I just discovered that my dog has tapeworm. Does anyone know if he can give it to my chickens, ducks and goats and should I worm them as a precaution.

Thanks

tapeworm is spread from dog to dog through fleas. Worm your dog and be sure to pick up any poop immediately after he goes.
It could definitely be passed to the goats

Tapeworms must go through an intermediary host to become infective. The two most common types of dog tapeworms must pass through a cycle in a flea (one type) or a rodent (the other). Most tapeworms are species specific and the worm can only mature in it's specific host animal.
