    [​IMG]I found something floating in my dogs water bowl. I got it out with one of her toys and IT IS A WORM. I have attached a picture. The only other pets we have in our house is two little zebra finches. Where could this have come from?
    What type is it? It was dead when I found it and I have no clue where it would have come from.

    It is hard to tell from the picture, but it really does not look to me like a parasitic worm. It could be a maggot or any one of a number of creepy crawlers.

    Thank you for the reply!
    And yes that was what I began to think, as well. I was thinking it could have just been a maggot ot larvae from a fly or insect in our house.
