Round worms are most commonly vomited and passed in the stool. Hookworms are theoretically possible. I'd like you to go to the pet/feed store and purchase a wormer containing fenbendazole (Panacur) and dose it per the label's instructions once daily for 3 consecutive days. Fenbendazole is a safe and effective wormer for all of the nematodes (roundworms, hookworms, whipworms) and also addresses the protozoan Giardia. Repeat another 3 day course a month from the initial treatment. Be sure that Princess is on a heartworm preventative as well. Many of the preventatives also can address these nematodes and so you wouldn't need to worm specifically for them. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
