You can not tell if your pet has worms just by looking at them or at their stool (poop). Intestinal parasites, although more common in young pets than older ones, can pose a significant risk factor to both your pet’s health and human health – especially young children, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems. Because of this, at Sault Ste. Marie Animal Clinic, we recommend performing a fecal floatation test on a stool sample from your pet at least once a year.
