Customer Question
Her gums are blueish...

Her gums are blueish black I can take a picture of them n send it to u I haven't ever seen a puppy with black gums even the ruuf of her mouthbis black

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the puppy?

Nothing she acts just fine sh3 sleeps quite a lot..... She was given to me because the woman couldn't afford to care for her and her mother both and I am pretty sure she wasn't ready I had to feed her with a dropper for 2 weeks then she finally learned how to chew

Veterinarian's Assistant: Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the puppy. What is the dog's name?

Molly.... She is a chihuahua mix

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

She had worms so I gave her worm meds but she had a worm come out of her that was as long as her body

I am sorry to hear you are concerned about Molly. How old is she?

Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

Black gums and the roof of the mouth being black can be normal in dogs that are grey or black in color; it is normal pigment.

Worms that long can be roundworms or tapeworms. If you treated for them, I would worm her again in 10 to 14 days.
