What should I do if I think my dog has intestinal worms?


Answer by  Dana46 (2345)

A good way to check to see if your dog has intestinal worms is to feed them a small amount of garlic and aloe vera juice in a cup of yogurt. Don't feed them more then about a quarter teaspoon of garlic powder per twenty pounds of dog, as garlic thins their blood. Check the stool for worms.

Very easy. I work at a vet. Collect a small stool sample in a ziploc bag and take it directly to the vet, the sample cannot be old. Tell them you think your dog has worms and for them to please do a fecal examination. They will test it and let you know what kind of worms & the treatment.

The least inexpensive way is to call your veterinarian and see if they will prepare a universal deworming pill for your pal.They may want to see your dog along with a stool sample.These worms are harmless,just gross knowing that they are there.

first try some over-the-counter worm medicine available at walmart or any pet store. If he still seems symptomatic in a couple days take him to a vet.

You should purchase a wormer from your vet or a local pet store. Read the instructions on the box and give your dog the proper amount of wormer. Most wormers suggest you give it once a month if the worms are really bad.
