Three common types of canine worms

Unlike the two previous canine worms, tapeworms are normally transmitted by fleas. They can also be transmitted to your dog if he eats animals that are infected. Tapeworms look like flat grains of rice. If your dog is infected with these canine worms, you will notice segments in his stool.

Although over-the-counter medications are suitable for hookworms and roundworms, they aren’t effective for dealing with tapeworms. Therefore, you will have to take your dog to the veterinarian for treatment.
