Ok, so Mambo had tapeworms. I got the vet to give me some meds. I gave them to him Saturday. How long does it take to get rid of them, will the worm just come out? Will I see it? I have been trying to look, but he either poops when I am not around and by the time I get there its to late to tell, or its dark.
Dogs get tapeworms fromt he fleas right?
Yes, usually they do come from fleas. If he's had them; he's prolly been pooping little segments of them that look like rice.
Yes he did poop the segments, thats how I knew he had them. But how do I know its gone. Will the whole worm come out, or will I just stop seeing the little segments?
I've never seen the long one, myself (thank GOD!!) Just keep a watch on the poop and make sure you're not seeing anymore of the segments. Cuz sooner or later; those things raise their ugly heads!!
