Puppy wormed one week ago is it normal for small white worms to be present but no fecal matter?

You never mentioned what kind of worms your dog was treated. For hook and round worms an over the counter treatment may be enough. If you go to the vet they will give your dog Strongid-T, which will take care of the hook and round worms. If you are seeing white worms coming out of your dogs rectum or you see white worms in the fecal matter, your dogs has Tape worms. There is no over the counter treatment that will get rid of Tape worms. You must go to the vet who will give you a little pill to give to your dog. If your dog has tape worms you may also find tiny and I mean tiny little off white, sesame seed looking things in your dogs bedding. These are Tape worms that have crawled out of your dogs rectum and dried up and died. Sometimes this is the only evidence that a dog owner will see and wonder what the heck they are. Now you know.

Will a rat hurt an injured rat?

This very much depends on the gender, and social situation. Were these rats living together? If not, there is a high chance of the advantaged rat attacking, as this is highly likely to happen regardless of whether or not that rat is injured. Two Male rats are far more aggressive towards each other if they have never met, as both are fighting to be the dominant . Two females may fight too, regardless if one or the other is injured. Females tend to be more active and jumpy, while males tend to be lazier, but more aggressive.

Can rat terrier breed with lab?

All dog breeds can successfully mate and have puppies. The logistics can be a little hard though (ie how does a Maltese reach a Great Dane) but technically yes, it is possible. If the lab is female and on heat (and is receptive), holding her down on a beanbag to keep her still and, err, reachable, may solve the height differential.

How much does a rat cost?

At Petco they mainly sell very small girl rats for six dollars and the bigger ratyou want the more it costs.I dont recommend these because they dont let you pick these up or inspect them.I saw one that was bleeding and it seemed pretty agressive.At Petsmart rats are also mainly female.Dumbo rats are twelve dollars and Fancy rats are ten.These rats seem a lot calmer, plus you get to inspect them.I also recommend adopting one from a breeder or from an animal shelter because these rats do not have such a high risk of being sick as the others,
