Worms, fleas, what am I doing wrong!??
Please someone help me! Two months ago we adopted a German Shepherd/Wire haired pointer puppy mix from the pound. A month after we brought her home she had bloody stool ALL OVER MY HOUSE. I thought for sure it was parvo! Cleaned my house with bleach and kept her isolated to be safe. Took her to the vet expecting the worse. We were told she had an infestation of tapeworms. We dewormed her per our vets instructions and thought that was the end of the story. Three weeks later, the same thing!! So we dewormed her again.
THEN, I found a tapeworm in my child's diaper, AND MORE tapeworm Larva in my puppys stool. When we found out the puppy had worms, we were extremely diligent on cleaning up her stool in the yard, so I thought there was no way my kids could get it! We have clipped their nails, and washed their hands before they eat...I called the pediatrician, got a smear done, came back negative. My son has lost a ton of weight! So I found a dewormer over the internet for my family. Dewormed my dog again. There is sci fi stuff coming out of my childs diaper here, so I know it's working!
Treated my yard for fleas/ticks/bugs twice, flea collars on the dogs, bleached my house, showered every morning, cleaned the sheets EVERY. DAY.
Today, I JUST went out to clean up my dogs stool, and there is MORE larva in her poop. I am just a mess! I am at the end of my sanity almost! Is there something out there that I am missing!? Does this stuff really happen!? What am I doing wrong!??
