Looks can be deceiving
I took him to the vet this morning and it turns out our baby has a tapeworm. Thankfully, it is not a tapeworm that humans can get (you would have to swallow an infected flea), and it is generally not harmful to Angus. I got meds to kill the tapeworm (two treatments just to be sure), in which Angus will essentially digest it so I should not see any more worm bits. He is in good health and free of fleas, so we should not be expecting any more worm drama. I also took in the dog’s morning poop to get tested to see if she got any worms/parasites from the cat. Hopefully she will have a clean bill of health. I swear, MKD and I spend more on the animals than we do on ourselves.
But in the past two days, I have learned more about tapeworms that can infect cats and dogs than I ever wanted to know. Nasty buggers.
