Camallanus worms!!! Help!!!

I have an infestation of these horrible beasts. I live in Canada with limited access to some of the antibiotics that I've read about. Suggestions please.

Antibiotics will not treat cam worm. You will need to treat with a dewormer. Fenbendazole can be tried via food or levamisole as a tank treatment. eBay Canada or veterinary/farm supply stores will be your best bets for finding either of these meds. Fenben is a common dog wormer while leva is goat/pig wormer though it's also commonly used for aviary purposes.
