Are you sure they are roundworms? DId the vet tell you that? If you can see the worms in the poop or around the dogs rectal area and look like grains of rice they are tapeworms. But regardless stay away from the poop. Don't clean it up at all. Have someone else do it. If the dog (i know it is gross but) likes to eat poop then don't let the dog lick you.
