View Full Version : Help !! My New Puppy
Hey how are you all doing today? , Well as some of you know I just got my new puppy today *Miniature Schnauzer* well i'm kinda worrie .. I just got him home about 4 hours ago.. and know when he "pooped" sorry could not find a next way to say it. It's like he has some white worms or something .. and a min ago i was playing with him and seen something long and white sticking out of his bum :( , I'm not sure if it's because he just seen the vet and got deworm.. " but then again i'm not sure if he did when the breeder took him to the vet yesterday. befor he got to me. I contacted the breeder and left a msg.. but at the moment she's at work so.. theres nothing really i can do untill she gets home tonight.
Should I call a vet befor i chat with the breeder?:(

I would ask your breeder for all the paperwork on her vet visit. Sometimes when the pups get wormed the worms come out within 24 hours. Make sure you pick up the poop right away, you don't want her walking through it and reinfecting herself. If your breeder isn't able to provide the paperwork, get an immediate appt with your vet!

Nothing major to worry about, your dog has worms. If they are alive you need to have the dog wormed at the vet. If the dog was already wormed, they will be dead. If they are alive, you will want to wash your hands really good after touching the dog because they can transfer to humans. A visit to the vet is the only way to get rid of them.
O I do understand , I have the papers he has been deworm about 4 times with the breeder , I dont know if thats good or not:( and yes the worms are alive.
And for some reason now he's not "Pooping" I dont know why , But he seems like he really needs to go and just cant:(

If those worms are alive, I would still take him to the vet. I know there are a few different kind of worms so maybe he was dewormed for one kind but not the other. Good luck and keep us updated.

No biggie. My guy had this when he was little. I just got some over the counter dewormer at the pet store and after about three successive tries they were terminated. But just in case, see a vet.
