While my dog was being boarded the boarder said he had a tapeworm. There is a vet associated with the boarder and he was given tapeworm meds. It's been a week and a half since he was given his meds for the tapeworm but I am seeing rice like things in his stool and things that look more like half of soybeans. I have read it take weeks for the tapeworm to start to be seen in the stool but it doesn't seem like it could be long enough since he was give the tapeworm meds for a new one to have grown. My dog also doesn't have fleas which makes me even more worried about how he got it in the first place.
