    Default OMG!! Bugging out over here!! ;(

    Ruckus has been doing so well!! He looks great, happy, sift shiny coat, so playful, then... Last night he had an accident in the kitchen. While cleaning it I'm trying to figure what the heck he ate that's in his poo. OMG worms!??!! Tiny little whitish ( not to be gross) but moving. Now I'm freaking out. Calling the vet in the morning since today's Sunday of course. But why?, and how did this happen?

    relax, you can buy wormer over the counter at any pet store, be sure to read the label for instructions, Google canine worms to see what kind they are and you can do this all by yourself. be sure to read instructions on when to worm the second time. usually 5 to 10 days. Relax, you got this.

    Ok calm down its tapeworms and my bostons have gotten them before. It's an easy fix to deworm them. Mine didn't respond to the over the counter meds at petsmart so the vet game me some stuff n poof gone. Mine got them from eating a dead bird carcass. The Heartworm meds have one kind that covers tapeworms also that my Boston's take n no more tapeworms

    I've been on google. By the description I'm thinking tapeworm. And, that's the only worm not listed on his heartguard med. that he gets faithfully. I wonder if his immune system is weak from being on 2 antibiotics and the vet cleaning out his system for the constipation.

    So instead of starting something over the counter today, should I call vet in the morn so they can give the stronger dose from the start?

    Sure you can call your vet in the morning, he will be fine. It's very common. It's easy to fix. you caught it in time. Relax sweetie.

Just wash ur hands and his bedding

    They can get them from anywhere, no big deal, as others have said just get some med. to deworm him and he will be fine.

    That's like us too. He just had his heartguard on the 15th. Right before that he was at the vet for 5 days because he was severely constipated. They cleaned him out completely and I'm thinking they would've noticed worms with all the work they did on him. Surely this is bothering me more than him lol!!
