Hookworms are parasites that you can get if you step barefoot or touch a surface with even the smallest amount of fecal matter. Once the hookworm larvae go through your skin, you’re infected.
The site of the infection will have a rash.
Do make sure your non-human family members (like dogs and cats) keep away from the feces of other animals. Symptoms of infections for our furry friends and family include weight loss, lethargy, loss of appetite, and could possible lead to death, due to all the mentioned symptoms.
