  • Wildlife rehabilitation is far from glamorous! 💩 Wednesday’s job list consists of lots of faecal examinations. We can tell a lot from hedgehog faeces, from internal parasites to how healthy their diet is and what bacteria they might be host to. All hedgehogs in our care have regular faecal microscopy to monitor their health. Today, this motley crew have all tested negative for the parasites they came in with. Some of them have been on long term treatments and are ready or at least nearly ready for release. Their parasite burdens ranged from the very common capillaria to lungworm and fluke. Fingers crossed for safe releases all round, just in time for hibernation season. Please Make sure you keep fresh water in a shallow bowl in your garden and if you’re able to, a shallow bowl of wet or dry cat food. A lot of the younger hedgehogs in the wild are bulking ready to hibernate. If hedgehogs are too small or are unwell, they will perish in the cold. They really need our help!❤️🐾🦔 #hedgehogs #hedgehogRescue #WildlifeRescue #vetnurse #fawrescue #microscopy #parasitology #wildliferehab

  • #CaseWIR #8 "Ancylostoma vs Necator"

Hookworm infection is caused by the blood-feeding nematode parasites. The hookworms infect an estimated 576-740 million individuals today of which 80 million are severely infected. The morbidity associated with severe infection includes intestinal blood loss, anemia, and protein malnutrition

Hookworms live in the small intestine, attach to the mucosa using their large mouths and suck blood. They release many active compounds to stop blood coagulating (so they can drink it much easier) and to reduce the immune response of the host. By suppressing the inflammatory and allergic reactions at their attachment site hookworms can survive for many years.

There are two major species of hookworms that infect humans, which are Ancylostoma duodenale (Old World Hookworm) and Necator americanus (New World Hookworm). Necator can only be transmitted through penetration of the skin whereas Ancylostoma can be transmitted percutaneously, orally, and probably transplacentally.  When A. duodenale is transmitted orally, the early migrations of the larvae cause Wakana disease which is characterized by nausea, vomiting, pharyngeal irritation, cough, dyspnea, and hoarseness.

  • “Support your local vet, buy a bulldog!” 🐾

We already know how problematic they are. One of their biggest issues is canine atopic dermatitis. An inherited predisposition to hypersensitivity reactions to environmental allergens. 
Atopic dogs will scratch, chew, lick or rub areas of the body such as their paws, face and rear end. They can have recurrent skin, ear and anal gland inflammation and infections. The itchy behaviour can cause hair loss and reddening and thickening of the skin. 
Parasites, such as fleas, or infection from bacteria or yeast can all worsen the level of itching from allergies. Therefore, it is important to treat any other health problems that could cause itching to manage your pet’s allergies. 
This baby girl had a number of problems: generalized demodicosis, Mallasezia (auricular) and Staphylococcus (cutaneous and auricular). The first photo was taken prior to any treatment. The second one was taken one weak after we started the protocol and the last one was taken after three weeks, and you can see how much better she looks and how happy she is! ❤️

  • Alguém esta com problemas...
Isso são ovos de Ascaris lumbricoides : :
 Os sinais e sintomas da infecção por nematóides por Ascaris lumbricoides podem incluir o seguinte:
 Desconforto abdominal.
 Cólica abdominal.
 Inchaço abdominal (especialmente em crianças)
 Febre.
 Tosse e / ou chiado no peito.
 Náusea.
 Vômito.
Os machos são menores que as fêmeas, e apresentam a cauda enrolada. O comprimento do parasita varia entre 15 e 40 centímetros, sendo que o número de parasitas em um mesmo hospedeiro pode chegar a 600. A contaminação por Ascaris lumbricóides ocorre pela ingestão de água ou alimentos contaminados por seus ovos.

  • Imagina que você está infestado de carrapatos, mas não possui mãos para retirar estes irritantes parasitas da sua pele. Este é um problema real para as serpentes e em alguns casos alguns indivíduos podem ficar com infestações enormes (digite "píton" e "carrapato" no google e você vai ver um caso extremo). Carrapatos podem ser transmissores de doenças para as serpentes e, dependendo da intensidade da infestação, podem deixar os animais extremamente debilitados. Na falta de mãos, as serpentes geralmente se esfregam em substratos duros ou trocam de pele com maior frequência para tentar se livrar dos ectoparasitos.

Na foto temos um filhote de Leptophis ahaetulla (cobra-cipo ou azulão-nóia), registrado em Porto trombetas, Pará, com um terceiro olho bastante peculiar.
