Roundworms in Dogs – Symptoms, Causes and Treatments

Diagnosis:

A fecal sample from your puppy or dog can be examined under a microscope for the presence of roundworm eggs on a prepared slide by your veterinarian. A fecal inspection like this is usually included in a puppy’s first vet visit.

If the roundworm infection isn’t severe, the feces sample may be devoid of eggs. Because roundworms are so frequent in puppies, experts advise assuming the presence of roundworms in early puppies and treating them every few weeks.
