Help- dog threw up long worm

So, I am in Chicago on a weekend trip right now and husband has been staying home in Michigan. He called me this morning and said one of our two dogs threw up this morning and when he inspected it, there was a long ramen noodle looking thing. And he said it seemed to wiggle a bit. He did not mention seeing any other worms.

He does not know which dog it was. Ally is 6 and Starla is 6 months. I can take both dogs to vet when I get home today if they are open. What do I watch out for in my house to protect us? I also have a 4 yr old daughter?

Is this easily fixed with a trip to the vet and some meds. I feel bad that I'm not home. And husband is at work. I am not able to monitor. But Starla is in crate during day.
I would appreciate any advice I'm writing on my iPhone. Sorry for any mistakes.

Maggie did that as a youngster too. Hers were roundworms and easily treated with her hw med. They are very common, at least in youngsters. I'd call your vet and let them know and ask how they want to treat.

As to ways to protect you and your daughter...good hand washing techniques and not allowing dog-human face kisses are about all that is needed.
Children are most at risk becuase they tend to play with tails and they dont wash their hands/under finger nails well enough or often enough. They also tend to let dogs lick their faces/mouths and we all know that dogs use their mouths to keep themselves clean.
If you google 'canine zoonotic disease' or 'canine zoonotic transmission'...you can find much more detailed info.

It is common and is easily treated...IMHO no need to panic...it's gross, and needs to be dealt with as soon as possible, but not an emergency.

Good News! You'll rest more easily when the creepy-crawlies are being treated! ;-)

What are you using for heartworm prevention? Heartguard Plus and Interceptor both work to help prevent worms such as roundworms and hookworms. Interceptor also helps against whipworms.

I had Starla on Heartguard, but was due for a refill ; / I was told that Sentinel is good for both the fleas and heartworm.

So here is an update.. I have Starla's appt set for this morning. She has been acting fine, no puke, energy is normal. Eating her cup of food that I give her in the morning (but leaving just a little in the bowl, then she went back again and ate it). I thought worms make them more hungry?

I just looked at her stool and it was normal. I didn't see anything strange besides some hairs in it.

We saved her original puke, and it does look like a dried up cream colored worm, maybe 2 inches in length, but there are no other symptoms. Maybe it's a string...

Her poop was fine. Would there definitely be worms in her stool if she had worms?
