It is a very "silent" parasite but it can have devastating AND deadly effects if not detected early enough.
In the initial faze it can be detected by a feacal smear. In more advanced stages it can be seen as calcifications on especially the spine when X-rays are taken. The calcifications will eventually cause mobility and swallowing problems. In the initial faze it can still be treated successfully with macrocyclic lactones. For more information please feel free to contact the surgery.
