How Do Dogs & Cats Get Worms?

Dogs and cats can acquire worms in a number of ways:

  • Accidentally eating eggs found in the soil or on vegetation through everyday behavior (sniffing/licking the ground, eating dirt, grass, etc.)
  • Eating rodents or insects that are carrying worms
  • Close skin contact with infective larvae found in soil or sand
  • From their mothers, either before they are born or via milk when nursing
