    Default Worms found in Rocky's poop??

    This morning, I took Rocky out to do his business, and as he did, I noticed the white things moving around in his , Rocky's on Interceptor Heart worm and worming medication, His stool had been checked by my Vet before saying he was clear, but now this is showing up, I hate to ask y'all to look at his , But I took it in movie version so you can actually see them move, anyone know if this is normal, or should I be very concerned, He's playing fine, being his normal self, But i'm not sure what these things are.

    i'd like to help and see. But the link isn't working.

    Worms in the poo doesn't seem normal but I'd suggest giving the vet a call even though they have him on a preventative.

    Yeah, there is certainly something living in there. Take the sample to the vet. Have them run it for something and hopefully they can give you something more definitive than I'm going to give you. All I got is EWWWWW.

    THey could be roundworms or tapeworms...at any rate, I would take the stool to the vet and have Rocky looked at.

    I cannot look at this right now as I'm eating my lunch and it's a salad with chunked chicken. Off to the vet with a sample you go.

    The good thing is that most worms are easily killed with a dewormer. Good luck!

    Yep exactly. I think interceptor is just for fleas, ticks and heartworm but I could be wrong.

    Worm eggs can be found in some crazy places, (garden, puddle) especially if you live in moist climates. Once a single egg is ingested it can hatch and reproduce in just a few weeks. So even if he was clear a short time ago, he could easily get a bad case of them in as little as a few weeks.

    When was the dog last treated with the Interceptor? Interceptor not only kills heartworms but also [Milbemycin also treats and controls adult intestinal parasites such as hookworm, whipworm and two types of roundworm.] So yes you may have it looked at by your vet but It may be that the interceptor is working and ridding the dog of intestinal parasites.
