One of the most common health problems found in dogs is the infection of worms or parasites, primarily in the lungs or intestines. These infections are usually caused by playing in infested grounds or soil, drinking stagnant water, or being bitten by fleas or rodents. In such cases, it is always suggested to deworm your dogs on a regular basis, even if they appear to be in perfect health.

Common types of worms which might affect your pet are

  1. Heartworms
  2. Roundworms
  3. Hookworms
  4. Tapeworms
  5. Whipworms

There are many ways in which dogs can be infected by worms

A few of them are:

  1. Ingesting contaminated soil directly
  2. Through mother to unborn puppies
  3. Eating infected meat

Symptoms of worms in dogs

Most dogs show no or very few symptoms of worms unless they are severely infected. A few symptoms which indicate worms in dogs are:

  1. Weight Loss, Diarrhea
  2. Dry hair
  3. Vomiting
  4. Rubbing its bottom or scooting
  5. Visible worms in feces
  6. Low Energy
  7. Change in appetite
  8. Blocked Intestine
  9. Pneumonia
  10. Convulsions and seizures


It is essential to give your dog regular deworming treatments, especially if you have children in the house. Puppies are at high risk of worms and skin problems because of their weak immune systems at that age.
