Chinchilla lan gera um roedor proveniente do Chile e sua cria o com fins comerci is. As doencas parasitarias, principalmente giard ase podem causar problemas cl nicos e sanitarios, causando perdas produtivas e econ micas. Foram colhidas amostras de fezes de 220 chinchilas de urna cria o comercial no sul do Brasil e 35 amostras de chinchilas da Reserva Nacional las Chinchillas no Chile, e submetidas o m todo de Faust e colaboradores. O total de amostras positivas para cistos de Giardia sp. foi de 31,37%(80/255); da cria o comercial foi de 36,36%(80/220). O n mero de amostras que apresentaram mais de 5 cistos/campo foi 4,55%(10/220). Todas as amostras dos anim is da Reserva foram negativas.

Parasitic diseases, mainly giardiasis, may cause clinical and sanitary problems and lead to production and economic losses. Fecal samples were collected from 220 chinchillas pertaining to a commercial breeding facility in southern Brazil and from 35 chinchillas from Las Chinchillas National Reserve in Chile. All samples were analyzed using the method proposed by Faust et al. Positive samples for Giardia cysts amounted to 31.37% (80/255); 36.36% (80/220) was recovered from the commercial breeding facility. The rate of samples with over 5 cysts/field was equivalent to 4.55% (10/220). All of the samples collected from the National Reserve were negative for Giardia sp. No association was found between positive rates for Giardia sp. and the age of chinchillas.
