worms in your dogs system. Then as a precaution you would follow-up with a second dose 2-3 weeks to kill any young worms (eggs that might have hatch) .
