Whats is the lifes cycle of Trichuris?
(transmission is via eggs directly consumed) 1. Eggs are consumed directly(eggs need high temp) 2. Eggs hatch and the larval development occurs in the jejunal wall. (larvae incubate 1mo in egg) 3. Adults then ove to the cecum where they mature and reproduce in approximately 11 weeks after ingestion of egg.

What are the two common worms of Strongyloides?
Strongyloides stercoralis- dog and Strongyloides tumefaciens- cat
What is the lifecycle of Strongyloides?
1. after passiing larvae(it will molt two molts to infetive 3rd stage) 2. 3rd stage may penetrate the skin or be consumed 3. 3rd stage larvae will migrate by way of the circulation and lungs, going to intestines as 4th stage larvae 4. 4th will molt to adult in the upper third of the sm. intestine
When will strongyloides be shed in the feces?
7 to 20 days after the infection

___ "the fox lungworm" is the lungworm of the dog and fox.

What is the indirect life cycle associated with Aleurostrongylus abstrusus?
molluscus is consumed by fish then the fish is consumed by cat, cat is then infected with Aleurostrongylus abstrusus

few clinical signs: cough will be followed by dyspnea, anorexia, and fever. Sneezing may be present

__ lives in the anterior half of the small intestints but produce bright blood due to the rapid movement through the intestines
What is the intermediate host for Eucoleus?
earthworm (direct/indirect) lifecycles
What is the intermediate host for Aleurostrongylus?
molluscus, fish --> faculative

What is the intermediate host for Filaroides
Does not required intermediate host
This is the only parasite considered to produce neoplams (tumors), tumors that are malignant esophageal sarcomas (specifically malignant)
What is the lifecycle of Spirocerca lupi?
egg--coprophagous beetle-- paratenic host-- dog or cat-- arteries/aorta-- wall of espohagus/stomach

vomiting, dysphagia, aortic aneurysm, and esophageal neoplasms. This can lead to secondary pulmonary osteoarthropathy.
__ is the stomach worm of cats
__ stomach worm of dogs
Physaloptera looks a lot like ascarids but differ in 5 ways:

- 2. They are in the shape of a C
- 3. Eggs are almost always in a vermiform stage
- 4. Eggs appear transparent
- 5. They feed on the mucosa and cause bleeding (dark)
What is the lifecycle of Physaloptera?
- indirect, but very common
- 1. Adults are attached to the mucosa of stomach. 2. Eggs pass out in the feces
