What is Hookworm

Hookworm is a parasitic worm which inhabits the intestines of dogs and cats. It has hook-like mouth parts with which it attaches itself to the wall of the gut, puncturing blood vessels and feeding on the blood.

Symptoms of a Hookworm Infestation

 

  • Diarrhoea
  • Bloody Diarrhoea
  • Weight Loss
  • Anaemia

 

What is Tapeworm

Tapeworm is a parasitic flatworm, the adult of which lives in the intestines. It has a long ribbon-like body with many segments that can become independent, and a small head bearing hooks and suckers. Dogs and cats usually get Tapeworms by swallowing a Tapeworm infected flea.

Symptoms of a Tapeworm Infestation

 

  • Dried, white, grain-like segments visible in faeces
  • Biting, licking or dragging of hind quarters/bottom

 

What is Roundworm

Roundworm is a round-bodied, unsegmented worm that hatches and live in the intestines. The eggs of the roundworm usually enter the body through contaminated water or food.

Symptoms of a Roundworm Infestation

 

  • Swollen belly
  • Weakness
  • Dull coat
  • Vomiting

 

What is Whipworm

Whipworm looks like a whip with wider ‘handles’ at the end. They live in the caecum and large intestine of dogs and cats where they cause severe irritation to the lining of those organs. It is generally transmitted by ingesting contaminated food, water or faeces.

Symptoms of Whipworm

 

  • Bloody Diarrhoea
  • Faecal incontinence
  • Weight loss
  • Malnutrition

 

What is Giardia

Giardia is a single-celled parasite that lives in the small intestine of your dog or cat. Before pooing, they become encased within hard shells called cysts, which allows them to survive outside the intestines for months. Once inside your dog or cat, the cysts dissolve and the parasites are released.

Symptoms of Giardia

 

  • Dehydration
  • Upset stomach or nausea
  • Abdominal discomfort
  • Flatulence
