  10. what is the direct life cycle of the roundworm?
    1- adult roundworm in the small intestine

    2-eggs are passed in the feces

    3-egg turns into larvae in egg

    4-egg is ingested

    5-egg in stomach, and migrates through facia, abdomen up to the trachea causing irritation

    6-dog coughs up larvae and reswallows into the stomach where is now in an infective state

    7- incists in small intestine where more eggs are laid and excreated through feces
  11. Image Uploadwhat parasite does this egg belong too?
