  • Take her to the vet and see if that is what it is for sure. If it is that then go to the doctor.

  • actually tape worms will come out in segments and not whole worms. Take the dog to the vet and get a professional worming done. works better than the home ones.

  • Definitely go to the vet and to the doctor. Deworming is very important. Good luck.
