AbstractIn the present study 30 stray dogs were collected, dissected and diagnosed in order to recognition on intestinal parasitic helminthes.
The results demonstrated that 50% of total 30 stray dogs were found to be infected with intestinal parasitic helminthes. These includes three species of trematodes Heterophyes (6.6%), Mesostephanus (6.6%) and Prohemistomum (6.6%), three species of cestodes Dipylidium caninum (40%), Echinococcus granulosus (6.6%) and Taenia taeniaformis (13.3%), and three species of nematodes, Ancylostoma (20%), Dirofilaria immitis (6.6%) and Toxocara canis (6.6%).
Three species of trematodes (Heterophyes, Mesostephanus and Prohenistomum) and one adult nematodes (Dirofilaria immitis) were isolated for the first time from stray dogs in Iraq.
