Parasites and Vector-borne Diseases in Client-owned Dogs in Albania

131 Seiten, Dissertation Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (2016), Softcover, A5

Zusammenfassung / Abstract

From March 2010 to April 2011 inclusive, faeces, ear swabs, ectoparasites collected by body search and full body combing, and blood samples were obtained from 602 client-owned dogs and examined for stages of endoparasites, ectoparasite infestation or presence of/exposure to vector-borne and other pathogens. Dog owners were invited to participate with their dogs in the study when attending four small animal clinics in Tirana, Albania. A questionnaire was completed for each dog in order to collect demographic and management information.

This survey is the first which evaluated the status of client-owned, veterinary-cared-for dogs from Albania for endo- and ectoparasite infections and the presence of/exposure to vector-borne diseases. Results show that dogs are at risk of a broad spectrum of parasites and bacterial vector-borne agents. These findings highlight the need for both veterinarians and dog owners to continue and to increase their efforts in the examination for and treatment of endo- and ectoparasitism including improvement of dog husbandry practices and routine prophylactic control measures.
