SPIRUROIDEA

The spiruroidea is represented in cats by a number of species that parasitize the stomach of the feline host. Typically, these worms produce small, thick-shelled eggs that are infectious to some arthropod host. The larvae that live in the arthropod are capable of utilizing various vertebrate paratenic hosts that will transmit the worms to the feline final host.
