Roundworms In Puppies

Roundworms In Puppies

There are five types of worms that can be found in puppies. Among the five types of worms, roundworms are the most common. Roundworms are circular and tubular in shape. Generally they are 2-4 inches in size but it can grow up to 7 inches in a short period of time. There are two common types of roundworms: Toxascaris leonina and Toxacara canis.

Roundworms are parasites that are passed to the puppy in the womb through egg or larvae. They can also be passed to the puppies though the milk of the mother. Aside from this, puppies can also get roundworms if they get close to the feces of an animal with the said parasite or through the feces of their mother. Consuming prey infected with roundworms can make the puppies acquire the infection as well. The larvae moves through the liver, then to the muscles, then to the lungs and then to the puppies’ intestines where they feed on the partially digested food.

Puppies encounter difficulty in swallowing and urinating if they get infected with roundworms. You will know if your dog’s puppies are infected with roundworms if they suffer from frequent vomiting, diarrhea, dull hair, weight loss, lack of appetite, weight gain in the belly, slow growth and problems while passing stools. If roundworms are not detected on time, it can result to the puppies’ death.

If the puppy is 3 weeks old, de-worming is then required because the puppies might have been infected by roundworms because its body resistance is low. Seek the advice of the veterinarian first before starting with any treatment as it may cause side effects on puppies. The common medicines to control roundworms are Fendendaole, Pyrantel and Piperazine. The puppies can develop resistance to any infection starts when they are already about 6 months old.

The puppy’s stool will have to undergo microscopic examination before the veterinarian can give recommendation about the medication needed by the puppy. During the treatment process, the roundworms are not totally killed for medications only allow the puppy to remove the roundworm from its body through its stool. Treatment should be continued for at least two months for roundworm larvae may still be present inside the puppy’s intestines.

On the treatment for roundworms, homeopathy is considered to be a safe procedure. You can get rid of the roundworms in the puppies’ intestines by mixing 2 cloves of garlic with 2 teaspoons of oat barns or grated carrots. Ensure the garlic is chopped. Keep the area where the puppies do their bowel movement clean by mixing 1% of bleach with water. Through this, you can remove the roundworms’ eggs sticky outer coating. Treating the roundworm infection on your puppies can be quite a task so it is best to follow the steps of proper dog care to keep the symptoms from arising again. Regularly check your puppy’s body to see if there are changes or presence of other kinds of parasites.

Disinfect and maintain proper cleanliness of the surrounding. Never leave dog food open for a long time. Instead, dispose it if your dog doesn’t want to eat it. You can also deworm your dog during the last stages of her pregnancy to help lessen the infestation. Remember to deworm your puppy.

My Pillow Pets – Best Pillows for Toddlers

Parents often have troubles in receiving youngsters to bed. Actually, little ones would usually need a soft and cuddly stuffed toy during their sleep. It is also a confirmed approach to hold them sound asleep, considering that a cuddly toy will give them a sense of security and serve as an awesome companionship to them! Having said that, there are actually a lot of teddy bears or plush toys on the marketplace and parents could be pretty confused which to choose.

Personally, I would advocate My Pillow Pets given that it combines a cuddly toy too as a pillow. It’s quite wonderful! You will get two functions by finding only one solution, it really is worth the cost. Basically, there’s a strap in the waist of your toy. You’ll be able to basically tie it as much as turn into a soft chenille pet. Meanwhile, when you need to have a pillow, you are able to just untie its belly and it’s going to quickly transform into a beautiful pillow. Children would undoubtedly appreciate to lay on it and would not whine anymore through bedtime. The truth is, this is gaining popularity amongst adults also.

Some of the stuffed animals are my favorites: Lady Bug, Playful Penguin, Lavender Unicorn and many more. The price is around $25 for an 18″ pillow pet. If you think that 18″ is slightly too large, you may want to take a look at the 11″ pets (it is priced at around $16). I think that since it’s a combination of both toy and pillow, it’s still worth purchasing. These lovely plush toys are washable on gentle cycle. You may want to do some cleaning of it on and off to ensure it’s hygienic. And yes, it’s machine washable and the cleaning can be hassle-free.
