The aim of this book is to clarify the role of parasites in the development and use of Antiparasitic Vaccines and to provide a history of the use of these drugs in the United States. Expand
Giardiasis in dogs and cats: update on epidemiology and public health significance.
Because these genotypes are found primarily in humans, and no comprehensive studies to address zoonotic transmission of G. duodenalis are yet available, the potential role of dogs and cats cannot be conclusively excluded. Expand
Prevalence of intestinal parasites in pet dogs in the United States.
Data indicate that intestinal parasites remain a common, important finding in dogs presenting to veterinary practices although in most of the country infection rates in pet dogs appear to be greatly reduced from the level reported from dogs in animal shelters. Expand
Prevalence and geographic distribution of Dirofilaria immitis, Borrelia burgdorferi, Ehrlichia canis, and Anaplasma phagocytophilum in dogs in the United States: results of a national clinic-based
The results suggest that these disease agents may be present over a wider geographic area, and thus pose greater animal and public health risks, than is currently recognized. Expand
Hookworms of dogs and cats as agents of cutaneous larva migrans.
Improved diagnostic tests are needed to identify the causative species involved and understand the epidemiology of hookworm disease, and how the biology of the agents and how that biology may impact disease are described. Expand

The article discusses the pathophysiological mechanisms behind the disease induced, the means for diagnosing the disease, and the means of assessing the success of therapy, as well as the treatment of potential complications of heartworm infection. Expand
In vitro screening of two Nigerian medicinal plants (Vernonia amygdalina and Annona senegalensis) for anthelmintic activity.
Although traditional veterinary healers and local livestock farmers claim both plants are effective as anthelmintics, the result indicate that only A. senegalensis showed promisingAnthelmintic activity especially with use of ground whole plant materials as used by some farmers. Expand
Inactivation of Cryptosporidium parvum Oocysts by Ammonia
It is shown that environmentally relevant concentrations of free ammonia may significantly increase the inactivation of oocysts in ammonia-containing environments. Expand
Feline Clinical Parasitology
Because of the immense worldwide popularity of cats and due to the amount of travel undertaken by cats and their owners, this exhaustive reference has strong appeal to practitioners and veterinary parasitologists in North America and around the world. Expand
Sarcocystis neurona n. sp. (Protozoa: Apicomplexa), the etiologic agent of equine protozoal myeloencephalitis.
Sarcocystis neuronan n. sp. is proposed for the apicomplexan taxon associated with myeloencephalitis in horses. Only asexual stages of this parasite presently are known, and they are found withinExpand
