Worms in Dogs and Puppy Worms

There are five types of worms that effect our Best Mate. How do you know if your dog has worms and what do you do about it! If your puppy or dog is tired or listless or their coat is dull and course instead of soft and shinny, there's a good chance he or she has a worm problem. Another tell tale sign is that, if your puppy is eating, but not gaining weight or you dog is eating and has suddenly lost weight, big chance it's a worm problem and advisable to seek attention from your veterinarian.

Hookworms are very small so it's difficult to detect them. A young pups faeces is likely to appear soft and can turn into diarrhea, and is usually blood stained. It can cause serious anaemia which can be fatal.

Roundworms are quite large and can measure up to 18cm in length. Puppies can, actually, be born with Roundworms, they are passed through to the pup from their Mothers while the pup is still in her uterus. Those effected will appear to have fat little bellies.

Tapeworms can be as big as half a metre in length and are quite common in dogs but, luckily, they don't usually cause severe disease. One of the most identifiable of your dog symptoms, is your dog or puppy rubbing it's bottom along the ground, that's your cue to seek help from your veterinarian.

Whipworm is a medium size worm and it affects the lower bowel of your puppy or dog. It will cause diarrhea spotted with blood.

Heart Worm Unlike the other four worms in dogs that are intestinal; The Heart Worm lodges itself in the dogs heart. The disease is caused by a mosquito bite and it can take years for the disease to be diagnosed, mostly in dogs from four to eight years of age. Seek help from a Vet for advise if your dog is: short of breath, listless and weak after exercise and if they have a chronic cough.

Ask a Vet for help if you have a query about certain dog symptoms regarding worms in dogs or you have a slow or sick puppy that is not progressing as well as you would like. A Dog Vet can put your mind at ease in no time! BUT PLEASE, if your dog symptoms persist, take your dog or puppy to your veterinarian; Because our dogs don't have a voices, they depend on us to keep them strong and healthy!
