He should have been dewormed by the breeder at least 3 times if not 4 times before leaving them. Most breeders start deworming pups at 14 days old, because the pups get round worms from the dam's milk (even if she has been dewormed and is in excellent health ). Then the pups are dewormed every two weeks............

Call the vet, the dewormer isn't expensive and a breeder should be shot for not deworming their litter properly, considering it is such a minor expense.

I believe he was dewormed three times. I'd have to pull out his records.

Is it possible that these worms could be from when he was born and just now showing signs?

Duke, the "foster" I had last month had round worms, so its possible that truffles caught them from him somehow? I kept them apart after I noticed Duke had worms.

Dogs can have worms without showing any symptoms. Worms dont always show up in their poop. You are taking a risk with their life when you dont worm. Even adult dogs need wormed every year.

My moms pug died from worms. Worms showed up in her poop two days before she died. She was 5.

Again ... disagree ~ I've never had a vet suggest worming when their samples are clear .

I have never dewormed my dog's Oldest being 7, I get them tested every year. Why give them unnecessary chemical's.

roundworms look like spaghetti noodles. If they were short little things, it's likely tapeworms. I don't breed, but new puppies/kittens get dewormed if I don't have a vaccine history. (and we dewormed the new adult cat as well, since she was outside before picked up as a stray)

I don't do yearly dewormings on my adult dogs, though, as they aren't out and about in strange areas. I periodically have their stools checked, though, just in case. I've, thankfully, yet to have any a dog with worms.

You can disagree all you want BUT if you were breeding in this day and age EVERY Vet would recommend that you take a preventive approach and deworm pups starting at 14 days. They know for a fact that round worms are transferred from the mother to the pups and why would anyone take the risk of their litters health by not doing as recommended by the latest research??? To do otherwise imo, is foolish. I know for a fact that my dogs eat things, therefore they are dewormed and since it isn't recommended to deworm a bitch with one month of breeding we have to assume that she can pass them to her pups. Therefore deworming the pups as a preventive.

It is like raising a baby (human) years ago, people use to put babies to bed with bottles..............now we know just how much damage that can do to the teeth. So people are advise not to do it.

Just because something was routine, acceptable and recommended 30 plus years ago, doesn't mean it applies today.

And if you didn't have round worms,...................you got lucky. Just the same as if you put your babies to bed and it didn't rot their teeth.............you got lucky.

Try Googling it..........or better yet, why not call every vet in the book in your area and get their opinion.

Here just one source:
