    Puppy help!!

    My 14 week old puppy just threw up on the floor and I looked down and I was wondering what he couldve ate that had cloth strands but I looked and they were long white worms. Do I need to take him to a vet or by a worm medication tomorrow at Theisens? TIA

    vet probably wont cost a whole lot more and would probably work better, but thats my opinion.

    We had to give our puppy de-wormer every couple of weeks back when he was 8-12 weeks old. It was in a syringe we received from the vet. Now we give him a pill once a month. Sounds like a vet visit wouldn't hurt.

    It sounds like roundworm. I would probably take the puppy to the vet. It may be something minor, but roundworm infestation can be pretty serious if you don't nip it in the bud quickly.

    I do not know if this helps: Intestinal Worms in Dogs and Puppies

    I would talk to your vet asap and get it taken care of.

    I just spoke with my mother, and she mentioned that all of her puppies that she had has had worms of some sort and she has bought de-wormer from wal-mart or farm store and it has worked.

    Its your puppy man, you can do what you like. You are ultimately responsible for its health. When was your last fecal test at the vet? Within the first 20 weeks we had three tests.

    We are lucky though we paid $350.00 and it covered a year of visits, neutering, shots, inspections, all that stuff. We have calculated that we have saved hundreds with that plan.

    Re: Puppy help!!

    if it possible, get a fecal sample to take to your vet and if you still have some of the vomit with the white strands take that into the vet as well it will help immensely with the diagnosis.

    youll want to keep a close eye on your puppy for any type of weird behavior. if it is intestinal worms, they can really zap the energy out of a dog especially a puppy. If it appears that he is weak, stumbling, or has problems eating then you really should get it to a vest as soon as possible.

    Re: Puppy help!!

    I'd agree with getting a fecal samples tested. Different worms require different products to control them.

    Re: Puppy help!!

    Lots of puppies get worms. If an animal shelter was involved, they do great work, but more likely than not, the dogs will have worms.

    Since you saw worms, it's good that you're going to the vet right away! You and your puppy (and the family) will be glad you did for years to come.
