• My puppy, Buttons was just in on 12/9 and has been dewormed, but I think he has worms based on his specimen today. Is that normal or would it require an additional treatment in-between our next office visit on 12/30? Thanks, Sara

    Hi Sara,
    I recommend that you call and talk to your local veterinarian about this. Usually any dead worms would pass in the feces within 24 hours after the deworming. If you are seeing worms in the feces a week later, it is not likely due to the previous deworming. Your vet can get some more information from you and recommend what is best for Buttons.
