Early diagnosis for the presence and kind of intestinal parasite is vital. To do this the stool is mixed with a special solution, which makes the microscopic eggs more detectable. Many veterinarians comprise the stool check as part of the annual health examination. (Note: Tapeworm eggs do NOT show up well in routine faecal analyses! Tell your veterinarian if you plug these rice-like segments in the stool or wedged in the fur under the tail.) We at Ambassador Animal Hospital provide you complete information regarding the intestinal parasites. The two commonly seen parasites are:
The tapeworm is transmitted to dogs (and cats) that ingest fleas — as deceptively fleas think tapeworm eggs are real tasty — or hunt and eat wildlife or rodents verminous with tapeworms or fleas. If you were to see a complete tapeworm you would notice that they are organised with a small head at one end and many tiny brick-like recapping segments making up the rest of the worm. Many cases are diagnosed merely by seeing these tiny terminal segments attached to the pet’s fur around the anus or under the tail; they can even move a bit in a minute after they are passed and before they dry up and look like diminutive grains of rice or confetti. It also these segments of the tapeworm which contain the eggs.
Tapeworms cannot be slaughtered by the typical generic, over-the-counter wormers. So don’t exceed your time and money on non-prescription medication, see Windsor veterinarians for a treatment that really works.
An enormous percentage of puppies (and kittens) are born with microscopically trifling roundworm, or ascarid, larvae in their tissues. The larvae are presented to the evolving pup (or kitten) right in the mother’s uterus — via relocation through the mother’s tissues! Roundworms don’t just touch young pups (or kittens), though. They can infest adult dogs and cats, too. However, the larvae can encyst in body tissue of adult dogs and cats, endure quiescent for periods of time, and can trigger during the last stages of pregnancy to infest the puppies and kittens.
Worming the mother has no consequence on the encysted larvae in the body tissues and cannot avert the worms from tainting the newborn. Almost all wormers work only on the adult parasites in the duodenal tract.
