TAPEWORMS

**ALL DOGS SHOULD BE TESTED**

This parasite is transmitted to dogs by either ingesting a flea or eating small rodents.  Unlike many other parasites, tapeworms are not contracted through stool or contaminated soil. Tapeworm segments are usually seen in the stool or around the anus.  Once out of the body the segments will dry and appear similar to a grain of rice or a sesame seed.

Tapeworms can diagnosed with fecal testing and treated with prescription dewormer.  Tapeworms can be easily prevented with routine flea control, such as Advantage or Frontline, and with yearly fecal testing.
