I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.
The transmission of worms from puppy / dogs to humans is possible. You need to consult a Vet first to confirm by stool exam of puppy and also if it is a transmittable worm to humans. If it is; puppy and all of you in the family would be give medicine to deworm. Usually this is a single tablet which is repeated after 1-2 weeks. This will take care of the issue. There is no emergency associated with it and can be done in a routine appointment from your primary care physician and the Vet.
Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using Just Answer.
Your worry is unfounded as a matter of fact. The transmission is most common if you come in contact with poo of puppy. There is a chance that none of you in the family may have contacted the stool of puppy. Bathing is unlikely to transmit the worms. The usual symptoms of worms are diarrhea, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, weakness. These usually develop in 2-4 weeks. A wait and watch approach can be done if the puppy stool is not examined. If the stool is examined, that would dictate your need of anti wormi medications.
It is privilege assisting you.
