Is this normal for 9 weeks old GSD puppy? (Warning, Graphic Pics)

Hi guys,

I brought my puppy to the vet this morning and got his 9 weeks old shot and De-wormed pill. Later on tonight, I found this <pictures> in his pooOOp. Is it normal?






It looks like a worm or some kind of virus, I have no clue. I also touch it, it felt like a rubber.

And yes, I washed my hands.

Regards, Kevin

Those are round worms in his poop - so the wormer is working. Very normal for a 9 week old to be pooping out roundworms after being wormed. Might still see them in a couple more bowel movements, but they should be gone after that. ( I added the warning to the subject line, I've seen plenty of roundworms, but the close-up pics you posted were a bit unexpected).

icky....even though he may be clear after the first treatment, you may have to treat every two weeks for a few treatments. Roundworms are common in all puppies.

Take stool samples in every time you go for his puppy boosters. One other thing, don't let the vet give the rabies vax with the other puppy shots. They should be spaced out by 2 weeks. Dr. Jean Dodds' Pet Health Resource Blog | 2013 and 2014 Canine Vaccination Protocol - W. Jean Dodds, DVM

Definitely wash your hands and completely dispose of the poop. Children can be infected by round worms, so you may want to be careful with your children around the puppy for a few days.

That's a worm! It can also be that your puppy is getting rid of them.

That is really bad case worms you need really good wormer from vet as that's seriously big for pup I'd say never been wormed by breeder but can make pup very poorly if not treated asap

as noted - it is a roundworm....get some meds from the vet if he has not yet been wormed....

Used to be that wormer was given 2 days in a row, then repeated 10 days or 2 weeks later for 2 days....the cycle of egg to adult worm are treated....if I see worms in a young pup after the first dose of wormer, I do 3 days in a row, wait 10, reworm - then do it again a third time after another 10 days....

All pups are born with worms they say....these are the easiest to treat .....the big thing is to not let infested feces sit on the ground as the eggs can be deposited via contact, then picked up again by the dog and he gets reinfested
