So my hubby got this cute little dog from TX when he went back for the funeral. Supposely it was from a stray litter of 6. We don't know how old or what kind of dog. I know that worm problems are common in puppies. It turned out she has tapeworms after I took her to Petco's moving Van Vet. ( i showed her the remain of worms and she claimed it was tapeworms and not roundworms). Despite the fact that we (humans) are not going to get affected due to how tapeworms have to have intermediate host to lay eggs on and so forth, I am reluctant to let her run around the house.
When I wake her in the morning, I see 30 dried up dead worms in her cage. The worms come out of her bottom even when she is playing on my lap. (yes, we found a live one on my jeans the other day, but it dries up and dies).
First of all, is this normal to have worms coming out of her body while the pup is playing or sleeping or doing nothing, anyone knows???
