Do tape worms only live in humans?

    No tapeworms can live in many different mammals, including your household dog or cat.  They need an intermediate host, which is usually a flea.  Once the flea bites an animal, the larvae are transmitted and will then begin growing into adult size tapeworms.

    Definitely not! They are also commonly found in pets such as cats, rabbits, and dogs. Very rarely do humans get tapeworm, and the most common way that humans get it is by eating infected food or by swallowing fleas or other bugs.
