URBAN CONTAMINATION BY ZOONOTIC HELMINTHES EGGS IN VLADIVOSTOK, RUSSIAT. V. MOSKVINA, L. V. ZHELEZNOVA AND A. V. ERMOLENKO
The aim of this study was estimate the contamination of intestinal parasites in dogs faecal samples in urban area over Vladivostok. During 2015 year (from April to December) totally 256 dogs faecal samples were collected and examined for the presents of intestinal parasites. Collected samples were divided into 5 groups according their collection area accordance with 5 districts Sovetskij, Pervomajiskij, Leninskij and Frunzenskij. Samples were examined using standard sedimentation- flotation method. Twenty-five samples (9.7%) being positive for the prevalence of endoparasites. Six different species of endoparasites were detected: 4 helminthes species: nematodes Ancylostoma caninum, Uncinaria stenocephala, Toxocara canis, T. mystax; tapeworms Taenia spp., and 1 protozoan species Cystoisospora sp. Higher prevalence of endoparasites were found in Frunzenskij district (14 %) and Pervomajskij district (12.5 %). The least prevalence was found in Sovetskij district (7.1 %). No correlation between districts and parasite infestation in faecal samples was found (p>0.05). However, the prevalence of endoparasites was low in present survey, nematodes with zoonotic potential include Ancylostoma caninum and Toxocara canis were found. Data obtained in this study is important to control of environment contamination with infective eggs.
