Gut Intestinal Worms:

Dog & Cat Roundworm

Roundworms are canine common internal parasites in dogs. Resembling spaghetti, adult worms are three to four inches long. There are several ways dogs can become infected.


Dog & Cat Hookworm

Hookworms are much smaller than roundworms—less than an inch long—and reside primarily in the small intestine. Because they feed on an animal’s blood, hookworms can cause life-threatening aenemia. Hookworm eggs are passed in the stool and hatch into larvae, and dogs can become infected either through ingestion or skin contact. Please note, hookworms are more common in dogs than cats.


Dog & Cat Tapeworm

Long and flat, tapeworms are segmented parasites and range from 4 to 28 inches in length. An infestation can cause vomiting or weight loss. Dogs acquire tapeworms by ingesting an intermediate host, like an infected flea or rodent. When dogs are infected, tapeworm segments—actual pieces of the worm that resemble grains of rice—can often be seen on the fur around a dogs hind end.


Dog & Cat Lungworms

Unlike intestinal parasites, lungworms reside in the lungs of a dog. Most dogs will not show any signs of having lungworms, but some can develop a cough. Snails and slugs are popular intermediate hosts of this type of parasite, but dogs are usually infected after eating a bird or rodent who has ingested an intermediate host.or drinking from streams or puddles.


Our Lungworm faecal sample test is done using a technique called Baermann flotation , which may show larvae of both Angiostrongylus and Crenosoma but bear in mind that larvae may only be present intermittently in the faeces and dogs may show clinical signs such as coughing prior to the larvae being present in the faeces.

The faecal sample is suspended in a solution for 24 hours, Then analysed, Lungworm Faecal tests are not 100% , if you know of Lungworm cases in your area a veterinary blood test is advisable.
