My boyfriend and I adopted a puppy from the animal shelter. The puppy has had bloody diaherra and doesnt have much of an appetite. Just last night she threw up a worm. From the research I've done I think it's a roundworm. We are going to carry her to the vet as soon as possible. My question is can she give the worms to my cats. I researched this and I know that both cats and dogs get roundworms, but there are diffierent kinds that affect dog and cats and then there is a kind that affects both. All I know is that cats and dogs both can get roundworms, but I don't know if they can pass them to each other. Does anyone know?
