Just wanting to get some information on worms....how do dogs get worms?? what are the symptoms?? how are they treated?? what causes them??

I am just asking cause Thai still has diahrea. And I check his stools samples, I dont see anything there. But they are going to test his stool sample and see if thats the cause??

I am just curious, what the remedy for worms is?? And is there anything I can do at home to help him in the meantime/??

He is active, eating, drinking, and being his normal self, but has diahrea and has had it for 2 days now. I am worried.

Pls advice
:confused:

Worms are very common in dogs. You did the best thing by taking in a stool sample. If worms or eggs are found, the vet will give you a prescription for the specific type of worm and may suggest a regular worming program on an annual bases. http://www.canismajor.com/dog/worms.html This is a link which should answer some of your questions. There are tons of them online, just search on Canine Worms.
