OMG We have never dealt with worms before in ALL of our dogs. I had ordered deworming stuff online for Whiskey that won't arrive until next week but then this morning I woke up to just . . . . ugh . . . if your dog has passed worms before, then you know exactly what I saw!!!!

I'm running to Petsmart later today when I can get a ride to get some deworming stuff immediately. But other than giving her the medicine, I don't know what else needs to be done. We don't have a yard, (apartment) so I can't really/don't need to do stuff to the grass but what about her bed, my carpets, does she need a bath too?

Anything with the rest of the furniture? Are they able to pass to humans? I'm totally freaked out here!

Humans can get these worms but I think it is fairly rare. Your dog gets them by ingesting fleas that are infected, so if you accidently ingest a flea there is a small chance you could end up with them. That being said an obvious step that you need to take to get rid of this problem and prevent it happening again in the future is to keep your dog on a good flea control program.
