    • Yes, dog tapeworms can all cause disease in people and it is one of the reasons why regularly worming our pets is so important.

      People who are particularly at risk include pregnant women, babies, toddlers and immunocompromised individuals such as the elderly, diabetics and people with HIV-infection.†

      We can become infected with an intermediate stage of some species of tapeworm if we swallow tapeworm eggs. It’s even possible (though very uncommon) for people to develop a tapeworm infection if they swallow an infected flea.

    • Fleas can be infected with the larval stage (active immature form) of the flea tapeworm. If your cat or dog swallows an infected flea, they can end up with a tapeworm infection.

    • The problem is that often, you can’t. In many cases you simply won't know if there are worms hidden inside your pet's gut as symptoms can be difficult to spot.

      Symptoms can sometimes include irritation around the pet's bottom. Mature tapeworms start shedding egg-filled segments, which irritate your dog’s bottom as they wriggle out (and may resemble grains of rice in your pet’s stool). 

      There are a few symptoms you can try to look out for, such as vomiting, diarrhoea, a dull lifeless coat, loss of appetite, lack of energy and (especially in puppies) a pot-bellied appearance. If you notice any of these signs in your pet you should consult your vet for advice.
