Can hookworms be passed from dog to dog?

Can a dog be born with hookworms?

Your dog may be infected with roundworms from the time it is born because often the mother passes the worms to the puppy while it is still in her body. Roundworms can also develop in a puppy after it is born when the puppy eats larvated eggs from the environment or drinks worm larvae (young worms) in the mother's milk.

How long does it take to get rid of hookworms in puppies?

Recovery of Hookworms in Dogs If caught early, it usually takes around 3-5 days for symptoms to resolve following medication, and a few weeks to completely eliminate the worms.
