ROUNDWORMS

Animal Scene - - VET VISIT -

Roundworms are usu­ally passed on to hu­mans through contact with soil or dirt con­tam­i­nated by dog or puppy fe­ces. In hu­mans, this can lead to vom­it­ing and di­ar­rhea. Dogs can also ex­pe­ri­ence the same symp­toms, and can trig­ger weight loss.

Medicines can re­move the in­fec­tion, but pre­ven­tion is best. Do make sure that chil­dren do not play in ar­eas where dogs are known to pass their waste. Adults should be care­ful about what they touch in such places, too.
