Spirocerca Lupi

Spirocerca Lupi is a worm that completes its life cycle in dogs and causes severe, potentially life-threatening diseases. Your fur kid can pick up this worm through intermediary hosts - from eating beetles or small animals such as mice, rats, lizards, wild birds and, most notably, the common Hadeda. Dogs become infected through eating the intermediary host, or its faeces, or through picking up the worm eggs which remain on the lawn and in pastures.
