Endoparasites. types of Endoparasites

Endoparasites, What are endoparasites? Endo-Parasites of animals live inside their host, and derive its food and nutrients from The Host. Endoparasites depend entirely on the host for survival. These parasite called endo-parasite are very dangerous to the health of an infected animal

What are endoparasites? lists of Endo-Parasite. types of Endoparasites for humans and animals. effects of Endo-parasite.

Endoparasites are organisms that live inside the body of their host organism. They derive their nourishment and complete their life cycle by feeding on the tissues, blood, or internal organs of the host. These parasites can infect a wide range of animals, including humans.

Here are some common types of endoparasites:

  1. Intestinal Parasites: These parasites reside in the gastrointestinal tract of the host. Examples include roundworms, tapeworms, hookworms, and threadworms. They can be acquired through contaminated food, water, or contact with infected individuals or animals.

  2. Blood Parasites: These parasites infect the bloodstream of the host and can cause diseases such as malaria, babesiosis, and trypanosomiasis. Examples of blood parasites include the Plasmodium species (causing malaria) and the Trypanosoma species (causing African sleeping sickness and Chagas disease).

  3. Liver and Tissue Parasites: Certain parasites specifically target the liver or other organs in the body. For instance, the liver fluke infects the liver, while the Toxoplasma gondii parasite can affect various tissues, including the brain and muscles.

  4. Lung Parasites: Lung flukes and lungworms are examples of parasites that inhabit the respiratory system of their host. These parasites can cause respiratory problems and other complications.


Endoparasites of humans

endoparasite of man is a parasite that lives inside the body of the man and survives by sucking all the nutrients that is supposed to enter the bloodstream
most of this and a parasite that lives in man answer that lives virtually inside the small intestine and the stomach. 
Most endoparasites of man is very dangerous while some are widely effective in human life

List of human endoparasites

What are endoparasites? lists of Endo-Parasite. types of Endoparasites for humans and animals. effects of Endo-parasite
  1. Tapeworms as an example of endoparasite
  2. Ascaris endoparasite
  3. Roundworm
  4. Liver fluke
Most endoparasites like the roundworms that live in the stomach of a human are very necessary for the balance of living.
 humans\’ excess of roundworms in the body causes a lot of restlessness.
this type of endoparasite a roundworm or Ascaris that is found in the stomach of a human is said to be dewormed once every 6 months.
there are endoparasites found in dogs, goats and other farm animals.

Endoparasites of dogs

One major question that comes to mind is do dogs also have endoparasites?
the answer to this question is yes dogs have endoparasite and some of those parasites are found inside the body of a dog as follows
Now these are a few of the endo parasites found in dogs
Differences between endoparasite and ectoparasite
the only Major difference between ectoparasites and endoparasites is that the endoparasites live inside the body of its host while the ectoparasite lives outside the body of their host
Endoparasites are  mostly in the form of long roundworms
some ectoparasites have wings like the lines Please some are possessed with exoskeletons like a tick
With the way it sounds endoparasite can also be found in fish. pigs, cattle etc.
conclusively we can categorically say that any parasite that is found inside the body of a living organism that causes discomfort is known as an endoparasite.
Like the name suggest endoparasite are a parasite that lives inside an organism,
although the life cycle will consist of them being transmitted or transferred through other mediums before it gets into the Host they complete most of the life cycle living in The Host.`   
effects of endoparasites on humans and animals
sometimes we ask that are there any benefits of humans or other animals having endoparasites like fluke, tapeworm, Ascaris and roundworm inside them
  • most of the excreted by this internal parasite known as endo parasite are poisonous to their host
  • Most activities of endoparasite affect digestion in the human system
  • internal parasites like they are ascaris roundworms or take one consume most of the food nutrients that are supposed to enter the blood system through the villi
  • in the case of tapeworm infection, the infected host will be looking dryer and thin every time
  • Like the ascari\’s endoparasite can cause dizziness in an infected patient
Most of the endo parasites like the tapeworm are becoming extinct from human
Endoparasite of cattle
 the cattle as a breed of animal can also be infected with endoparasites
Here is a list of endoparasite that affects cattle
  • Tapeworm
  • Fluke 
  • Roundworms
Most endoparasite recycles their lifetime from one organism to another like the tapeworm
Endo parasites of goats and sheep
here are a few lists of parasites that affect goats and sheep
  • Liver flukes
  • Tapeworm
  • Roundworm
It has been widely observed that endoparasites can be found in most living animals
