Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Thank you for your question. My name is***** I have been a small animal veterinarian for 14 years and I'd like to help with your question. Can you tell me if the worms were small, flat, white worms that look like grains of rice? Or were they longer and round?
Small, flat worms are usually tapeworms. Tapeworms are spread by fleas so I would start by treating your puppy and any in contact animals for fleas. You can get a tapeworm dewormer at most pet stores. Just make sure you get one that contains praziquantel and follow the instructions on the label.
I hope that helps, but if you have more questions please let me know!
