Ok guys I am getting ready to freak out and take carter to the vet now for the 4th time in 2 weeks.

I took him last sat. and they gave him a shot becuase the lady said that he has a large amount of round and hook worms. None hav ecome out in his poop and today his stomache is HUGE. Is he going to die if this keeps up? Im scared they are going to kill him. Can he die from these damn worms? Why the hell arent they coming out!?!?!?!? i cant take this anymore. I cant stand see this puppy sick the way he is. I'm really worried about him. I dunno how much more of this bull shit I can take.
that F*ckin breeder needs to rot in hell. :evil:

What am I suppose to do. I went out and bought more worming tablets to do myself... but i am holding off. I dont wanna make it worse.

Anyone know if its suppose to still get bigger (his belly) did u ever have this experience?!?!

First off, yes a dog can die from worm infestation but it's usually due to starvation & dehydration as the intestinal worms & parasites rob his body from absorbing any nutritional content. Second, it's very possible your dog is reinfesting himself if you are not super duper vigilant in picking up every single stool at the time it is "deposited". If your not doing this regularly & this pup is playing in the yard, he can reinfest himself just by licking his paws after romping in the yard as it's fecal to oral transmission. And depending on the load, it can take up to 2 weeks to completely rid a dog's system of intestinal worms and/or parasites.
