Also necessary that your pet food or caresses
deworming is intended to eliminate parasitic worms from the intestines.

The two most important families of intestinal parasites are roundworms:
roundworms, whipworms, hookworms and tapeworms:
Tapeworms, Dipylidium tapeworms and Echinococcus.

T. gondii is a parasitic organism that resides primarily in cats. However, it can be found in most warm-blooded animals, including the estimated 50 million people in the United States. One study suggests that the parasite has altered human behavior enough to shape entire cultures.
Further research can explore how exactly the parasite modifies the brain in a manner so precise. Potential targets for brain research include the stress hormone corticosterone and the brain chemical dopamine. Scientists also want to see if the rats become less afraid of pictures of cats or scents of different predators of rats.
