Enterobiasis, or pinworm infection as it is commonly called, is an intestinal infection caused by the parasitic roundworm called Enterobius vermicularis.
The disease is transmitted by ingesting the eggs of the pinworm.
These eggs travel to the small intestine where, after approximately one month, they hatch and mature into adult worms.
In order to treat the disease, either mebendazole or pyrantel pamoate will be given in two oral doses spaced two weeks apart.
Their hosts are humans and they can't live in the dog gut. However, dogs do suffer from their own unique intestinal parasites.
