Animal Parasites

Parent Category: Animal Life
Animal parasites refer to the common parasites that afflict animals, such as worms, ticks, mites, lice, and fleas. Animal parasites come in two varieties, external and internal, and can be very troublesome for the animal, sometimes leading to severe illness or death. There are often treatment options for these parasites, but the best way avoid exposure is for animals to receive regular veterinary care.

Anti parasitic medication, like "Frontline" and "K-9 Advantics"  keep ticks off of dogs. But cutting down long grasses and trimming  bushes and tree limbs keeps ticks from climbing onto the tips and  getting on your dog when it brushes by.
Common habitats of segmented worms are noermally around dirt.

Rub him down with a dryer sheet like "Cling- Free" and then brush  him with a boar bristle brush-not a nylon brush. Nylon creates  static. But wait till dark first, then throw a wool sweater on top  of him and yank it off real quick, so you can watch the little blue  sparks fly!
No lice is in the insect group of parasites called louse.
I am going to assume that you mean host, parasite, and environment.  If this is the case then a parasite is an organism or animal that  uses another creature for its survival. Some are completely  dependent on their host and feed off nutrients in the hosts body.  An example would be the Tape...
The ingredient "Permethrin" has been shown to be effective in killing bed bugs, yes. I haven't personally experimented yet but I am tonight. Will post results!
Probably the head of the tick if you didn't remove it correctly.  Dump some mineral oil on the tick, [enough to completely cover it]  and then gently twist tick counter clockwise while gently tugging  tick out. Do not try to sqeeze it out. It will eventually be  dislodged by the body's own...
It sucks the blood of the host human from its intestine and may cause severe anemia.
Hookworms live in the intestines and suck blood from the human host  through the intestinal wall.
The eggs, larva, and pupa go dormant at temperatures below  freezing. The adults die at these temperatures.
Pinworms can enter the body the pinworm eggs may get caught under  the nails of a human and when the eggs hatch they dig in to the  humans skin and may live there for up to two weeks
No you can not..it is steroid..Use antifungal cream for ringworm.. p/s=i am a doctor
Because there's no source of food where they live in the Hadal zone (the deepest darkest trenches of the ocean) so they need bacteria to turn toxic chemicals streaming out of hydrothermal vents into "food" (chemicals they can use to survive).
Aristotle proposed that fleas are spontaneously produced from  putrefying matter. Reference:   The Lagoon: How Aristotle Invented Science ISBN-10: 0670026743

No, neither will get rid of parasites.
Depends upon the medicine. I am assuming that you are using any of  the most popular flea treatments for your dog's flea control. With  that in mind, here are the recommended dosages of various  medicines.    Frontline Plus orange -- 0.67 ml per month or   Advantage aqua pack -- one pack...

Fleas themselves do not cause hair-loss. Rather, if the cat is infested, its continued scratching is the most likely culprit. If the hair-loss is extreme, however, another cause might be sarcoptic mange. In addition, there are several dermatological afflictions that can cause hair loss. Your...
  == Answer ==   You should tell your veternarian and he/she should have a treatment plan set up for your dog. The type of medicine given depends on the type of parasite inside your dog so it's best to just go to them.

Because a flea is made up of cells, and cells are living things. So the smallest living thing is a cell.
The body has several defenses in place to keep harmful worms out of  your body. There are a few, however, that can occasionally  penetrate these defenses. Hook and Ring worms are some of the many  common culprits, but in the US these cases are fairly uncommon.

The first thing you need to do is try to identify what kind of worms your dog has. Once you've done this, go to your local pet store and ask for worming medication specific to the worms you are trying to treat. It would be easiest to take a stool sample to your local vets office and have them...
Most worms will survive in sand, but not all.
Not usually. They will bite you if they cannot find a more  preferable source of food, then jump off.    There are some fleas that will infest humans, but they will  normally live in the bedding or clothing and only jump onto the  body when in need of a meal, although some have been known to...

Worms find food by chewing their way through the earth and through  the decaying material on top of the soil. As they chew, they eat  and absorb food items while allowing unusable items, such as dirt,  to pass through their systems.

There is an ingredient in cat shampoo that kills head lice.
I don't think you should do that if you do your hair will start falling out.
It depends, there are free-living ones that feed like most otheranimals, but the parasitic kind will usually find a host - adomestic animal or a human. The main difference is the fact thatthe parasitic versions larval stages can cause cysts in the brainsof the affected creature.
The female anopheles mosquitoes carry malarial parasites.
Scabies is caused by mites which create tunnels under your skin which are easily noticeable after they lay their eggs, the process of them hatching is what causes the itching, fleas don't burrow and only bite to cause a more or less harmless infection which itches if given attention.
Depends which pet.. Worms can be spread from animal to animal also if they are hunting mice etc they eat the mouse and catch its worms if it has them. They can even get them from swollowing an infected flea.

  == Answer ==   Not sure if this is "natural" but I prefer to use Avon's product "Skin So Soft".  It feels a little "oily" but it feels natural and it repels ticks and mosquitoes.  It is also great for de-greasing and cleaning car-gunk off of your hands.  And it leaves...
no dog fleas can't give a person headlice. you get head lice from people not animals.
Fleas have an unquenchable appetite. Imagine carrying something on your body that will bite you several hundred times a day. That is exactly what happens when your pet has fleas. The nearly constant biting causes your pet to scratch, bite and clean to the point that hair falls out. These irritated...
