Hi Mary,

If your dog had tapeworms and you gave her safeguard for three days, it's possible that the medication effectively eliminated the worms from her system. However, the symptoms your dog is currently exhibiting, including bloating and difficulty passing stool, could be indicative of another issue that needs to be addressed.

Bloating and constipation in dogs can be caused by a variety of factors, including dietary issues, dehydration, obstruction of the gastrointestinal tract, or other underlying health conditions. In some cases, the medication used to treat the tapeworm infestation could also be contributing to these symptoms.

It's important to take your dog to a veterinarian as soon as possible for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan. Your vet may perform a physical exam, conduct diagnostic tests, and recommend appropriate treatment based on the underlying cause of your dog's symptoms. In the meantime, you can encourage your dog to drink plenty of water and offer her small, frequent meals of easily digestible foods to help alleviate any discomfort.

All the best to you and your dog,
