lungworms are really bad, all your babies should be checked for them.

i know im not a vet and i dont know much but i always thought lung worm was rare as well and that info you gave me says that certain things need to be done to discover if it is them well all he done was feel her belly then say lungworm if she just had normal worms but a lot of them could that make her this ill

the more i look the more i find that there is coughing with lungworm and that it is rare and it can also get confused with another worm (am drawing a blank to witch one...)

i would get a second opionion since he based his diagnosis on feeling her belly :?: and if it was another kind of worm infestation yes severe enough it could make her that ill.

You need to have them ALL wormed again. If they live and play together then they need to either be tested or wormed again :? If she was that badly infested with worms, did you not notice it in her stool?

no and i always check i no that sounds real sad but its better to be safe but my breeder said they had been regulary wormed i noticed her poo smelled real strong but apart from that there was no signs of worms thats what i find so strange as i can normally tell either the pop belly or notice it in there poo
