Dog tapeworm


Parasites: worms: Dog tapeworm, Echinococcus multilocularis. These larvae were found in the liver of a mouse. Each cysts (spherical, blue) seen here contain the inverted head of the worm. This stage in the life cycle of E.multilocularis occurs in an intermediate host, usually rodent which has eaten dog tapeworm eggs. The larvae lodge as invasive cysts in the body of the intermediate host, damaging tissue. When this infected tissue is consumed by the primary dog host, the tapeworm head emerges and attaches to the intestine of the dog.
