Roundworms are nematodes (nemato from the greek root meaning “thread”) these groups are subdivided for convenience according to the host organ in which they reside, eg, lung flukes, extraintestinal tapeworms, and intestinal roundworms. Features of roundworms / nematodes there are a number of basic body plans that show up again and again in unrelated animal groups - one is the hydra-like body with a crown of tentacles, one is a head, neck, and body with bilaterally-symmetrical appendages, and another is the basic worm: long, cylindrical, squirmy.

Hookworm infection is often asymptomatic however, a pruritic papulovesicular rash (ground itch) may develop at the site of larval penetration, usually on the feet migration of large numbers of larvae through the lungs occasionally causes löffler syndrome, with cough, wheezing, eosinophilia, and sometimes hemoptysis. Roundworms may be contracted in different ways, making them easy to spread and hard to control your cat may take in (ingest) infective roundworm eggs from the area where it lives or by eating mice or other small animals (hosts) carrying young worms (larvae) infection in kittens may also occur through the mother's milk.

Strongyloides adult worms live in the mucosa and submucosa of the duodenum and jejunum released eggs hatch in the bowel lumen, liberating rhabditiform larvae most of the larvae are excreted in the stool after a few days in soil, they develop into infectious filariform larvae.
Other species of roundworms the nematodes or roundworms are one of the most diverse of all animals nematode species are very difficult to distinguish over 28,000 have been described of which over 16,000 are parasitic. The nematodes (uk: / ˈ n ɛ m ə t oʊ d z /, us: / ˈ n iː m ə ˌ t oʊ d z /) or roundworms constitute the phylum nematoda (also called nemathelminthes) they are a diverse animal phylum inhabiting a broad range of environments. Nematodes, also called roundworms, are members of the animal phylum nematoda these worms have a complete digestive system and are more complex than the flatworms (phylum platyhelminthes) but lack a circulatory system and other advanced features found in the annelids (segmented worms.
The treatment of choice for intestinal nematodes, with the exception of strongyloides, is albendazole or mebendazole single-dose or short-course regimens with these oral agents (albendazole 400mg once or mebendazole 500mg once, or 100mg bid for 3 days) cure more than 90% of ascaris infections for. Roundworms are found as free-living nematodes, as well as endoparasites that live within the body of a host animal non-parasitic free-living nematodes are present in bodies of water, including deep ocean trenches and bodies of fresh water as well as in soil.
