Q. Small rice like worms have suddenly showed up in our dog's stool. We want to get rid of them quickly and money is always an issue.

A. The best and cheapest way is by getting a good quality worm treatment from your veterinarian. Although it possibly may be a bit more expensive it is more effective than over the counter ones so will save you money in the long run rather than trying several cheaper options first before then having to buy the vet one.
