we have a neopolitan mastiff that had hookworms and the people we got her from had her treated several times for them,well now they r back and the vet said its just because we got unlucky and got a dog infested with them.How do they come back so easy? we were told its was brought on by the stress she went through having cherry eye fixed.It just don't seem right for her to be healthy one day have surgery come home almost dying..
Hookworm is an intestinal parasite that is transmitted via the Fecal- Oral route and in some cases throught the skin ( very rare). You must make sure the environment is kept clean of feces( indoors and out). Your vet will prescripe appropriate medication as well. vetcare
