Mischief Monday: Deworming and Spam

Say what? I'd never thought I'd discuss about dog deworming and Google's comment spam in a single post. Anyway, let us begin!

GOOGLE COMMENT SPAM

I recently had this pop-up educating me on the world of Comment SPAM. Long story short, I was finally able to go to my spam inbox and guess who's on the list...

Ugh! The nerve! No wonder I've been missing out on some great comments because Google decided it was spam! 

Worry not, dear bloggy friends! I have un-spammed all of you. LOL. It seems that the dogs need not do any mischief this week. Google has wrapped it up for them.

DOG DEWORMING

A reader recently emailed me regarding my post on dog deworming... and he was asking for help on what kind of deworming medicine will work best as a preventative measure.

Since I live in the Philippines, I am pretty sure that the one I am using isn't sold in the US. However, just in case you guys are wondering what it is... it's called Albendazole Microzole. This is what my vet uses and what he recommended for us to use.

HELP NEEDED

Since this reader is in the US, I am unable to help him out. I was hoping that you guys could recommend a deworming medicine for him by sharing it through your comments. I would truly appreciate your help on this.

Thanks in advance.

  1. Glad you managed to sort out the spam thingie. We use Drontal for de-worming but not sure if you can get that in the states. Think you can. Have a marvelous Monday.

  11. We're SPAM....the nerve! Actually, we found the same thing happened to us a couple months back. We found that some comments destined for our blog ended up in SPAM, so we check it frequently. Hasn't happened again...go figure.

  21. We use Ivermectin but there is some controversy on it. I would reccomend that the reader ask a vet. Our vet gave us the doasge info for ivermectin but we have to be very careful because the dosage has to be exactly correct or it could be harmful. It is simpler to just give them (I think it is called) Heart Gaurd. But only the vet sells it.

    Hope that helps! Google can be a pain...

    Licks,
