dog-sittingWorms are the most common health problem for a dog.  This problem is very treatable with the large variety of dog wormer products on the market.  First of all, it’s important to know if you are diagnosing the correct problem. Here are some symptoms that it is a worm problem.

  1. You see visible feces or worms on your dog.
  2. You see worms around you dogs rear. Tapeworm may appear as small moving segments which later dry out to resemble grains of rice.
  3. Your dog is scratching or rubbing himself  against the furniture. Signs of itchiness could be a sign of a gland problem rather than worms.
  4. Vomiting with visible worms.
  5. Weakness, increased appetite with weight loss can indicate that your dogs have worms. The worms steal your dogs nutrition causing these symptoms.
  6. Bloated stomach or belly.
  7. Diarrhea with blood in it.

Always check with your vet who will put you on the right track in treating your dog.
