    Red face Does anyone know...?

    If I can take worming tablets??? (dont worry I dont have worms )

    We have a new puppy that the breeder wormed the day we picked her up.. over the last few days I have noticed that she has been 'getting rid' of these worms when she poo's. I had her at the vet this morning for a check up and she told me that I have to worm our whole family (I dunno why we arnt showing signs of worms)

    Lindsay you can't take worming tablets while pg, but you should most probably do you DD and DH, just incase.

    No I just wormed my two year old and husband as we have three dogs and pregnant women can not take any form of worming tablets! It is funny though when I asked the pharmacy I said it exactly the same thing (Dont worry I dont have them!) You feel dirty just taking about them!

    Definately worm DD and DH but try eating more garlic in your meals as that is supposed to get rid of worms.

    LOL, I know when I go into the chemist I always say, we have just wormed the cats and I need to do the fam, just so it doesn't sound like we are a bunch of bum scratchers....

    I would definitely doublecheck with either a pharmacist or a Doctor about worming tablets
