Tapeworms

tapeworms

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

Feedback from our clients

  • "These guys really care for the animals they see. I started using Dr Hubbard when i got chickens. No one wanted to treat them as pets but she was, at that time a mobile vet, and helped me with them. I've since used her for my cats and dogs add well. Now she's opened an office in Blountstown! Yay!"

  • "My dog required surgery to fix a lady issue. Once they sedated her, they realized there were more problems than originally thought. Dr. Hubbard didn't charge me any more, and fixed my baby up. The care they show is second to none. Great, friendly, reliable staff."
