Abstract

Veterinarians and parasitologists must be aware of the prevalences ofparasites in their regions in order to develop and implement effective diagnostic and control strategies for canine parasites and parasiticdiseases. This article reports on the results of a national survey inwhich fecal specimens colleted in a consistent manner from dogs housed in animal shelters throughout the United States were examined for parasites via a sensitive fecal flotation procedure. The results indicate that intestinal nematode and coccidial parasites remain common in dogs in the United States, particularly those that have not received regular veterinary care. Certain parasites that are important as disease agents in dogs or as potential disease agents in humans were common throughout the United States. Based on the results of this survey, the likelihood that untreated dogs harbor at least one of these major intestinal parasites is high. There is growing concern about human infection with canine parasites, particularly Ancylostoma species and T. canis. The high prevalence of these parasites recorded in this study indicates a need to continually monitor dogs for parasites of zoonotic significance and, if necessary, to treat periodically to remove the parasites.
