• My dog has worms, but when I gave him a dewormer it only worked for a short time and now they're back. What else can I do?

    I recommend that you take your pet into see your veterinarian as soon as possible. What you are describing sounds like it could be worms. There can also be other causes of this.

    If it is worms, there are many different types of worms in dogs. The treatment will depend on what type of worm that he has. There are even some worms that can be passed to people. The sooner that he is seen and treated the lower the risk for you and your family.
