How do I know if my pet has worms?
Puppies and kittens can get intestinal parasites from their mom, so we routinely deworm them at least twice. The parasite eggs are microscopic so you won’t necessarily see worms in the stool.
Adult dogs and cats who go outside should have an annual fecal exam (stool check) for parasites, or a routine annual deworming. Worms can be picked up anywhere other animals go. CLICK HERE to see how dogs can be infected with worms.
Some monthly flea treatments, such as Trifexis, also provide control for worms.
My dog or cats has little eggs on its bottom that look like pieces of rice, what are they?
