Re: Dogs eating snails


Snails can carry a parasitic worm which can affect dogs so either stop them from doing it or worm regularly with a varitey of wormers.

Re: Dogs eating snails


Thanks Becky, but that sounds like it wouldn't be an "instant" effect on the dog then?? I'm barking up the wrong tree I think, it was just a thought. I'm going to look up on the snails thing though just in case. Thanks again Becky and Mo

Re: Dogs eating snails


I was led to believe that it was heart worm that dogs can get from eating snails!

Re: Dogs eating snails


It's lung worm that dogs get from eating slugs and snails. Both panacur and Milbemax kill lung worm.

Re: Dogs eating snails


As I mention on the other thread it could be soething the snail had eaten before it was eaten causing the trouble. Do you know if any of your neighbours put out poison for the slugs & snails?

Re: Dogs eating snails


Thanks all. Well I really don't know whether anyone has put out poison for them, suppose I'd better ask them! Mind you, I think if it had been poisoned, I think Georgie would have been iller than he was and his blood test would have shown it perhaps? They can't be poisonous in themselves though coz the French eat them don't they!!! I still think it's worth a mention to the vet just in case

Re: Dogs eating snails


Flower was always eating snail when I first got her, and when she does she gets the runs....But I have also heard it can give them a higher chance of getting worms? xxx
