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.

PostSubject: Roundworm in Dog Bed   Sat Apr 02, 2016 9:58 pm

So I purchased a new bed for my 8 week old husky this morning. It is almost 10:00 and I just found what appear to be roundworms in the crevice of her bed. I was planning on making a vet appointment for Monday but should I take her tomorrow? Is it possible that they would show up in her bed like that and not her stool?

Doug, this may sound condescending but ... you're suggesting that you think you've found roundworms without either vomit or feces?  Uh, no, it's VERY unlikely that they'd show up like that.

ETA: of course this is my opinion but worms aren't something to get overly upset about. Puppies (and dogs in general really) can get worms from all sorts of places. If it's the difference between an emergency visit on Sunday ($$$$$$$) or a regular visit on Monday ($$) I'd personally hold off till Monday.

Thank you so much for the post.. i will take a picture of what I found. You have kind of made me feel at ease about it. I'm probably just a new father freaking out haha.

Ugh... all this talk about worms is making me feel the creepy crawlies... 3 years ago we bought Colby a bed from Kmart and 2 days I was petting him and found what I thought was a tick. Turns out it was a dang bedbug. When I checked his bed, it was infested with them. By that time it was too late. We got rid of the bed, but in those 3 days they had already spread. Took him and the 2 cats out of the house and bombed it, washed them outside (have you ever tried to bathe a cat in a kiddie pool?), but still had them. Had to get rid of my bed, my couch, my living room and bedroom carpet, re-bomb the house, and then move furniture out of each room, inspect the furniture, and clean each room thoroughly. It was a complete nightmare. There are still nights where I feel like things are crawling on me.

Our mako (also from Maine) just tested positive for roundworm. He gladly gulped down 2 pills, had a couple extra poops and should now be all good. It was creepy at first, but now I've realized relatively normal.

So just to inform you guys.. my girl just threw up a bunch of worms. I am calling the vet right now. I think the worms in her bed where once she threw up and everything dried before I found it.
