Does anyone know what kind? Do their eggs sometimes float in the air? Is there a treatment for this?

Pets are merely a vector to spread the worm eggs. As far as I know, dogs and cats do not get the pinworms that humans can get.

Pinworms can only infest humans. They are transmitted through the fecal-oral route.
