I use Equimax once a month on my grown beagles, about a pea size, but i would like to know if you can give it to pups at about 4 months old. What is the youngest age you can start giving this wormer to pups ?
I use Nemex-2 through 10 weeks and will start pups on Ivomec the following month when I treat the rest of the grown hounds.

From a heartworm prevention viewpoint...it's crucial that you start young hounds on a treatment before they turn 6 months old. Ivomec kills the heartworm larva not the adult heartworm which takes 6 months to mature.
