Default Worms

This morning my puppy vomited a couple of round worms. Is this normal for an 11 week old pup?

No. It is not normal. Vomiting worms means he has a heavy infestation. Call a vet to get him dewormed and a check up.

Here is another thread on puppies and worms
New puppy. Worms!

My boy had worms tape worms when he was around 12 weeks....we think he got it from the lake the first time we took him...he ate sand that probably had fleas in it.

The vet gave him Drontal & it cleared fast. But you have to get your pup to the vet right away worms can cause a lot grief to the body. Bring a stool sample....if you can't the vet will have to take your word that you indeed saw worms.

Thanks for the help! I took her to the vet the day before for her shots and she got wormed. When I called the vet he said she's just expelling the worms from the wormer.

Glad you talked to the vet. My 9 week old pooped out some large roundworms after being dewormed. Vet said he was just flushing them out but in a couple weeks he should be dewormed again. Might want to see if your vet recommends the same thing

Yes, worming needs to be done in a series. If your puppy was wormed yesterday, the worms will still be dying off.
Get it done in 10 days and then at least 1x more (at your vet's recommendation).
