What are Hook Worms?

Hookworms are an intestinal parasite that frequently infect dogs and cats. They are about 1/2 inch long, but they are very, very thin, so they are not visible to the naked eye. Hookworms use their teeth to attach themselves to the inner intestinal wall of their host. Once attached, the hookworms can suck up to .1cc of blood per day from the intestinal blood vessels.
