For the past few days, Kenya's poop has been really runny. Well last night, my girlfriend noticed a white worm that looks like a grain of rice in her feces. We read online and it is most likely tape worm.
We're taking a fecal sample in today to the vet. But for the past 2 nights, I had to take her out twice a night to eliminate, and both times, there was a lot of runny poop. Anyone else ever have this issue?

We dealt with worms when we got Floppy. He had LOTS of runny bowel movements, would try to have a movement for LONG periods of time (just squat-walking around the yard) and he would drag his butt across the carpet a lot. It was hook worms in our case though. He was on medication for almost two months, as he had a LOT of them, and the vet wanted to be sure he got all of them, and their eggs, out of his system. The good thing was, that after he was on medication, he seemed better in a few days.
So take Kenya in, get her on meds, and I am sure within a short period of time she will seem much better.

As soon as you get the test results back they'll know the type of worm she's got. Then it's a matter of taking the correct medication. Afterwards you should see the worms disappear in 2-3 days.

Awww....poor Kenya....hope she's better soon!
We only had to deal with roundworms with Rocky when he first came...pretty freaky seeing a spaghetti type thing come out of his behind! But, after the first treatment he was much better.
