Help! Roo Ben has intestinal worms!
He can't hold his stool for very long, and I haven't had him long enough for us to communicate "need out" very successfully. He has pooped in the house about four times. This morning I heard him rouse about a half hour before our alarm went off. I didn't get up because all four animals would have awakened and wanted to be fed immediately, and I didn't want to mess up our schedule. When I got up, Roo Ben had left me a trail. Firm stool I could just pick up with a tissue. But it looks like he has worms :( I bagged a "sample."
I have e-mailed my foster coordinator for instructions.
The vet clinic the rescue uses is 'way the other side of Fort Worth, and with gasoline at nearly $3.60 a gallon, I really didn't want to have to go there! I wish I could just run the stool sample to my vet a mile down the street and have Pug Rescue reimburse me.
