    Oh my gosh. Well at least you can say you arent bored right?!?! Sorry have to try and look at the bright side for you. I know this wont help any really but in the meantime I remember our vet told my mom when I was young to get rid of worms to sprinkle garlic powder over the dog food. I know they say garlic is bad but I do think it is the raw garlic more than just powder. I would be eating a lot of garlic if I were you and the fur kid too. lol I know this isnt funny but thought that may help a bit?

    @cali~jen I love garlic so .. it can't hurt right? Dinner tonight is Italian! The vet called me back and said to bring in a sample and that they are contagious to people but mostly only if we aren't washing our hands when we touch poop or if we were using his dog bed as a dinner table I see the dr next week so I will mention it. @2BullyMama that is certainly close enough!!! I used drive farther for work! How soon can we make this happen?

    Oh lord, you have certainly had one crisis after another!! I live 10 minutes from the beach, the only requirement for me to adopt you and Tyson is the worms have got to go!! Do you have any family members near you?? I would ask a HUGE favor and have them come over and have a cleaning party.? You should not be inhaling bleach!!

    If it looks like rice, it is tapeworms. However the "rice"u see is a segment of the tapeworm, not tje entire worm nor eggs. We went througj this with my cat and boston. The tapeworm is still alive in there and will pass dead when u woem him. Hope this makes u feel some better. Just clean really good and get med asap

    I know Garlic is for pin worms and dogs don't get those. I am not sure if it works on other worms. When Bella was small and losing weight, one concern was tapeworms. The vet didn't seem to be concerned about us at all, led me to believe we were safe. She just gave Bella medicine and told me how to look for them, Rice looking sections.

    Always with me

    The tape worm is usually carried by a flea. The small pcs. of rice can be bits of the tape worm. An adult tape worm lives in the stomach and can be very large if your pet has had the worm for a long time. It eats the nutrients that your pet gets out of the food your pet eats. you will see these little pcs of worm after a bowl movement looking like they are stretching. sometimes hanging from the butt area. They are flat looking. The egg can't live on cool surfaces. Make sure that fleas are gone for sure. You can get over the counter worm medicine for your pet, you should follow directions and worm twice in a 5-10 day period. depending on the medicine you get.

    Hope this helps some.

    Been there done that, the best thing is to never have fleas.

    my boston has had tapeworms before and there was no concern by the vet for us so im thinking people are safe. my vet said they could come from a dead carcass and things like that. also my boys get a heartworm med now that covers the other worms such as you mentioned and tapeworms. so ask the vet about that heartworm med. my bostons get that one and sarah who does not eat dead things and such gets the regular heartworm meds. oh geez hon you and dog can come but no worms
