Hello this is Zephyr Clarke-Dolberg with Miami Dog Training in Miami, Florida. In this clip we're going to talk about identifying dog worms. So many different kinds of worms that dogs get, but some of the most common come from swallowing a flea and when your dog poops you will see little rice looking worms in their poop that's basically from eating a flea and the worms that they do get. There's also whip worm, whip worm a lot of times can be detected by a bloody stool, diarrhea and some of the symptoms may be the dog's not, even if the dog's eating, it's losing weight because the worms are getting the nourishment and not them. We also have ringworms which affect people and dogs as well and can be transmitted back and forth. So something to look for in a ringworm would be same thing like humans, a ring basically under, that you would look for in the fur, you might be able to find it but basically a ring in the skin that's just discolored.
