Types of Worm Infection You Should Know About
Pet owners usually know that their cats and dogs should be regularly tested for worm infection by worms and regularly given worm medication for prevention. But in this economic crisis, it is easy for people to get complacent and decide to spend their money on something more important than worms.

What people sometimes do not understand is that worms carried by their pets pose a health risk not only to them but also to other animals and their owners. This article summarizes the different kinds of worms that your pet is at risk from and the harm they may cause. By the time you finish reading it, you will understand why money spent on a vet for worm prevention is money well spent.

One of the Worms that can be found in your pet and in humans is roundworms. Born carriers of roundworm are usually puppies but not necessarily kittens. Roundworms are transmitted through their microscopic eggs found in the faeces of an infected animal. The worms can survive for 3 years even if the faeces have long gone. If a human got roundworm eggs on their hand and eat with their hands without washing them, they may swallow the eggs and get infected.

There are three kinds of tapeworms: Echinococcus, Taenia and Dipylidium. The Echinococcus is usually found in dogs and cats in the UK and Europe. These types of worms cause cysts which may lead to liver failure or others.

Cats, dogs and very occasionally man can get infected by hookworms. The eggs is shed into the environment and allowed to burrow into the skin through the feet.

Heartworms are not found in the UK but it is widely found in all States in America. If your pet has light infection of heartoworm, your cats and dogs will most likely not show any symptoms at all. However, heavy infection can cause anaemia and even death.

Now that you know the different kinds of worm infection and also the health risk it takes to your family as well, will hopefully make you realise that spending money on worm prevention is a wise thing to do.
