  • Tapeworms are almost always contracted through fleas. Fleas will consume tapeworm eggs, which will grow inside the flea's body. When a dog or cat eats a flea larvae or eggs, the flea's body is digested. The tapeworm is then freed from the flea and migrates to the intestines where it begins to drain nutrients from its host. A vet can prescribe medication for the problem.
