Transmission of tapeworms (taeniasis) occurs by faecal-oral route, which is the consumption of food containing larvae or eggs of these worms when contaminated with animal feces or eating infected animal meat. Symptoms of tapeworm infection are generally rarely complaints, symptoms that can be felt such as fever, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and even diarrhea, weight loss, worm eggs or even the worms can be seen in the feces. If the above symptoms are found, immediately consult a doctor for examinations such as blood hematology, stool examination, abdominal X-ray or ultrasound, if necessary a CT scan / MRI of the abdomen can be done. Treatment is given such as deworming and if necessary surgery.
So it is important to maintain hand and body hygiene after contact with animals, especially after cleaning animal feces, avoid using fertilizer from animal feces for food vegetables, avoid consuming raw or immature food whose cleanliness cannot be ensured, Wash vegetable food with running water until clean. Avoid open defecation and clean your pet's feces in public places.
Although the transmission of tapeworms is not through fleas, not washing hands after contact with dogs and even after eating food, can increase the risk of transmitting other diseases such as diarrhea due to various bacteria, parasites or other types of worms. You can check your dog to the vet, to detect infectious diseases in dogs. If the dog is not infected with tapeworms, it will not infect tapeworm eggs or larvae, keep the dog clean by regular bathing, avoid the dog from eating dirty food, carry out routine vaccinations according to the dog's needs.
