Dr. Larson :

Hello, and I am sorry to see that it has taken so long for someone to address your question. The best treatment for Sara would be to deworm her with Ivomec Eprinex. This is an oral liquid that is mixed with a little water and administered through a nasogastric tube, so will likely need to be given by your vet. It is a very good dewormer and works very well on external parasites as well.
