Aww poor Gio and poor you! Hookworms are readily treated though. I hope you figure things out with the vet.

Hookworms and poor communication..... hmm, I might also consider looking for a vet that makes sure for important things they persist until they contact you. My vet does both phone call and email.

Oh dear, hopefully your little one went potty pretty much in the same place or they could be spread all over. Sending good luck wishes in getting this resolved quickly.

Does anyone know if they can spread to humans?

I switched vets, I was just too upset about the situation as well as a few other things, so hopefully we will have a better experience going forward. It has been freezing here and the larvae are killed in freezing temps so that's lucky regarding the poop remnants in our yard. Gio is taking medicine for 3 days to kill any adult worms. Yuck! Also, yes humans can get hookworms- it is usually through soil or sand that has the worms and people walking barefoot I believe. Not a pleasant situation. We have to wipe his paws and his little butt everytime he comes in from outside.

Also Gio has been carrying on loudly and for very long periods of time at night, which we are "ignoring" (once he has eliminated of course). He only stays quiet for about 4 hours at most, at a time. It just seems outside the realm of normal and I'm going to work on re-acclimating him to his crate. Still tired over here.

Yes freezing weather will take care of the juveniles in the poo and soil. But yes people can get hookworms too, barefoot on contaminated soil not advisable when soil is contaminated. It sounds like you will have things all for the good pretty quickly.

Do you know for sure what kind of hookworms they are?

I just found this:
"Freezing temperatures will kill Ancylostoma species eggs but Uncinaria species eggs are hardier and can survive in lower temperatures. Hookworm larvae cannot persist in the environment long term like other intestinal parasites can. Under ideal conditions they can survive in the soil for a few months."

kontiki, I believe Ancylostoma are much more likely.

More likely, yes, but since the others are much more resistant to treatment, if it were my dog I would want to know they had been tested for sure

Of course! I didn't mean to imply otherwise.
