I noticed today our puppy had worms in her stool, and I looked it up and it sounds like she has tapeworms, which you get from ingesting a flea. I cannnot say I am not surprised bc when we got her she was INFESTED with fleas poor baby! What a terrible owner she had before! Nonetheless, I have never dealt with a sick dog like this. Do I need to worry ab my older dog and my son? The two dogs are always trying to eat each other's food, and my son is 3 and obviously plays on the ground. What should I do? The vet visit is tomorrow, and the animal hospital said to just make an appt for tomorrow and keep the dog apart from the rest of the family until then, I just hate keeping her in her pet carrier until then but am scared to let her out!
Also, she just got treated with a flea ointment two weeks ago (she was too young and too tiny to get treated right away when I got her other than baths.) She is only a pound and a half.
