Not with my yorkies, but with my Shih Tzu. Did they look like a grain of rice? If so possibly tape worms. The last time precious had them all I had to do was get some pills from the vet and it cleared them right up.

I would have to say it happens alot to people...you can do a search on this site and just type 'worms' and find lots of information - also...look on the net to find out what kind - and most important.....visit/call your vet asap to get treatment for this problem - some worms are treatable with over-the-counter medication - but you have to know what you're treating first -
It gives me the willies but it's pretty common unfortunately......GOOD LUCK !!! You may want to check for fleas too - sometimes when a little one has worms - they also may have fleas or ear mites too -
it sounds like your puppy needs a good physical at the vets office...I hope everything turns out ok

Oh don't be too harsh on yourself! It happens to the best of us. It's usually very easy to clear them up and make your baby 100% worm free. TRUST ME.. the thought of them makes my skin crawl.. But my Zeus had all sorts of worms when I rescued him and ewwwww.. But I took him to the vet and they were all cleared up within weeks maybe even days! No worries! Take care!

Just tell your vet. Worms are not that uncommon. It can be gotten rid of fiarly easy with medication.

Very simple fix. Call your vet. make an appoinment and get your baby checked. Take a stool sample for the vet to look at under the microscope.
They will give your kid medication- you may need to go back a second time just to make sure they got all the worms. This is a very common thing and can be treated very easy. Just do not ignore the situation. If you have any other dogs good to have them checked also.
