Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Worms!! What to expect? Empty
PostSubject: Worms!! What to expect?   Worms!! What to expect? EmptyWed Oct 02, 2013 8:48 am

So took Django to the vet yesterday. And he is a big boy a whooping 33.2 pounds at 13 weeks. He was very healthy but they sent us home to get a fecal because his records that I got show that he was never dewormed. We get home and little man poops and sure enough there are 2 worms in it, dead. (I gave him heartguard that morning so wondering if it killed a few). So I scoop up the poop and bagged the worms and go back to my vet immediately. Give them the poop and show them the worms and got a 3 day dewormer on the spot. So my question is, what fun am I in for? Are there going to piles of dead worms coming out of him? He has some pretty runny poo. Any advice, horror stories, or support would be appreciated. I have never dealt with worms before so not sure what to expect.

I've had to deworm Mishka twice now (this dog eats everything he can off the ground) and never had a bad experience. Mishka's poop softened a bit but if they're bad enough in him, you'll probably see lots of dead worms in his poo. Which that in itself is just freaky. Lol.

Kye has been dewormed twice and has had the runs off and on since we got him. I worry he still has them. Yes you will see worms, and if your vet didn't tell you, make sure you pick up each time and keep Loki away from his poo to avoid... re-ingestion. best of luck.

I went through the same thing when Dizzy was around his age, and honestly its not as horrible as you might expect but it did give me the heebie jeebies. I'm not sure what type of worms Django has, but the ones that came out of Dizzy were long, white, and skinny. Spaghetti like. Some were alive (yeah, icky, they were squirming), and some weren't but overall it was only about 1-2 days for them to clear out. The heart guard pill probably got most of them anyway, which is exactly what happened with Dizzy. For me, it just made me wanna wash my hands 20 times a day, and of course gave me the creepy crawlies. Honestly though, it was way less horrifying than I expected.
