Abstract

Between January and December 1998, 300 stray cats from Monchengladbach andsurroundings, Germany, were examined to collect new data on the prevalenceand range of endo- and ectoparasites. In total, 51.2 per cent of the cats were coproscopically positive for endoparasites. 43.3 per cent of the cats excreted Toxocara cati, 5.1 per cent Cystoisospora tells, 4.1 per cent cestode (Taeniids, Dipylidium) stages, 2 per cent hookworm eggs, 1.4 per cent each Cystoisospora rivolta or Capillaria spp., and 0.3 per cent each Giardiaspp. or Opistorchis felineus. 46.4 per cent of the cats were infected withonly one endoparasite species, while 4.8 per cent had multiple infections. T. cati was less frequently diagnosed during the summer than during other seasons. Endoparasites, especially T. cati, were found more often in young cats (less than 6 months of age). The rate of infection with intestinal endoparasites declined with age, whereas seroprevalence of Toxoplasma gondii increased with age (in total 65.6 %). Ectoparasites were present on 49.1 percent of the cats. Fleas were found on 42.9 per cent, ticks on 9.3 per cent, and ear mites on 8.7 % of the animals. 8.3 per cent of the cats had an infestation with two or three different ectoparasites. Ear mites were seen more often in cats that were also infested with fleas. Cats with poor physical or nutritional condition were more frequently infested with ectoparasites.
