My tiny chihuahua puppy passed something strange so I took it to my vet and she diagnosed it as tapeworm but what my puppy passed didn't resemble these pictures AT ALL.
For one thing, there were no "segments". For another, it was sort of stringy like the fat part of a really thin piece of raw bacon..not "worm like" at all.
The vet wants to treat her when she gets to 2 lbs but I'm not convinced she has tapeworms.
Wondering if it will harm her to treat her if she doesn't have tapeworms.
