I feel like I may have gotten screwed, they were so responsive leading up to me taking him home...
I would buy a weight tape to get his weight, and I would not use Equimax the first time because of the praziquantel in it. That makes it much more efficient a dewormer and if he's got a big worm load it could cause him a problem. I'd use plain Ivermectin, Panacur, Strongid, Safeguard, and only 1/2 dose, since they won't respond.
Unfortunately, the unresponsiveness is typical of my experience with rescues. They said they dewormed him but won't say with what, therefore in MY mind, I question whether they actually did it at all. What is his body condition? Is he in good flesh or very thin? Does he have long-ish hair all over or is he shed out slick?
