Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.


Are you using the YUMPRO BioActiv PLUS or the regular one?

What does their stool look like?

Is he still refusing food despite being on the Ranitidine?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes the plus. The stool are very runny and now have dead long worms in it. He eats a little but no where near as much as he was.

Thank you Shelia,

If they had worms and were treated, then it isn't a surprise to see them passed. Still, how long ago were they treated? How long after treatment are you still seeing dead worms?

Any blood or mucus in the diarrhea?
