Default Type of worm

I know there are not a lot of people on here but between us all there are many years of owning dogs.

In September I had Bonnie out for a walk and when she pooped, it was full of little white worms, maybe a quarter of an inch long and about the thickness of the lead in a pencil (not roundworms). My dogs were due for their worming so I wormed everybody with Dolpac. I usually used Drontal but they changed to this one, that was Sept. 12.

Today there was a poop filled with those same little worms. I gathered up a sample and took it into the Vet. They informed me that they did not know what kind of worm they were and to just worm her again. Not much help and I am not even sure it was Bonnie's poop, just know it was one of the four big dogs.

I would really like to know what kind of a worm it is before "just worming" again. I would expect a Vet to know what kind of worm, or at least try and find out. Any guesses?

Is there another vet in town you can go too? Take a picture of the worms, post it here and maybe someone can identify it.
It would be much better if you could get a vet to id it!

I would redose the dolpac. It is broad spectrum. Have you considered using trifexis? Or Heartgard and Nexgard/Bravecto/Simparica? The Heartgard will prevent intestinal parasites, and the flea med will prevent tapeworm, since pets get tapeworm from eating fleas.

I am doing her again with the Dolpac. She just seems to be the only one of my seven dogs that passes the worms in her stool. I did use the Dolpac as I know it gets most kinds of worms. We do not have fleas where I live but one of the dogs I got a little while ago came with Coast where they have a flea problem. I deflead her right away and have not seen any more fleas on her or on any of the other dogs.

These worms do not look like tapeworm as they are really round, not flat like tapes. As I took a fresh sample into the Vet you would think they would know what tapeworm looked like.

It is clear as a bell on the picture I posted it from, not sure what I did wrong. Will try again.
