Other Information: Large roundworms are the greatest threat to your dog during puppyhood and can kill dogs by robbing them of the vital nourishment needed to live and grow. Many puppies are born with large roundworms which are passed from the mother to the puppies.

Large roundworms are common so it is important to watch for these symptoms in your dog:

• Vomiting and diarrhea

• Bloating (pot belly)

• Dull and lackluster coat

• Dull and lackluster general appearance
