I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Which drug was prescribed to address lungworms? Were lungworms confirmed by finding lungworm ova (eggs) in the stool microscopically? What was diagnosed that prompted your dog to be prescribed Benylin and antibiotics? Which Benylin product has been given? The ingredients vary between the many products. Have X-rays of his thorax (chest) been performed?
