I just got a dog Friday. She was taken to the vet on Monday and did not have worms. She was given Trifexis. This morning I saw a live worm in her stool. I did not see any worms yesterday. Do I need to take her to the vet?

HI Leslie,
Trifexis is a heartworm preventative, but also treats for fleas (it kills them) as well as  hook and roundworms and whip worms too. On some occasions you can see internal parasites come out in your dogs stool after being treated for internal parasites. I’d talk with your vet and ask about it. Taking in a sample of stool would be a good idea also. It’s not an emergency, so you can just call your vet the next business day that they are open.
Congrats on your new dog!
