The mother of this 4 day old newborn puppy died and I am taking care of it. I noticed it is pooping diarrhea and blood. It is also pooping many small, tiny, white worms that move, kinda like grains of rice. I did some research and found that it could be tapeworms. How do you cure it?
I can’t afford a vet. Should I just take it to the animal shelter? I live in Texas in the Dallas metroplex area.

You take it to the vet to be properly diagnosed and they will prescribe the appropriate treatment.
Or if you are not willing to properly care for the puppy, give it to someone who will.
