roundworms?

Last night our 8 week old great Dane puppy threw up roundworms. We picked her up from the breeder last weekend and she seemed perfectly healthy and still seems ok, he said he wormed her and he gave us a tablet to give her in about a week, the worms she threw up where live, does anyone know if my 5 year old son is at risk he has been playing with the dog and i read that roundworms are contagious??

Definately and so is everyone else. My nephew and his GF both caught them from their cats and had circles on their arms from them.
Not sure what they did to get ride of them.

You're thinking of Ringworm. Ringworm is actually a fungus and is contagious. Roundworms are an intestinal parasite. I'd still disinfect any surface they are in contact with if for no other reason to keep from re-infecting the puppy. Check with your Vet about worming the pup. If he's throwing up worms he's got a big load of them.

She only threw up once and we gave her the wormer about 1 hr after she threw up. And 3 hrs before she threw up we had spagetti with garlic and oil
