The lung fluke Paragonimus kellicotti infects dogs living around the Great Lakes, in the Midwest, and southern United States. Flukes are flatworms ranging in size from a few millimeters up to several inches long.
The fluke is acquired by eating aquatic snails and crayfish.
The safest and most effective agent for treating all species of lungworms and lung flukes is Panacur. This drug must be given daily for 10 days.
You can prevent lungworms by cooking fish and restricting your dogs hunting scavenges.
