    Is it safe for me to give tapeworm meds while pregnant?

    How do you know it's tapeworm? And why would you be self-medicating? You should be in close contact with your vet while your dog is pregnant and call the hospital to see what they recommend. There might be a different drug that does not cross the placental barrier, or they may want a drug to do that in case the pups have been affected.
