Hello,
Please take your baby to his/her Veterinarian. It is probably time to start vaccinations anyway. Please take a stool sample with you so your Veterinarian can determine which worms they are and which medication to dispense to you.

With no disrespect have you considered talking to your Veterinarian?

If it looks like sesame seeds that is hookworms. That's what my 3 year old shihpoo had & he was on Trifexis which is supposed to take care of them. Trifexis paid for everything at the vet because I've had him on it since he was old enough for heart worm meds. They get into the dogs intestines and my vet said they can pick them up from dog fecies in dog parks or anywhere there is wet soil or poop that the dog can walk through.

The worms usually enter thru your dogs nose, mouth or even the pads on their feet. My vet told me even though my dog doesn't go anywhere but my backyard for me to start picking up his poop and bagging it so the soil will not be re-contaminated after we got rid of his worms.
