Dog intestinal worms important parasites?
There is a special attention over the real threat of the canine intestinal worm known as Toxocara canis, over human health. Frequently, puppies are born infected with these parasites that have affected the mother before delivery.These intestinal worms may cause diarrhea, vomits and a paunchy shape. The repeated treatment during pregnancy, and after delivery, will eliminate the danger for human health. In fact, the Toxocara canis eggs, when present in excrement, are not immediately infectious, they must remain out of the body for some time before the larva state starts to develop. However, if accidentally ingested by a kid, for example, eggs will break in the intestine, and larvae will be expanded throughout the body; this process is called "visceral larva migrations". If larvae develop in the eye, may cause blindness. They can also invade the brain with terrible consequences.
