Default Puppy health issues

I have a 5-6 month Pitbull puppy that was over ran with worms when I got her. We have been fighting them for two or three weeks now. But there are so many issues along the way.

She will look normal for a few days then the next I thing I know she is all pot-bellied with her stomach hanging...

Then she will look fine for a few days...

I waited 10 days and dewormed her again, this time the cat had them too. I live in North Carolina and I hear worms are really hard to control around here.

But so far, from what I can guess neither of them have worms as of a few days ago.

The issue is the puppy's stomach. This is an Every Other Day thing, never fails. Its not two days in a row, or two days skipped. Its one day, skip a day, one day, skip a day....

And that is her waking up and vomitting whether she has anything to vomit up. Her whole body contracts like the urge for her to vomit is extreme. As of right now, she looks to be as though she has no worms, tight stomach, but she vomitted again this morning and has yet to get out of bed even though its noon. She wont eat on these days, rarely late in the evening. The days that she is not sick, she will eat 3 times a day.

For the most part, once she gets over her "morning sickness" she seems to be ok all through the day. She has all the energy in the world and acts happy as can be. Her eyes are bright and her tail wags all the time.

But this still concerns me... like I said, its an every-other-day thing and I can't make any sense of it.

For the most part, animal care is not foreign to me, I have breed dogs for a long time as well as horses, training both.

But this has me bewildered.

Doja how is your puppy now? Is she better and have you been back to the vets with this problem/ The trouble is you must break the life cycle of the worm if you don't you will have constant problems with worms Good luck

I would definitely take the dog to the vet. This does not sound good at all. Sounds worse than worms! You cannot have worms one day and not the next like you described. The life cycle is much longer than that. Have you been examining the stools? I would also take a fresh one to the vet for analysis.

doja how have you got on? Have you been to the vets again? Once the worms get a hold they are ruthless and while your dog may be eating ok the worms growing etc because they are living off the food you give your dog. You must take more samples to vet and get your dog treated proffesionaly. Let us know how you get on! Good luck. ATB
