Roundworm

Roundworms are also called nematodes, they are 3 to 5 inches long and live in the intestines.

Roundworms in puppies and kitties:

All puppies and kitties that have roundworms most likely inherited them from their mother, either while in the womb or while nursing.

Puppies and kitties with roundworm can often show no symptoms. However it isn’t uncommon to see the worms in their vomit or diarrhea.

The symptoms of roundworms can include:

    • weight loss
    • distended belly(pot belly)
    • weakness
    • vomiting
    • diarrhea

Diagnosis:
1. When you have an infestation it looks like spaghetti in the stool.

2. If you suspect roundworms, a fecal exam will verify your suspicions.

Treatment
Regular deworming
