WHERE THEY LIVE IN THE HOST
Adult worms live in the small intestine and feed on partially digested food. Young worms migrate through the liver and lungs.
HOW THEY SPREAD
Infected dogs and cats pass large numbers of worm eggs in their feces. The eggs then contaminate the environment where they can be ingested. These eggs are durable and can remain infectious for years. Rodents and insects can also carry roundworms. Puppies and kittens can be infected before birth.
