Frequently Asked Questions
How Does My Dog Get Worms? There are 4 common ways your dog can pick up intestinal worms: 1. By swallowing infected fleas while grooming 2. By ingesting worm eggs from a contaminated environment (toys, grass, soil, etc.) 3. By eating or scavenging carcasses of other infected animals (mice, rabbits, birds, etc.) 4. From the mother to her puppies, either across the placenta before they are born, or via her milk when nursing
How Do I Know If I Need To Worm My Dog? You shouldn't wait until you start seeing signs of worms as infections have to be quite severe before signs let you know there is a problem. Signs of worm can include weight loss, bloated tummy, diarrhoea, vomiting and scooting bottom along the ground but these are not specific to worm infections. Worm eggs are microscopic, but you might see worms (looking like spaghetti) or worm segments (looking like grains of rice) in your dog's stool or around their bottom.
Can People Catch Worms From Dogs? Yes. People can get infected by some worm eggs present on their dog's fur or in the environment, which can cause serious diseases. Roundworm larvae can travel through the body and cause blindness in severe cases, especially in children. That is why it’s important to deworm your dog regularly, even if you can’t see any worms or your dog looks healthy. Regular deworming of your dog can help reduce the chance of this happening and help you protect your whole family.
