According to the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine, the bottom line for how dogs get worms is, “How a dog gets infected by worms depends on the kind of worms the dog has. There are a lot of different kinds of worms that live in dogs.” These worms are called parasites because they feed off the dog’s body. The worm does not live independently on its own. Unlike earthworms, another type of worm, they have to reproduce inside of a dog.
Usually, worms are picked up through the environment that your dog spends his time in. If he plays in contaminated areas, then the worms can be ingested and this helps them to continue living. Worm eggs can actually still be dangerous in grass or soil after more than 2 years, even after the feces has been removed. Puppies are the most susceptible when it comes to worms. If their mother is infected with them, they can be born infected with them, or even passed on through milk.

I guess I should have told him the truth — that most of us go to Hell and burn eternally — but I didn’t want to upset him.”
