Hommondia heydroni

The only named parasite of ruminants of this species is Hommondia heydroni. The one-humped camel was found to be one of the intermediate hosts of H. heydroni.

The parasite has an obligatory heteroxenous life cycle with a final canine host. It is infective only to dogs, while cats were found to be refractory.
