Epidemiological analysis of cases, and clinical features of cardiovascular dirofilariasis (heartworm disease) in dogs in Germany

No evidence of dirofilariasis was found in a selection of dogs, with and without right-sided heart disease, which had never left Germany. Among 175 dogs with heart disease which had been taken abroad, 22 had dirofilariasis, compared with 17 of 170 dogs imported from southern Europe, and 5 of 59 dogs in service with the US Army in Germany.
