Comparison of common fecal flotation techniques for the recovery of parasite eggs and oocysts.
Results indicate that centrifugation consistently recovered more eggs than other methods, and veterinarian and their staff should better utilize fecal examinations in their routine diagnostic plan.
Prevalence of Bartonella henselae antibodies in pet cats throughout regions of North America.
The prevalence of serum antibody titers to B. henselae was determined for selected pet cats from 33 geographic locations throughout the United States and several areas in western Canada and appears to be influenced by climate.
World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology (W.A.A.V.P.) second edition: guidelines for evaluating the efficacy of parasiticides for the treatment, prevention and control of flea
These second edition guidelines, updated from the 2007 version (Marchiondo et al., 2007), are intended to assist the planning and conduct of laboratory and clinical studies to assess the efficacy of
The biology, ecology, and management of the cat flea.
Recent studies concerning mating and oviposition, especially as they impact the likelihood of survival by immatures, are discussed and advances in pesticide chemistry that provide tools for better control of adult fleas on the host are discussed.
Accurate diagnosis of Giardia spp and proper fecal examination procedures.
It was determined that the SNAP Giardia test can improve a practice's ability to identifyGiardia-infected dogs and recover the eggs of other intestinal parasites.

Effective tick control is more difficult to achieve than effective flea control, because of the abundance of potential alternative hosts in the tick life cycle.
Identification of a nasal nematode (Eucoleus boehmi) in greyhounds
Because of its small size its location within the epithelial lining of the nasal mucosa, turbinates, and sinuses, and difficulty in differentiating the bipolar plugged eggs, E. boehmi probably occurs more often than is currently diagnosed.

Gaining an understanding of tick distribution, tick ecology, and seasonal occurrence of different tick life stages can help with the management of tick infestations and reduce the incidence of tick-transmitted diseases in dogs and cats.
Distribution and Prevalence of Echinococcus multilocularis in Wild Predators in Nebraska, Kansas, and Wyoming
Findings support previous estimates that the southernmost front of the parasite's range extends along the southern border of Wyoming, eastward through central Nebraska and central Illinois into Indiana and Ohio.
Molecular phylogeny of isolates of Ctenocephalides felis and related species based on analysis of ITS1, ITS2 and mitochondrial 16S rDNA sequences and random binding primers
The phylogenetic relationships among 31 different flea isolates representing seven different species were studied by nucleotide sequence comparison and overall findings do not support the existence of subspecies of C. felis.
