    DefaultOMG... what the FREAK are these??!! (1 nasty pic)

    Do NOT go any further down in this thread (nasty pic below) unless you have a stomach of steel... I'm not sh*tting you. (no pun intended), but I hope someone can help.

    Long story short, Henery had sudden onset diarrhea starting Monday, and has had it off and on despite being on chicken and rice, but was otherwise acting his normal bouncy, silly self, eating and drinking fine, so I wasn't too worried. BUT... usually his diarrhea resolves within a few days, so today I called our vet's office. Our regular vet wasn't there, but the one who was said to bring in a poop sample, and she'll start him on Flagyl, and to go from there.

    ***** do not go any further unless you have a strong stomach... you have been warned! *****














    WHAT THE FREAK ARE THESE?!!! :vomit:


    Henery pooped them out 5 minutes ago, still wriggling within his poop. Thank GOD his vet's office is open tomorrow.. I'm bringing these nasties in.

    I seriously think I'm going to hurl now. :vomit:

    Looks like roundworms. Have your vet check them.

    I don't know what kind of worms, but definitely worms. One looks like a flathead on it.

    Poor Henery. Poor you!!!!

    Seriously Laura, I was dry heaving as I was pulling those things out of his poop. Good thing I've got latex gloves at home.

    Okay, so how long do these things LIVE inside of him??!! He ate a dead (not freshly dead either) squirrel last summer... the whole thing. I wonder if these are what was causing his chronic soft poops this whole time??!! He did have the Cadillac of all fecals done in November but it came up negative for parasites. I wonder if they missed something??

    :vomit:

    Uh... thanks Laura.

    Off to learn more than I ever cared to know about roundworms...

    Seriously gives a new meaning to Henery's nickname "Wiggles".

    ohhhh living worms ...cool........... :vomit:


    the problem with fecal checks is many parasites cycle and are only visible when in certain phases of the cycle ... but I suspect if he'd had them for a year you would have seen something before now...

    but YES they certainly could be a huge cause of loose stool

    I am now at a point when I'm sure it's parasites we treat anyhow even if a negative fecal turns up - I prefer a positive as then you are sure you are treating with the best meds but treating has stopped goopy poo more times then I can count

    he and you will feel much better soon

    Looks like round worm... very healthy round worms......it will take a good healthy dose of deworming to rid of those. My Yukon had those as a pup....yes...gag me....so I really made sure all dogs are dewormed and on interceptor to keep dewormed. Havent had an episode in 10 years since.
