Sometimes, you can easily detect worms in your dog. Although this is not true for all worm types, some of them can be seen with the naked eye. You might notice tapeworms, roundworms or whipworms in your dog’s feces and even on their fur, near the tail. These kinds of worms are often white in color and differ in size. They could be small like rice grains, or a little bigger, looking like small noodles. These intestinal parasites often cause symptoms like diarrhea, vomiting, weight loss, dry hair and fatigue. Your veterinarian may ask you to provide a poop sample for testing.




  1. Dogs have worms. Its a simple fact. Dogs eat things out in the yard you don’t see, such as cat poop, rabbit poop, dirt and mud in plants and debris that may have a delectable decomp smell to it, and many other gross things. Its very easy to put your dog on a regular deworming schedule to help keep that beloved pet (and yourself) parasite free.
    We deworm puppies from the time they are 2 weeks old, every two weeks until months old where we reduce it to once a month, then at age 6 mos. of age we do it every other month or as needed. Worms do not always show up on a fecal test as in certain stages you will not see worm eggs or even the actual worms in the test. Its always good to rotate deworming ingredients as well to prevent the worms from building an immunity to the worm meds. We rotate with Febendezole, Oxybendezole, and Pyrantel Pomoate. they are great for getting rid of dangerous life sucking parasites. Best of luck.
