I have a question.
Our 11 month old vomited just a little this AM and when I was cleaning it I found what looked like a 4 inch long white worm in it. Had like a pink faint colored stripe down it??????????? I have neve had a dog throw up worms before....can that happen?
I see that no one else is in here and looking at your last posts about them not being on HW pills, I would say call the vet. NOW
Thanks for your response.....they have been on pills EXCEPT the last 4 or so months through the winter.......
Oh ok, I was thinking never. I still would call the vet. Good luck, I hope all is well.
Yep, get thee to the vet and take the worm with you! Probably intestinal parasites, but you need to get it checked NOW.
Round worms. Take a stool sample to the vet.

While you in there, ask questions. I believe he/she will give you some yellow stuff to put down their throat. But it sounds like your dog is getting a hold of something carrying the parasite. Crickets, another animals poop that is a carrier, mice? birds? :-X
You can worm your pet but if they go out a week later and eat a carrier....boom they got them again.
