Question:

: Recently I adopted a JRT, but found that a pot belly is a symtom of worm. I wondered if its too late to start worming. Its stool is strong smelling compare to my previous JRT which died in a car accident. Could this be normal too? I need help here, can't afford to lose another dog now.


Response:

A "pot belly" can also be a symptom of other medical problems so I do not recommend that you try to worm your terrier until you know exactly what is causing the condition. Please take your terrier -- and a stool sample -- to the vet in the next couple of days.

Good luck,
Leslie
