    What makes you think that your doggie has worms - have you found any ?

    My vet advocates worming every 3 months and we have never had any problems with our dog or cat...

    I'm sure that it is easily treated with a tablet...

    Hope you get the answer you need...

    haha, she forgives you!

    Shes rubbing her ass all over the floor and moping around, shes winging for no apparent reason and has been crapping non stop, as if she has no control anymore, and was subsequently sick after what i suspect to be the cause - cat poo. Lush.

    Dont understand what posesses animals to try and eat other animals poo! im usually straight on teh case, but shes a sneaky bugger.


    yesterday our electric went out,a nd after half an hour of our neighbor trying to figure it out, it turned out boo had chewed through a wire, luckily not harming herself.. but this is SO unlike her, shes usually a very good, well behaved dog, that ignores anything that isnt food.. and shes never distructive! ah, could have had fried sausage for tea :eek:

    I worm my dogs every three months. You can now get a product called Advocate that treats worms & fleas and is just a quick & easy drop that you apply to the back of their neck. You can pick it up at the vets and it's much easier than trying to persuade them to eat tablets (mine always manage to eat the ham or cheese the tablet is in and then spit the tablet out!). Hope Boo gets better soon.

    Just had a thought .... the ass rubbing may be relating to their scent glands which are either side of their bottom - sorry if this is TMI - and these can get blocked.
    If it is this, then your vet will need to drain them for you - not a pretty job for you to have to do...

    Hope it is simply worms !!!
