Hi Katz,I'm having a problem with teacup for the past two days he been chasing his tail and sniffing at it. do you think he has worms? He shouldnt b/c he takes worm meds every month,or do you think he's just playing? I keep him very clean. Anyone can answer if they like. members I asked kaz only b/c one of her topic I read some where one of her babies had hook worms and she saw them so I expect she knows all about this .oh by the way I did look to see and didnt see anything back there. Thank God!
Are you sure it was hook worms and not tape worms? Tape worms you can see. Look like grains of rice on their rear end. I believe hook worms cause a bloody stool and you can tell they are not feeling well. Alot of times weight loss but either way I would have him checked by the vet. Is he on Inteceptor or heart guard or any other heart worm protection?
Thanks, Yes I did get the worms mix up.(UGH) I meant to say tape worms. SORRY... Tea is on heart guard I give it to him once a month. no..his tail is all one color.Iwill watch and see how he do today if not i'll take him as soon as possible b/c I have a weak stomach.
Since you did get it mixed up and know what it is, they can get tape worms even if they are on heart worm pills. All it takes is swallowing a flea. You will have to not only give him tape worm pills but if you have any other dogs they should be treated too. Also his bedding needs to be washed after he is treated. Hope this helps alittle bit.
We live in chicago and the fles isnt out yet.at least i dont think they are. anyway today when i got home he was biteing his leg and tail and you know what... i did give him another bath b/c i dont know if it was the shampoo or not. i'm give it one more day just to see, right now were' on our way to o/b school. first time around other dogs.we wasnt lyning when we say our pets is our children. they worry you to death !!!! (gee-whiz)
