    I know that bringing a new pup home can bring on the runs, but Brody was fine on the day 1, and most of day 2 then I gave him a wormer (Drontal) as was told by the breeder (hi Chloe :)) that he was due and he has had really soft poos since.

    In fact a couple have been very squity - liquid with what may be a worm - at least it looks like a worm shaped poo in the middle (sorry for the graphic description).

    In some of his poos, there are what looks like bits of rice - again I know this could be worms but on the basis that a couple of times he has managed to get a bit of Daisy's food (nature diet) before I can get him away and that has rice in it, it may actually be rice.

    I don't really know what I'm looking for to be honest, so a bit confused :confused:

    Does this all sound normal or should I be worried? What time period does it take for all the worms to get out following the treatment?

    On the basis that I think I saw worms should I give him more wormer sooner than the 1 month that the vet said, just to make sure they are all gone?

    He is absolutely fine in himself - eating normally (in fact he is a right piglet :)) and drinking lots and I'm learning to be very quick with Daisy's food and keeping him away from it!:rolleyes:

    It does sound like worm segments. Worming quite often upsets their tums but if it goes on for a few days, go and see your vet
