    It should. Tapeworm treatment is usually a one dose thing. Tapeworms are different than roundworms, which need multiple doses to break the cycle. If you continue to see tapeworm segments, then ask...

    Say what? Still don't understand your rationale for "watch" being ok but "mark" isn't, in AKC HT. HRC people say mark when a bird hits the ground? Interesting. Can't do that in AKC, at least, not...

    Depends on the quality of the semen, the expertise of the repro team, the bitch, etc. I've not done chilled, only frozen, and so far, TCI has been the most successful method for mine.
