A 32-year-old female asked:

Is there a deworming medication available for babies who are less than 1 year old? my daughter is 10.5 months old and has been licked in the mouth more than once by dogs who are not up to date with their deworming treatment.

Maybe...but...: Why would you assume the kid has "dog" worms. In 4 decades of pediatric practice I never saw a case. Humans don't get heart worms. Discuss any such concerns with the kid's doc.
