Def not what Grendel has. Hers appear to be tapeworm. Just disgustingly large ones.

Have you tried the nukem-till-they-glow, aka fenbendazole? (For horses this was the Panacur Power Pack multi-day deworming. I had a horse come into my barn that just wasn't putting on weight and I finally hit him with the Power Pack and the things that started appearing on day 3 in his manure - eeww. Bots are something we deworm horses for and the dewormer very effective.)

The 3 day protocol on the fenbendazole may just knock out unwanted residents in your dog.

Hopefully you won't!! It's the most disgusting thing to know that fly maggots are hatching inside him or just hitching a ride through him - either way it's beyond gross to know they are inside my beautiful boy!!! The numbers have significantly decreased - haven't been able to inspect too closely the last few days because of the weather.

Thank you for posting this. I have not seen this yet in Lola's poop.

Wow. Always something interesting with the dogs. I hope you are able to get this figured out.

Well, as you mentioned, cold weather will soon be with us, and the flies will be gone. I've noticed more around here this year. Hopefully, the Parasitology Dept. can do research and come up with a solution. Other dog owners probably have this problem, too, but aren't as vigilant as you are. By the way, I think that poop Doc made looks perfect! :)

Nancy - it is weird indeed which is why the vet misdiagnosed it as tapeworms - no one could believe that he was passing live larvae - it's so gross to think about! There's nothing to spray the yard with believe me I've tried - I follow behind Doc when I can tell he's going to poop and I immediately scoop to help control fly population. They are there the second he poops but not on my Roxy's poop - I guess because Doc's poop smells more than Roxy - not sure. I have been perplexed by the non-moving white seed looking things but after researching and talking to the vet and Parasitology dept I think they are fly eggs.

Wow, Madelon, that is weird! It looks as if that fly was waiting for Doc to finish, but the eggs are a mystery. My neighbor has a guy come around every so often to spray her yard to get rid of fleas and ticks. Of course, her dog has to stay in the house afterwards for a while. Is there such a thing for those flies? House flies are always lurking right by my door, so no matter what I try, one will manage to get in. Luckily, rabbits aren't around our yard.

For curious minds - here is a video of Doc's "mystery worms" that turned out to be live fly larvae being passed through him - this video was taken about 1 minute after he pooped. After the "worms" were sent to a lab they confirmed they are live fly larvae hitching a ride through Doc from Botfly and plant flies.
