Default Worms in poop! With a picture...

Our recently adopted pup took a good poop this morning. Upon closer inspection I noticed a few white worms in it. Identified as tape worms, apparently they survived the "deworming" the shelter had provided. I have both the Ivermectin paste for horses (which states NOT to give to dogs)and Ivermectin tablets for humans. We go to the vet Monday but would like to get a head start on treatment. Any vets care to PM me a dosage for a 65# Great Pyrenees/golden retriever male? Maybe a few days isn't an issue? Thanks for looking. I knew you could not resist after the pin worm thread... gah!

FYI, pick up said poop so the worms do not become part of your yard!

Are you sure the pup hasn't been eating Gulp baits?

I adopted a Great Pyrenees in December and went through the same thing. My pup required 3 deworming treatments (although I really think they were gone after 2). I went to the vet because I wanted to establish care with my local vet, but I’m pretty sure you can buy deworming meds over the counter. Take a ride to your local pet store.

So just curious, did you do a full vet workup after adoption?

I'm not a vet but my dog got worms and were treated relatively easily and haven't returned. I would just wait for the vet myself and not self administer anything.

My dog got worms after we had her for a while and the vet said they generally come from mice. She did happen to catch a mouse in the yard a few weeks prior.

Just as you noticed I saw them in her poop and they were still wriggling, Freaked me out.

This is incorrect. They are definitely worms, just a different species of worms.

For our new puppy, the vet this year said a three treatment regimen regardless of seeing anything. It is apparently the new standard of care.

Tape worm segments.


Special wormer needed. Vet will need to see that picture and he/she will know what you need.

Intermediate vector is the Flea.
