    Hi Tumblefanatic,

    Piperazine is not a great dewormer. It only gets roundworms but has been around for so long that many roundworms may be resistent. it doesn't get hook worms and many other parasites.
    I would encourage you to see a veterinarian as the veterinary products are the best and most effective at getting rid of parasites.
    There is a great website:www.capcvet.org where you can get lots of information on common parasites. Keeping them parasite free is so important for their health, and our health.
    Dr. Sandy
