If you are like me you just found a rather long very skinny white worm and started freaking out.
WARNING: Graphic pictures below.
Lets learn what round worms are before talking about how to treat. Round worms are parasites that our puppies pick up from outside. They can be found in sticks, other animals poop, or from a bug that transmitted it from another source. This parasite lives in the stomach and makes our dogs feel very lethargic, and decreases their appetite. If left for to long the parasite will destroy the stomach and make the puppy so ill they will eventually pass.
First: Where did you find the worm, was it on the floor in your living room, in your dogs poop, or in your dogs vomit.
Second: If you found it on the living room floor like I did then your dogs might not have roundworms. Watch your dog very carefully the next few days, see if they are acting different, not as active as usual, not eating or drinking, or anything else out of the ordinary.
Third: If there is worms in your dogs stool or vomit its time to treat the problem. Now its time to decide how you want to treat your pup. Going to the vet is not always necessary if you can afford by all means, go to the vet and they will prescribe a medicine or something. If you can not afford to go to the vet there is a cheaper fix. With our dogs being so large it is not a cheap fix, but it is cheaper than the vet. The best round worm treatment I found was this one on amazon, it is all natural and extremely easy to administer. HomeoPet it contains 450 drops and for our GSD you need 15 drops 3 times a day for 2 weeks. That comes out to be about 630 drops so therefore you will need to order 2 containers but it still comes out to be cheaper then most other worming medicines and the vet.
Using HomeoPet is very easy. You put the chart on the back of the container to know how many drops you need for your pet. You than put that many drops onto your dogs food, in their water, or directly in their mouth. You can also use this as a preventive measures to ensure a healthy pup for years to come.
I really hope this helps some of yall with your pups.
