I think he has worms. What can I do for him now. My vet is closed.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations the dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the dog's name and age?

Peanut, 5 yrs old

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Peanut?

He has had diearra for 3 days. I have been giving him medicine my vet gave me Loperamide Hydrochloride. And kaopetate. He is scouting on his but and smells bad.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

If you think he has worms, you need only visit your local pet store (or even some pharmacies and Walmart type stores carry wormers). If the worms look like noodles, those are roundworms and we'd want to use a product with Pyrantel pamoate. If they look like rice, which are tapeworms, then Praziquantel would be our best option. Of course, you can find a number of products (ie Drontal) that contain both and will address these for Peanut. And if those are to blame for his diarrhea, then treating for them should settle his loose stools. Of course, if that lingers, it'd be ideal to have a stool sample to his vet once they are open for analysis to determine what agent (ie protozoa, bacteria, virus) is present so we can target treatment to settle this for him.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
