So, I guess I didn't get Chino outside quick enough and he pooped on my living room floor (thank GOD for hardwoods). At any rate, this may have been a blessing because I was forced to look at his poop. His poop had rice (?!) in it which after further research I have determined to potentially be worms. I called the vet and he wants a sample. Now I am concerned because he has already been on his first visit to the vet and he did not diagnose him with fleas. I've never seen a flea but he has had one butt dragging episode, puked 1 time (undigested food), but outside of that appears to be totally happy and healthy. I am also concerned because I have a 5 year old and 2 year old whom are extremely affectionate with Chino...what to do??? I know I should bathe him in DAWN, but what is an easy way to determine whether or not he has fleas?? PLEASE HELP! Any info is greatly appreciated...

Kaci had some sort of worms (either tape or round, I don't remember) when she was 3-4 months old. I don't remember her ever having fleas, but like the others have said, I think one or two pills cleared it all up and she started gaining weight again.
