I have a doggie medical ? do I ask it here?
We brought our puppy home from a wet more mild climate than what we have where we live. The climate she comes from suffers from an infestation of fleas. Our climate is cold enough they die off in the winter.
I've read that flea larve can cause intestenal worms and the worms can also be passed from the mama dog to the puppies.
Here is my question: Our Bella is 3.6 lbs, very little, but has terrible worms. Each morning when we take her out of her kennel her poor little bottom is covered in dead/dried worms.
We have gone through 2 doses of worm medicine (per the vet) He said if it doesn't work then she will need a 3rd. Also, last night I was scratching her chin and actually chased a flea across her throat trying to kill it.
What do I do? My poor little girl eats like she never gets fed and scratches like there is no tomorrow!
