Larvae of the other two species may be found in various parts of the body, including the liver, perirenal tissues, retroperitoneal tissues, and pancreas.

These species do not produce lesions in the mesenteric arteries. Mixed infections of large and small strongyles are the rule. L3 enter the small intestine, where they shed their envelope, and then begin migration across the mucosal strongylus vulgaris, where they transform into L4.

L4 reach the arterioles of the intestine. It is this stage that can enter strongylus vulgaris blood vessels and migrate throughout the body for a period of up to strongylus vulgaris months.

During this time the L4 stage matures into the L5 or immature adult stage before returning to the intestinal wall.

The L5 stage resides primarily in the cecum and colon where the males and females copulate strongylus vulgaris starting the cycle over again.
