Can a dog with worms pass it on to humans?
Roundworms do pose a significant risk to humans.
Contact with contaminated soil or dog feces can result in human ingestion and infection.
Roundworm eggs may accumulate in significant numbers in the soil where pets deposit feces.
Once infected, the worms can cause eye, lung, heart and neurologic signs in people.
Generally, you shouldn't start running with your puppy before six months of age; any earlier and you can risk affecting his growing joints and muscles.
Some large and giant breeds may not be ready until later.

Do you let your dog sleep in your bed with you at night? Research has shown that slightly less than one-half of all pet owners share their bed or bedroom with their pet.
Even so, you have likely been told by at least one well-meaning person that your dog should sleep on the floor, in his crate, or in his own bed.
Here are the 11 most common symptoms of worms in dogs:
- Coughing. One of the advanced stage symptoms of heartworms in a dog is coughing.
- Vomiting. Dogs that have worms will often throw up.
- Low energy.
- Pot bellied appearance.
- Change in appetite.
- Weight loss.
- Dull coat.
Go ahead and sleep with your dog—it's perfectly safe, as long as you are both healthy.
In fact, sharing your bedroom with your canine companion—as long as he isn't under the covers—may actually improve your sleep, according to recent research published by Mayo Clinic Proceedings.
Dog Breeds That Are Typically Good With Cats

- Labrador Retriever.
And while that second dog may help alleviate the first dog's symptoms, his presence doesn't fix the underlying separation-related anxiety.
If you really DO want a second dog, the first course of action is to help your existing dog overcome the separation-related anxiety before bringing in the new addition.
