Does feeding your dog bread give them worms?

Answers:
dogs can get worms from mosquitoes, ticks, dirt, feces, but not bread... unless that is, the bread has worms or worm larvae in it. bread, biscuits, chocolate and milk are actually fine for dogs. yes thats right, i said chocolate is fine... it is, in small quantities. milk is fine to give to your pets but don't give too much or too often because it can cause mild diarrhea. bread & biscuits are ok too. and if you ever had to give your dog a pill, a great way to hide it is in a piece of bread.
but the best treat for your dog - is actually a dog treat. if you think about where dogs originate... the fact that your dog has a roof over his head and a full belly all day, should seem like he's spoiled. dogs absolutely love milk bones!!! for my dog is snauages... what i'm saying is, if you want to spoil your little baby even more, give him (or her) something that was made for his digestive tract.
Nope. Either does candy.
no. dogs pick up worms from lickin each others butts, eating raw meat and from gardeninng soil but not bread unless it is dropped in thier ****
Bread is not good for dogs. I know it is tempting to give them some of our human food, but I saw a program saying bread, biscuits, chocolate and human milk are like poison to dogs and cats. I have since been more careful with what I give to mine.
Nope, but letting them sniff strange dogs poop does.
UNBELIVABLE! SOME DOG OWNERS SEEM TO BE REALLY DUMB TODAY AND YOU OTHERS "DOG GONE" FUNNY! REAL QUESTION...HOW YA GET STUPID HUMANS TO STOP GIVEN EM RAW SCRAPS AND NOW THAT BUDDYS GOT EM HOW YA GET RID OF EM, FAST & CHEAP? THE HALF INCH-ER ONES? HEARD ABOUT TOBACCO??
The most common worms in nearly all dogs are roundworms, whipworms, and hookworms. Heartworms and tapeworms are the result of mosquito bites and actually seen to a lesser degree than the others. Dogs get worms first from their mom's milk--if she has worms. Later, they also get worms from dirt, grass, contact with dead birds, mice, chipmunks, squirrels, rabbits and other wild animals. Worm eggs as well as adult worms are found in dirt and grass--so dogs easily get them.

Any food or animal that has live worms or worm eggs that is eaten by a dog will cause a dog to eventually get worms.
No. feeding your dog bread doesn't give them worms.

It may give him diarrhea however. Dogs have funny stomachs. While they can eat the most outlandish things, they do best on the same brand/type of food at the same time every day, twice a day.

They pick them up from sniffing things, like other dogs who may be carrying worms, or the ground as they prepare to leave urine messages, or by licking their paws after their walk. or by eating carrion or garbage that may be infested. There are lots of ways dogs get worms.

Ways to lessen this include good sanitation. Make sure you do poopie-patrol every single day. Take Poochie to play areas that are cleaned regularly.

Sadly however, worms and dogs have gone together for centuries. The best thing you can do besides proper sanitation practices as listed above is to have Poochie checked twice a year by your vet. You bring a fresh fecal sample to the office and they analyze it for worms and prescribe a course of treatments.
