Abstract

 Introduction & Objective: DOGs are among the closest animals to human residents and can by useful for human. A few of zoontic diseases are prevalent in Iran. DOGs are the reservoirs of many of these ZOONOSIS and a major role in transmission of infection. The aim of this study was to determine the zoonotic PARASITIC FAUNA of stray DOGs in YasujMaterials & Methods: In this descriptive study which was conducted at Yasuj suburbs in 2008, 25 DOGs’ corpses were necropsied and their tissues were studied for parasitic infections. Collected parasites were placed in special containers and stained for genus and species diagnosis based on their morphological features. The collected data were analyzed with the SPSS software, using descriptive analysis.Results: Of the 25 studied corpses, 23 DOGs were infected with at least one parasite. Helminthic infections of DOGs were consisted of: Taenia hydatigena, Mesocestoides sp., Echinococcus granulosus, Dipylidium caninum, Macracanthorhynchus hirudinaceus and Spirocerca lupi.Conclusion: Four of six detected helminthes in in DOGs in this study are zoonotic parasites which are important in human diseases. Among them larval stage of Echinococcus granulosus which causes hydatid cyst disease in human is very important.Control programs should be implemented in this region to prevent these zoonotic diseases.
