I havd recently adopted an 8 week old bullmastiff puppy.... I noticed today he threw up once and used the bathroom three times and all three times his poop was covered in white alive worms.... I can't afford a vet right now .... what do I do...... any ideas would be greatly appreciated
you need to take him to the vet and have him wormed. worms can cause all kinds of problems and in the end if not treated they die. my last normal vet trip was like 20 for the check up and 14 for the wormer, its been a while sence we have done shots but i want to say when we got our pugs health check and shots it wasnt much more then 50.
I'm gonna trade this life for fortune and fame I'd even cut my hair and change my name
Why did you adopt a puppy if you can not afford a vet???? how are you going to pay for his shots and care? Very irresponsible in my book.
Any dog that severely infested with worms should be seen by a vet ASAP, but then if he has worms that bad you obviously didn't get him from a good place. by 8wks old, they should have been dewormed and at most still have a few eggs, but not full blown worms. He probably has round worms, and they can be treated with nemex2. Any place will carry it. TREAT AT YOUR OWN RISK, you could kill him if he is to infested, and really should see a vet, or give him to someone who can actually care for him. How selfish.
a vet trip for worms wont cost you that much. you could worm at home but without testing the puppy to see what kind of worms he has you might not even being giving the right meds so thats a waste of money right there. itll cost less in the long run to take him to the vet and treat him for what worm(s) he has and if he is throwing up and passing them he is at the point of being sick (obviously!!) from them so he needs treated asap!
