What Are Tapeworms?
Tapeworms can conjure up images of a ghastly infestation. There are several types of Tapeworms that reside in the intestines of your dog or cat. They consist of a head and a long flat body made up of segments. This body can be several feet long, if not more. Segments, each having the ability to reproduce, are passed in the animal's feces, leaving the head still attached to the animal's intestinal lining, where it produces new segments. One of the worst case scenarios is that if left untreated, it may become so long that it obstructs the intestines.
How Does My Pet Get Tapeworms?
Fleas love to eat tapeworm eggs. A larva grows inside of the flea. When your cat or dog eats an infected flea, the larva matures into an adult tapeworm, attaching itself to the animal’s intestines where it will continue to grow and thrive.
Does My Pet Have Tapeworms?
If you see 1/4 inch, whitish worms that may expand and contract in your pet's stool, or cucumber seed-like or rice grain-like dried segments in your pet's bedding area or clinging to the hair around their anus, then your pet is probably infected with tapeworms. Tapeworm infection may not cause any noticeable illness in your pet, but it also may show moderate signs of infection. These symptoms may produce digestive upsets, excessive or decreased appetite (depending on the pet), poor hair and skin coat (possible balding, red areas especially on the rump and feet), weight loss and vague signs of abdominal discomfort.
However disgusting it may be to find one of these segments, this is the best form of diagnosis there is.This is because the eggs may not be found upon microscopic examination of the feces by your veterinarian. The worm carries the eggs inside the segments and are not laid in the stool as are other worms' eggs, which is how most intestinal worms are diagnosed.
