Q. I got a lab puppy.this evening.she start throwing up.she has worms that look like noodles.I'm taking her to my vet at 8.am.she seems to be constaped.
A. Roundworms are the most common intestinal parasite in pups. If she vomited up long, white or light brown worms, be highly suspicious that she has roundworms. Carefully scoop up the worms in a plastic bag. Your vet will confirm what they are at the appointment. Do not feed her any food, allow small amounts of water or unflavored PediaLyte. The good news is that the worms are easily treated. Your vet will give a dewormer in the clinic and you will likely need to repeat it once or twice more in the coming weeks. The constipation may be related or it may be stress related from being in a new home.
