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.

Hi everyone, I’ve been browsing these forums since I got my husky about 4 months ago and something happened today which made me want to ask for your input. Ramsey is turning 6 months next week, he’s had all of his shots up until now. I’m feeding him taste of the wild (still transitioning into it but it’s almost completely TOTW now). Anyway, this morning while picking up his poop I noticed this was there.

I’ve been checking stuff online and he doesn’t seem to show any of the symptoms associated with having worms, but I also read that there may not be symptoms sometimes. Does it look like worms to you guys? Also, what exactly could have caused this? I feel so bad, should I go to the vet right away?

Yes definitely go to the vet and take that with! They'll be able to help you honestly for worms there usually are absolutely no symptoms. That looks like a roundworm. In my opinion, if you're ever thinking "Should I go to the vet for this?", you should always go to the vet and if not call them and ask their opinion.

I would go to the vet, take a stool sample and take that worm with you. Some worms are common and easy to get rid of with over the counter drugs if you know the worm and practice but others need prescriptions for deworming. It is not uncommon for a young dog to get worms. Most worms do not cause symptoms. A dog may become infected by sniffing or licking infected feces.
