Asked in Guinea Worms
How can the guinea worm be avoided?
Guinea worm disease is only transmitted by drinking stagnant water with Guinea worm larvae in it. As such, if you avoid drinking stagnant water from the few remaining Guinea worm endemic areas you are not at risk. If you do need to drink stagnant water from these remote areas, simply filtering your water through a cloth filter will remove the water fleas that carry the larvae.
Asked in Cat Health
How does a common house cat get worms?
Perhaps you have heard of a pet cat that has had worms. The cat did not get the worms by eating the directly. The hosts for the tapeworm larvae are usually fleas. The host fleas are infested with the tapeworm larvae. When the cat cleans itself, it swallows the fleas. The tapeworm larvae on the fleas change into tiny tapeworms. They then live and grow as parasites in the intestines of the cat. The tapeworms produce eggs and fertilize the with sperm. The fertilized eggs are carried out of the cat's body as waste.
