What are the signs of worm infection?
If your dog is exhibiting any of the following symptoms it could be a sign that they have worms, if you in any doubt or concerned please seek veterinary advice:
- Loss of appetite - Serious worm infections can make dogs feel bloated and put them off their food
- Vomiting - some worm outbreaks can cause sickness and it may be possible to see worms in the vomit
- Potbelly - this symptom is more likely in puppies
- Dull coat - worms cause malnourishment in dogs, taking many nutrients from their host which can result in a dog's fur looking dull and lifeless (although this can be down to fleas or a bad diet)
- Scooting - some dogs suffering from tapeworm may 'scoot' along the ground to ease an itchy bottom
- Diarrhoea - more common in puppies than older dogs, diarrhoea can be a symptom of worms
