Some of those details become everyday occurrences, such as picking up after your dog does their business, but others will always make pup parents squirm in their seats. Unfortunately, worms fall into that category.

Even though many dogs and owners will have to deal with a case of ringworm, roundworm, or even heartworm at some point in their lives, it's understandable why the thought of worms gives people the heebie-jeebies.
