Roundworms are some of the most common worms found in wildlife worldwide.
Roundworms are often highly visible and are frequently seen in the abdominal cavity by hunters when cleaning game.
Usually the animal has no symptoms, except for the presence of the worms themselves, but vomiting and diarrhea may be observed.
Generally no, although some species may infect humans (see Raccoon Roundworm and Trichinosis).
Although these infections are rare, there is a risk of getting the same symptoms as seen with the raccoon roundworm. Potentially fatal.
Symptoms will depend on the species involved (see Raccoon Roundworm).
Roundworms are parasitic nematodes found around the world.
Infections in non-normal host species may lead to disease (see Raccoon Roundworm and Brainworm).
