Yeah that sounds gross, but someone had dropped a 5-6 week old puppy off at my grandma's so I brought him home...when he was like 8-9 weeks old he started looking skinny and acted sick and when he used the bathroom there were worms so I gave him worm medicine and he was all better the next day. Well he's probably between 4 and 5 months old now and I havent seen any worms and he isnt acting like he did before but my MIL said he threw up today while she was here and he had either ate some rice or had worms, and he's in the house right now asleep and I can hear his stomach gurgling and making weird noises. He got into my garbage I sat under tha carport but I caught him right after he got in it but I assumed maybe he had ate something to make him throw up. What are the signs a dog has worms?Answer Question

I would take him to the Vet ASAP Some of the worms dogs can carry can infect humans as well so you could be putting yourself and your children at risk of coming in contact with worms. Get the dog tested, treated and then start some preventative medication

You can just take a stool sample. It's much cheaper. Sometimes there are places like the humane society that have a clinic that's much cheaper. It can end up costing $200-$300 to take a do to the vet.
