Hello. I had a question for which I asked my vet and they referred me to you. 🙂 I have a 10 mo lab pup. I found this “worm” on the floor where she sits. She is acting fine-no other symptoms. Is this problem or a baby centipede? Thx. –Will

I can’t tell for sure from the photo whether there are legs or not but there does seem to be a head with tentacles? So to me this is something living outside the body.

It seems this would be “soil centipede”
