Q. My dog may have worms, appears to be white and small, saw what I thought was one the other day in her stool, any suggestions? Cannot afford vet

Answered By

A. You need to get a good quality worm treatment. The most effective ones are available from the vet. You can try an over the counter one but you may find it isn't good enough and end out having to pay for the one from your vet. I would recommend just going for the best treatment, it is more cost effective in the end.
