Intestinal parasites cause serious discomfort to pets, and also pose a threat to pet owners. Many intestinal parasites are zoonotic, which means they can be transmitted from pet to human. There are several types of internal parasites including roundworms, hookworms, whipworms and tapeworms.
Tapeworms are long, flat, segmented parasites that live in the small intestines of dogs and cats. Whipworms live in the intestines of dogs and occasionally cats. Adult whipworms are shaped very thin at the front and become wider toward the rear.
