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

Now if you are seeing worms, all you need to do is worm Toby. There are a range of over the counter wormers at pet stores or you can even get them from the vet without an appointment (they can weigh him at the same time to make sure you get the right dose). If he seems very young, then you can specifically use Panacur/Fenbendazole as that is safe for pups as young as 2 weeks of age. And be aware that if he has a lot of worms, you will see him pass more as the wormer works and forces them out of his intestines. As well, be aware that he will need worming monthly until he is 6 months of age. But this is something you can do for him now even if you could not get him into a vets today.

Kind regards,

Dr. B
