Q. I just got a 9 week old puppy and tonight she started vomiting worms??
A. Intestinal parasites are just one possible cause. Monitor for other signs such as diarrhea, lethargy or loss of appetite. Submit a stool sample to your veterinarian for a definitive diagnosis. See your vet if you notice any of the above signs as dehydration can develop and is a very real concern in puppies. Withhold food for 12 hours. Allow small amounts of water or unflavored PediaLyte. Resume feeding a bland diet (1:1 ratio of plain boiled boneless chicken and plain white rice). Feed in small, frequent amounts waiting at least one hour between feedings. If the vomiting stops, transition slowly to the regular diet. If not, see your veterinarian.
