TRANSPORT UPDATE: Our next available transport date for cats is July 5th. We will post our second July date for both dogs and cats as soon as we receive it from the ASPCA. Due to staff shortages, the ASPCA Spay/Neuter Alliance reduced the number of surgeries they can perform so we book up quickly, especially for female dogs.
Similar to tapeworms and roundworms, hookworms are intestinal parasites that live in the digestive system of your dog or cat. The hookworm attaches to the lining of the intestinal wall and feeds on your pet's blood. Its eggs are ejected into the digestive tract and pass into the environment through your pet's feces.
Female hookworms pass hundreds of microscopic eggs in the feces of infected dogs and cats, where they contaminate the environment.
Your pet may become infected when it inadvertently swallows hookworm larvae, often by grooming its feet, or from sniffing feces or contaminated soil.
