Help my maltese/cocker is licking and biting her anal for months. The vet gives us various medication but nothing works. No word that it is worms. Something is wrong. This is ongoing and getting worse. I need a real opinion. If not worms what else
Yes, but it could also be anal glands. The best way to see if your animal has worms is to check it's poop, that will tell you right away. If not could be anal glands, which are not a serious medical problem by any means, either are worms. Just call your vet, explain the symptoms your seeing, bring you animal in and either way the situation can be cleared up pretty quickly.
Yes, very much so, actually, it is one of the primary indicators that a dog has worms, in children, if they contract worms, you will find them scratching in that area
Yes they can and you need to go to a vet with a sample of the feces so they can see exactaly what kind of worms they are so you are treating the animal properly.
