Tapeworms

Image of a tape worm.

Tapeworms live in the digestive tracts of vertebrates as adults and often in the bodies of various animals as juveniles. In a tapeworm infection, adults absorb food predigested by the host, so the worms have no need for a digestive tract or a mouth. Large tapeworms are made almost entirely of reproductive structures with a small "head" for attachment. Symptoms vary widely, depending on the species causing the infection. The largest tapeworms can be 20 m or longer. Tapeworm awareness is importance to humans because they infect people and livestock. Two important tapeworms are the pork tapeworm and the beef tapeworm

  • "Amazing place. I found my pup on the street and took her in. First visit she showed a slight positive for heart worm. Instead of making my poor dog go through that treatment and possibly having a bad reaction, doc advised me to hold off (also saving me a lot of money). Today a little over a year later, she showed negative for heart worm..... Sasha and I thank you!!!"
