The prevalence of Dirofilaria immitis and other parasites in urban pound dogs in north-eastern Victoria


, : The prevalence of Dirofilaria immitis and other parasites in urban pound dogs in north-eastern Victoria. Australian veterinary journal 58(3): 111-114

The results of a survey investigating the prevalence of dirofilaria immitis and other helminth and protozoan infections in urban dogs in north-eastern Victoria are presented. D. immitis was detected in 2.7% of the general population (8.3% of dogs older than 2 years). Microfilariae of D. immitis were not detected in the peripheral circulation of 30% of dogs infected with the adult parasites. The most prevalent gastro-intestinal parasites were Dipylidium caninum 57%; Trichuris vulpis 41%; Toxocara canis 38%; and Uncinaria stenocephala 26%. The prevalence of T. canis in dogs less than one year of age was 73% and this decreased with increasing age. No Echinococcus granulosus adults were detected. Sarcocystis spp and isospora ohioensis were the most commonly seen coccidians.
