I'm have got myself into a terible state worrying about Toxocariasis. I have a little dog who wonders out and about on the farm, The farm dogs are wormed but I am so worried that he may pick up the roundworm larva from foxes/cats faeces and bring them bag in the house. He sleeps on our bed and lies on the sofa or someone's lap.Also travels in car. I have read so much on the internet and my anxiety level is so great.
I'm not concerned about Mosty because he is wormed monthly. My worry is that the roundworm is in the enviroment so he could have the larva on his feet or coat and could infect my family. Is this being rational?
This worrying all started when my indoor/outdoor cat vomited what looked like a roundworm despite regular worming. I treated cat and because he poos out in garden I was convinced that he would infect us all after being in the garden and then coming back in house. I even thought of taking the cat to the cat protection people.
