Thanks for the support, everyone. I still feel like an awful mommy bc I don't know how long this has been going on. I mean, if I let her potty outside and I don't SEE anything, how will I ever know if this happens again?? Luckily, I know to look for the little "seeds" on her bottom next time, but even so...if I don't see those, she'll be living with tapeworms and I won't even know. It's scary!!!
Honestly, I thank God that it was raining last night and I didn't want to take her outside to go bc if she hadn't gone on her pad and I have to pick it up, I never would have seen it.

So, I gave Gucci half her pill last night. Luckily she didn't have any problems and didn't get sick.
I went to clean everything out and can NOT believe I didn't notice all the dried up seed-like segments everywhere. I took her pad and blanket out of the crate and there were about 50 of them. How could I NOT notice it??? I vacuumed the floors, mopped, washed all her beds and bedding, etc. but I STILL feel like it's not enough. I know they get tapeworms from fleas, but I didn't see anything on her, so I don't know if the house has them or what. SO STRESSFUL!

Flea poop looks like little specks of pepper. If she plays outside, it would be easy to mistake it for dirt. And with their furry butts, it would be hard to see the segments. Don't beat yourself up, if this is all that ever happens, it's minor!
