You're probably thinking of Toxocara Canis, the common roundworm of the dog. Toxocara eggs are present in the faeces of dogs which have not been treated with the appropriate medication. Total blindness from Toxocara infection is exceptional. It is rare even for the sight of one eye to be totally lost, though vision can be impaired.
The answer is NO humans can not get worms from dogs
Left untreated, internal parasites like worms can cause your pet significant pain and eventually death due to malnutrition and/or anemia. Some intestinal worms (like hookworms and roundworms in dogs and cats) can also infect humans and cause severe damage to the internal organs.

Many things can cause common diarrhea in dogs such as worms, chocolate and coffee.
Humans are susceptible to roundworms, hookworms and tapeworms, all of which may also infest dogs. However, the human worms and the dog worms are different species and for the most part a worm from a dog cannot infect a human, and vice versa. Humans can also get pinworms, which are not found in dogs.
Yes. Actually, all mammals are born with worms. Worm medicine is available at the drugstore.
Yes And with humans tooResearch shows that vinegar is dangerous to both animals and humans.
Yes; some of them do.
Yes; they can be.
No, they can only infect suitable insect hosts.
Yes, dogs can cause problems including house damage and strains on relationships.
Toxocara, a type of worm larvae, can cause some damage to internal organs leading to pain, asthma and even blindness if they end up in the eye.
Yes, the roundworms that infect cats, dogs and racoons can infect humans who are called abberent hosts. These worms can cause brain damage, liver damage and blindness in humans. A very high percentage of puppies and kittens have these parasites and once in the environment the infective eggs can remain for 10 years or more in the evironment. This is why it is recommended to get puppies and kittens on a deworming program very early and remain on it until started on a monthly heartworm preventative.
They can be. Roundworms are adapted to infesting dogs and cats primarily, but they can also infest humans. When they do so, they can cause severe problems including visceral larval migrans (when the worms travel through the abdominal organs) and ocular larval migrans (when the worms travle through the eye). Both of these conditions can cause major medical problems, including liver failure, kidney failure and blindness.
There are several examples of parasitism in the world. A few are fleas on dogs, round worms in humans, and flat worms in cats.
Diarrhea in dogs can be caused an infection, worms, or diet changes. Another cause can be food allergies. Dogs often eat garbage or food not meant for them, such as chocolate.
Yes, a loud noise can damage a dogs ears just as it can with a humans.

No you cannot let dogs drink Clorox it will cause damage to the organs
They certainly can. If you know that your cat has worms, you need to treat the cat and the dog, as well as the humans in the household. Some worms, like tapeworm, are easily transmissible across different species.
