Journal of Clinical Pathology Bioogico 2 larvae may also be ingested by a variety of animals like mice or rabbits, where they stay in a dormant stage inside the animals’ tissue until the intermediate host has been eaten by a dog, where subsequent development is confined to the gastrointestinal tract.

Ascaridida Veterinary helminthology Parasites of dogs Dog diseases Animals described in Another possible route of infection is the ingesting of paratenic hosts that contain encysted larvae from egg consumption thus completing the life cycle for the parasite to re-infect its definite host, the dog.
