Abstract

The rodent tapeworm, Hymenolepis nana, is a zoonotic pathogen transmissible through the ingestion of eggs in feces or cysticercoids in arthropods. Since data addressing the potential for acquiring human infections of H. nanafrom pet rodents: are lacking, a survey of per stores in southern Connecticut, U.S.A., was conducted. Fecal Rotation analysis revealed 9.1% overall prevalence in 110 samples collected weekly from cages holding group-housed small animals, from 3 stores for 4 weeks, Of 11 species, only cages holding rats (3 of 22 samples), mice (6 of 30 samples), and prairie dogs (1 of 2 samples) were positive. Necropsies of 38 rats, 72 domestic mice, and 39 golden hamsters purchased from 9 stores showed prevalences of 31.6%, 22.2%, and 10.3%, respectively. Mean intensity was 66 worms per rat, 14 worms per mouse, and 15 worms per hamster. Overall, 75% of surveyed pet stores were selling infected rats, mice, or hamsters, indicating that pet store rodents posea potential threat to public health.
