Monitoring parasitic infections in the red fox is essential for obtaining baseline knowledge on the spread of diseases of veterinary and medical importance. In this study, screening forExpand
Comparative copro-diagnosis of Echinococcus multilocularis in experimentally infected foxes
Faecal samples from 15 foxes experimentally infected with Echinococcus multilocularis were examined until 90 days post-infection (dpi) by microscopical identification of eggs isolated byExpand
Genetically distinct isolates of Spirocerca sp. from a naturally infected red fox (Vulpes vulpes) from Denmark.
Spirocerca lupi causes formation of nodules that may transform into sarcoma in the walls of aorta, esophagus and stomach of infected canids. In February 2013, post mortem examination of a red foxExpand
A coprological investigation of gastrointestinal and cardiopulmonary parasites in hunting dogs in Denmark.
A coprological survey was conducted to investigate the prevalence of parasites infecting hunting dogs with no history of recent anthelmintic treatments and with no overt clinical manifestations ofExpand
First record of Taenia ovis krabbei muscle cysts in muskoxen from Greenland.
A first record of Taenia ovis krabbei muscle cysts in a muskoxen (Ovibos moschatus) from the Kangerlussuaq population in West Greenland suggests that introduced muskoxen now contributes to theExpand
The occurrence of Angiostrongylus vasorum in terrestrial slugs from forests and parks in the Copenhagen area, Denmark.
A total of 298 slugs belonging to four species, Arion lusitanicus, A. ater, A. ater rufus and Limax maximus, were collected from six different localities within a radius of 30 km from Copenhagen andExpand
PCR detection of Angiostrongylus vasorum in faecal samples of dogs and foxes
The cardiovascular nematode Angiostrongylus vasorum is spreading in the fox and dog populations of northern Europe. A. vasorum can result in severe clinical manifestations in dogs; therefore,Expand
Morphological and molecular analyses of larval taeniid species in small mammals from contrasting habitats in Denmark.
Taeniid infections in intermediate hosts manifest themselves as extraintestinal larval stages which, in early development, lack species-specific characteristics. The inability to distinguishExpand
