My 12 week old lab mix had her first round of deworm 6 days ago. I check her stools every time she's done for worms, and I never saw any. Last night at 2am, my boyfriend woke up and noticed her butt had worms crawling out of it (gross, I know) and she was dripping bloody poop with worms. We're worried for her I know I should take her to a vet asap, but I have work in an hour and won't be done for 6 hours before I'm able to. Do you guys have any advice for me in the meantime? I hope my puppy doesn't need to go to the ER .. =[
Also, my pup is in the stages of getting her vaccinations and deworming. She's already had her first round of vaccinations and is due for another one in 2 weeks. She lives in a house with 3 other dogs, two of whom are still babies and don't have vaccinations yet. (These aren't mine) Could this possibly be the reason why she still has worms?
Any information would be nice...I'm stressed about my pup's health.
Call your vet.
Explain the circumstances.
Take her in, if you can't take her in yourself, have someone else take her to the vet for you, I think she should be seen today. It could just be giardia and tape worms... which is treatable... but what you describe sounds a lot worse.
I agree....she needs to go to the vet to make sure its not something more serious. Call your vet first and see what they suggest. Maybe you could go into work a little late?

I don't know where you work but..Call in and say hey i have an pet emergency i may be a few min late.My mom did that when the boys got out and Tank was hit and they said o.k.. She is the manager at a wal-mart. If you can not ask a family member or friend to! She needs to be seen today to make sure nothing is wrong!

the other dogs could very well be the issue. If you haven't picked up all of the poop it will keep giving. Also, if they are roundworms, you can infect yourself too if you aren't washing your hands that well.

I took her in as soon as I got off work. Vet says she has tapeworms and gave her a dose of deworming medicine. She's due for another tapeworm shot in 2 weeks, which happens to be the same week she's getting her second round of vaccinations and her second round of roundworm shot. Poor baby, she's probably going to be mad at mommy for taking her to that "lady who pokes me with needles" !
Oh, and the place I work is not too understanding about "pet issues." I doubt they would've let me off so easily had I called in late for work. Oh well, I just hope pup is okay now, I guess I'll just have to wait and see if she continues to have blood coming out of her behind.

Try not to have all the shots done at the same time. Space them out. It'll be much easier her immune system.
