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.

Okay so the situation is that we just got a 9 week old husky puppy seems like more of a rescue though since we got her and she had ticks and has worms. She has been to the vet twice so we are getting those things taken care of right now. Well the issue is that my 1 year old Husky he got the chance to eat some of the puppies feces I know gross!!!!!!!  but it happened XD I do not know if there were actual worms in it but since the puppy has worms there is a big chance it was infected. Should I take him to the vet to get tested, is that always effective? Is it safe to deworm a dog if they may or may not have worms. And he is on Trifexis every month if that makes a difference.

Here is info on trifexis:

Depending on what worms the pup has, your 1 yr old may be protected.

Worms are extremely common in puppies. Pretty much ALL puppies have worms, whether you go to a good breeder or not. Amy is right, most likely your older dog is fine, just keep an eye on him and if you see any changes in his stool, or energy level then get him checked out.

Then your older dog should be fine, Trifexis works for those evil parasites. Good to hear.

Any time a new dog comes home the whole kennel goes through deworming WITH the new addition.
