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.

Only parasitic worms adapted to living in digestive tracts can do so. Worms of that type live and grow in the intestines rather than the stomach.

Animals can't transfer worms to humans. No.

It could be because there are tiny baby worms in your stomach. If there are worms in your poop that means that you have worms and you should go and get medicine to get rid of them.

If you have them, they do. But intestinal worms in humans in the western world is rare.

Birds catch worms by stepping on the ground the worms will think it's rain so they will go to the surface and then the birds will take the worm and eat/give it to it's babies.

No, worms do not have a stomach--they do have a crop and a gizzard, as part of the digestive tract. The mouth of the worm connects directly to this tract, which runs the entire length of it's body.

No, humans cannot catch worms from chickens. The reason for this is that parasites are species specific, so there is no hazard to human health.

Worms can be harmful if they are ingested and become parasitic in the body. These worms can actually create holes in the intestines or the stomach and kill the host.

Worms do not have eyes. Worms do have light sensitive cells.

I think worms live in dirt because they catch their food in the soil. So that is why worms live in dirt.

Well sort of if you count worms. Worms are a stomach issue if you do not give your dog up to date treatment ( usually a pill.) I hope that answers your question!
