Abstract

Faecal samples from 81 dogs aged between 2 months and 13 years were collected in the small animal clinic (37 domestic dogs) and the animal shelter (44 stray dogs) located in the Faculty of Veterinary Sciences in Zaragoza city (northeast Spain) and screened for the presence of Cryptosporidium oocysts, Faeces were concentrated by the formalin-ethyl acetate method and smears of the sediment were stained by using the modified Ziehl-Neelsen technique. Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts were detected in six dogs (7.4%) aged from 2 months to 6 years. Infection wasdetected in both domestic (three) and stray (three) dogs and all of them excreted few oocysts (0-1 oocyst per 20 x field). No statisticallysignificant differences in prevalence occurred between dogs younger than 6 months (11.8%) and the older dogs (6.2%). Prevalences were not significantly different between domestic (8.1%) and stray dogs (6.8%). Diarrhoea was recorded in three of the positive dogs (50%), although additional enteric parasites such as oocysts of Isospora spp. were alsodetected in their faeces. Nevertheless, prevalence was significantly higher in diarrhoeic (30%) versus non-diarrhoeic (4.2%) dogs (P < 0.05). Cryptosporidium was one of the parasites most frequently detected in the dogs surveyed.
