Comparison of selected canine vector-borne diseases between urban animal shelter and rural hunting dogs in Korea
TLDR
It is indicated that the risk of exposure to vector-borne diseases in rural hunting dogs can be quite high in Korea, while the urban environment may not be suitable for tick infestation on dogs, as evidenced by the low infection status of tick-borne pathogens in stray dogs. Expand
First report of feline intestinal trichomoniasis caused by Tritrichomonas foetus in Korea.
TLDR
This is the first clinical case of feline intestinal trichomoniasis caused by T. foetus in Korea and involves 2 female and male littermate Siamese cats raised in a household in Korea with a history of chronic persistent diarrhea. Expand
An Outbreak of Caparinia tripilis in a Colony of African Pygmy Hedgehogs (Atelerix albiventris) from Korea
TLDR
This is the first report of caparinic mite infestation in hedgehogs from Korea and the mites were identified as Caparinia tripilis. Expand
Effects of Disinfectants on Larval Development of Ascaris suum Eggs
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the treatment of A. suum eggs with many commercially available disinfectants does not affect the embryonation, although some disinfectants may delay or stop the embryos development, and they can hardly kill them completely. Expand
Efficacy of a combination of 10% imidacloprid and 1% moxidectin against Caparinia tripilis in African pygmy hedgehog (Atelerix albiventris)
TLDR
This report suggests that a combination formulation of 0.1 ml/Kg of 10% imidacloprid + 1% moxidectin spot-on for cats is also useful for the control of Caparinia tripilis infestation in hedgehogs. Expand
Zoonotic Intestinal Trematodes in Stray Cats (Felis catus) from Riverside Areas of the Republic of Korea
TLDR
It has been confirmed that stray cats in 5 major riverside areas of Korea are highly infected with various species of ZITs. Expand
First Blindness Cases of Horses Infected with Setaria Digitata (Nematoda: Filarioidea) in the Republic of Korea
TLDR
This is the first blindness cases of 15 horses infected with S. digitata in Korea, and motile worms found in the eyes of 8 horses were characterized by the tapering posterior terminal end of the body with a smooth knob. Expand
Serological and molecular prevalence of canine vector-borne diseases (CVBDs) in Korea
TLDR
The risk of exposure to major vector-borne diseases in dogs is quite high throughout all areas of South Korean Peninsula and dogs once exposed to CVBDs can remain as lifetime reservoirs of disease for both other animals and humans in the close vicinity, and should be treated with preventative medications to minimise the risk of pathogen transmission by the competent vectors. Expand
Effects of Kimchi Extract and Temperature on Embryostasis of Ascaris suum Eggs
TLDR
Results indicate that embryogenesis of A. suum eggs in kimchi extract was affected by duration of refrigeration, and that all eggs stopped larval development completely in kKimchi kept at 5℃ for up to 60 days. Expand
Ctenocephalides canis is the dominant flea species of dogs in the Republic of Korea
TLDR
The first report on the distribution survey of flea species infesting dogs in Korea and the first report of C. orientis infesting a dog in Korea is reported. Expand
