Serological survey for heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis) in dogs in Washington

Serological survey for heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis) in dogs in Washington

Journal of Parasitology 77(5): 800-802

The serological prevalence of D. immitis infection in 601 dogs in Washington, USA, was investigated in 1989-1990. Blood samples for serum were obtained from dogs approximately 2 years of age or older in humane society shelters (n = 392) or veterinary clinics (n = 209). Serum samples were tested for heartworm infection using an ELISA antigen test. Three (0.5%) dogs, all of which were born and lived several years in states other than Washington, were positive for D. immitis.
