Please help,our new female basset has some black bugs they look like a worm on her nails.She hasn't been eating and very sleepy.We found 2 of the bugs on her nails and removed them with a tissue,were concerned she may have more.Does anyone know what they could be? The breeder said they gave her deworming medicine the day we picked her up and that we might see some in her stools.Any thoughts or suggestions? Thank you

No idea what they might be, but you should take your new pup to a local vet for a check up even if you did not see any issues, and especially if she is not eating.

By what your describing, I highly doubt that the worms are internal.

I would venture to say it is flea larvae or flea dirt (what alot of people think are little black worms on their dogs).

Puppies with flea problems can become lethargic and not eat well.
