Will Bayer Advanced Complete Insect Killer For Soil & Turk kill whipworms?
my dog is eating the dirt in the lawn and getting whipworms then has to go to the vet.
Unfortunately there are no products on the market to kill or control whipworm eggs in the soil. There are few options for you but here they are: 1. remove the first 4"-6" of soil from the entire area the dog uses and replace with new soil and reseed with grass. 2. Keep the dog on Interceptor Heartworm preventative which also keeps whipworm eggs from developing into parasites in the dog. 3. Keep the dog away from the infested area for at least 5 years and alsways pick up feces every couple of days from the new area to stop the new area from becoming infested.
