The white worms in your dog's poop are Tapeworms.

When your dog has white worms in their poop it means they have a tapeworm infection which is usually diagnosed by looking for and finding segments that appear as small white worms and can look like grains of rice or seeds on the rear end of your dog or in your dog's poop.

When your dog has tapeworms or other worms you should give them Deworming medications.

Dewormer medications for dogs that may be prescribed can include fenbendazole, milbemycin, praziquantel, moxidectin or pyrantel pamoate, and they come in many forms, including liquid medication, injections, tablets, topical forms or chew forms.

Dewormer medications require only one or a few doses, making them safe, effective, inexpensive and easy.

Tapeworm treatment for dogs requires the administration of a deworming product which contains the active ingredient praziquantel, such as ParaGard Allwormer for Dogs.

Dogs at risk of hydatid tapeworm (those with access to raw offal or carcasses) should be treated with ParaGard Allwormer for Dogs every 6 weeks.

Cestoda is a class of parasitic worms in the flatworm phylum.

Most of the species—and the best-known—are those in the subclass Eucestoda; they are ribbon-like worms as adults, known as tapeworms.

A tapeworm body consists of multiple parts, or segments, each with its own reproductive organs.

Tapeworm infections are usually diagnosed by finding segments which appear as small white worms that may look like grains of rice or seeds on the rear end of your dog, in your dog's feces, or where your dog lives and sleeps.
