Hi all my name is Yasmine, and I am now the proud owner of a 10 week old Puggat.

An elderly mans dog accidentally mated and he couldn't keep them all. He generously gave me one of the pups for my son!

I didn't know until we got home, (I knew he didn't have shots yet, and I was prepared to take him Tues) that he had never been dewormed or that it was even necessary.

Panic! I have two young kids age 9 and 7, and while they know to wash their hands after playing with him I still became very worried.

Our car broke down, and I didn't want to wait another 5 days for deworming. I bought puppy dewormer OTC, and gave him some. Also gave my 5 year old beage as prevenative. (I adopted him a year and half ago, his owner passed).

My questions is does my pup need to be confined till we see the vet? I mean from y kids. I know he shouldn't go outside and interact with strange dogs. My beagle is a few months behind on parvo, but that's it. So I was told not to worry about him, interacting with pup.

I'm more concerned about the worms and my kids.

I've been washing my hands so much they're peeling! Clearly I have some anxiety here. Looking for any advice.

*he has pooped 2x since meds and I didn't see rice looking worms. Some white flecks but everyones poop has stuff in it.

Thanks in advance. And please no bashing me for taking a pup from a non breeder.
