Cryptosporidiosis in dogs and cats in hyogo prefecture japan



Cryptosporidiosis in dogs and cats in hyogo prefecture japan



Japanese Journal of Parasitology 38(3): 139-143



Various aspects of Cryptosporidium infection were studied in 213 dogs and 507 cats captured in Hyogo Prefecture. Their rectal contents were examined by sucrose centrifugal-floatation technic. Oocysts of Cryptosporidium were detected in 3 dogs (1.4%) and 20 cats (3.9%). The 3 positive dogs showed normal feces and were 6 months or less in estimated age. On the other hand, 10 of the 20 (50.0%) positive cats were aged 1 year or more. Of the cats examined, 66 (13.0%) showed diarrhea and 441 (87.0%) evacuated normal feces. Cryptosporidium infection was observed in 6.1% of the former cats and 3.6% of the latter, with no significant difference of prevalence (p > 0.05). However, the mean number of discharged oocysts was 1,817 in cats with diarrhea as compared with 191 in "non-diarrhea" cats. Other parasites than Cryptosporidium, 5 species of 5 genera, [Spirometra erinacei Toxocara Outi, Capillaria sp. Pharyngostomum cordatum and isospora felis] were also detected, but no particular relationship was noted between Cryptosporidium infection and these parasites.
