  • normally they will not gain weight or they will have worms in their poo. there are de-wormers at pet stores (petco) that you give them. it can be liquid or a pill. it could be harmful to a one year old but i dont know that for sure.

  • Let's see, most common I've seen green goo-ish poo, vomitting white foam (or yellow)... not quite as hungry, continually swollen belly... if they're bad you'll be able to see the pup's back bones/hip bones...

    Go to Walmart, over in the dog section there's a liquid dewormer (dont buy pill, its more hell) and go to the pharmacy and ask for a syringe to give baby's medicine... use the syringe to give dog recommended dose of dewormer, you'll thank yourself for that syringe, trust me.

    And yes it can harm people... make sure you clean any pee/poo spots on the floor with bleach to kill any larva that might have come out.

  • if they have lost of appitie, ichy butt, got a belly but look thin on top, or if they have worms in their poo they have worms. most pet wormers are safe for puppies past 3 months and if u have any other animals in the house such as cats they r going to need treated to.
