Other parasites

  • Setaria spp. use peritoneal cavity of many herbivores as their final destination
    • Dead individuals may cause granulomatous peritonitis
    • Sheathed microphilariae deposited in the peritoneal cavity move to blood and are transferred to their intermediate hosts, the mosquitos or other biting insects
