Dog Whipworms (Trichuris) | Top 10 Rated Treatments | RightPet

Whipworms (Trichuris vulpis and Trichuris campanula) are parasitic worms that are transmitted when an animal ingests food or water contaminated with whipworm eggs. Many dogs with a whipworm infection don't show symptoms, but a severe infection can cause diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and anemia.

Whipworms tend to affect older dogs more often than puppies. Whipworms are 2 - 3 inches long, but are very thin and difficult to see in feces.
