A single infection of pigs with Hyostrongylus rubidus results in a population of adult worms which is limited in numbers, probably as the result of a loss of worms . Although some (eg, Ascarops strongylina, Physocephalus sexalatus) are more obvious grossly, only Hyostrongylus rubidus is considered to be pathologically. Vet Rec.

Since the eggs are very similar to those of other pig roundworms e. Pigs of anay age become infected after ingesting such larvae, but piglets are usually more exposed and susceptible. After repeated infections the sows develop an incomplete immunity, which causes the immature larvae in the nodules hyostrrongylus enter hypobiosis, i.

After shedding, the eggs release the larvae in the environment, which develop to infective L3-larvae in about 5 days, better outdoors in humid pastures, than indoors.

This can also happen in periods of adverse environmental conditions winter, dryness, etc.

Loss of appetite, anemia and diarrhea can also occur. Abstract Sows repeatedly infected with large single doses of third stage infective Hyostrongylus rubidus larvae show an anamnestic circulating agglutinin rubieus to the parasite as detected by the passive haemagglutination reaction.

Diagnosis is confirmed by detecting typical strongylid eggs in the feces. Details Written by P. The parasitic burden, as determined by the duration of egg laying and total egg output, was considerably lower for the group reared on the infected mothers.
