    There are a lot of signs of worm infestation. They could have one or more of these: pale head (comb), droopiness, weight loss, slow growth, emaciation (bony body), diarrhea, weakness, inactivity, poor appetite, gasping, coughing, yawning, head shaking. There are a lot of threads about how to worm and the different types of wormers if you need them.
