Dogs Eating Worms – Is it Safe?

We received an interesting question from a reader in Michigan about her dogs eating worms. Actually, the question isn’t really directly about eating worms, but more about the potential dangers associated with dogs digging around in the ground, finding worms, and then playing with them in their mouth, potentially ingesting them (or part of them) in the process. Her scenario is fairly specific and contains a few components, so we’ll quote her message in full, but our general focus will be on the question of whether or not it is safe for your dogs to eat worms.
