See the Worm Squirm

Below you will see the image of an intestinal round worm that has come from a patient of mine - I have seen these vomited up by both indoor only and outdoor cats. On our facebook page there is a short video of a tapeworm proglottid moving around.  These are the two most common intestinal worms we see here in Nova Scotia although I do still occassionally see cats (and yes, indoor ones too) with hookworms.
