The first thing you need to do is try to identify what kind of worms your dog has. Once you've done this, go to your local pet store and ask for worming medication specific to the worms you are trying to treat. It would be easiest to take a stool sample to your local vets office and have them identify and prescribe the appropriate medication. All you need is the stool sample and the weight of your pet. Hope this helps.

2nd Answer: If your dog has intestinal worms you can give him a herbal formula called Inulin PK.

3rd answer if you can not physically see them in the dogs faeces but it shows symptoms of worms or are just worried, take it to a vet then let them figure out what's best for your dogs. If you give your dog a heart worm tablet when they have heart worm it can be very lethal and most likely will kill the dog so if you are concerned take him to a vet and they will test and see what's wrong

No, there is no such internal parasite in a dog called a Brown worm.

What kind of worm is white and flat and is coming out a dog's butt?

I believe it's called a tape worm. You need to get the dog to a vet. They will treat him for worms and probably give you something to give to the dog at home. It is possible for animals to die of worms if not treated. yes its a tapeworm, you can treat it with the wormers you find at your local supermarket just make sure you adjust the dose for the wieght of the dog ..the dosage isnt universal I do believe that would be a tapeworm (tapeworm segments to be exact). In any case, you should bring the dog to a veterinarian. There the dog can be tested for any other intestinal worms it may have that cannot be physically seen, and it can be treated for any and all worms with a quality dewormer on a specific schedule over a period of time. I have never heard of dewormers being available at the local supermarket, but even if they are there you shouldn't trust them.

What things does a dog eat in order to catch stomach worms?

Feces from another dog or animal that has had worms. Usually for an outdoor animal. My Dad was raised knowing that a dog catches stomach worms by walking on the ground. The worms then enter their skin and eventually the dog starts coughing and when it does it coughs up the original worms and then swollows them. Therefore the worms enter the stomachs. Dogs typically gain worms from eating other dog's crap. This is especially true if the other dog who produced the fecal matter had worms. Dogs can also catch stomach worms by being in the same lot as another dog who has worms or in a lot that contained a dog who once had stomach worms. Worms can enter a dog via the mouth, anus, cuts, and other surfaces. Worms can live in the ground for 10 years or more. Therefore, it is important to move a dog lot far away from the original location before placing another dog in the fence lot. There is no way to get rid of worms out of the ground. Some people believe placing bleach or other cleaners or lime will get rid of them, but it doesn't.
