Only if your dog has worms. Yes, humans can contract worms from animals and vice versa...but only if the animal is infected. Typically dogs are not 100% inside, so if your dogs go outside at all, then it is possible for them to contract worms (although less likely if you use a heartworm preventative medication as most of them protect against multiple types of worm infestation). If you have any doubt, you can take a fecal sample into your vet and have it run usually for around $15-$20 and they can let you know if the sample comes back positive. I will say though, I've owned dogs for 10 years now and I've never had one contract worms.

Do you suspect your dog has worms?
