It is normal for puppies to have worms. Puppies can be infected in the womb and/or from the mother’s milk. It is important that you visit your local veterinary practice and purchase worm medication. Serious health problems may arise if left untreated. There are different products available on the market and the clinician will advise which is best suited for you pet.
It is also important that you ensure good hygiene standards due to the potential risk of infection to humans.
