I want to be on the safe side, however will a dewormer hurt a puppy that does not have any worms?
I´ve also read that worms can delay a puppy´s growth, so I´m wondering if that´s why he is still so little?
If you are really concerned get a fecal done first. No need to deworm if their are no worms. That's pointless. It's just putting a needless chemical pesticide into your dogs body for no reason. Always get a fecal done first.
