Serious or not?

Since last sunday, cant sleep well. Because Shiro 's problem. Yesterday, found his poo got blood..!!!Faint....did some research and it might be the injurded recturm or he never dewormed since puppy. My feeling just like the feeling when I was waiting for my STPM result...nervous, scare,....stressed up...Hopefully he will be alright.

Did some research on it, found out that Shiro might infected by hookworm.

Hookworms are one of the most common intestinal parasites of dogs and (especially puppies and kittens). They get their name from the small hook-like instrument on their head that they use to dig into the wall of a dog’s intestinal tract. The larvae burrow into the skin and cause the dog a great deal of itching and discomfort. They suck blood from the walls of the intestines and have been known to cause serious anemic problems in young dogs. Hookworms can be transferred to dogs through a couple of methods. The main causes of hookworms for dogs are through the mother’s milk when nursing, through the top layer of their skin, through the mouth and even through the placenta before the puppy was born.

This is what we as a pet owner...need to aware that we need to de worm our pet every few months. Really hope that Shiro only infected by worm, if not...I wanna die!!!!
