Parasitic infections of domestic cats, Felis catus, in western Hungary.
Ectoparasites of dogs and cats in Albania
One hundred eighty-one dogs and 26 short-hair cats from suburban areas around Tirana, Albania were examined for ectoparasite infestation and found that prevalence of infestation with C. canis was significantly (p < 0.01) higher in dogs >6 months old; however, there was no difference between the sexes for the prevalences ofinfestation with those parasites.
Detection of Babesia canis subspecies and other arthropod-borne diseases in dogs from Tirana, Albania
The importance of arthropod-borne diseases increased in the recent past in particular due to frequent travel with dogs in or by importing of dogs from regions with endemic occurrence of these diseases.
Prevalence, intensity and seasonality of gastrointestinal parasites in abattoir horses in Germany
Seasonal prevalence and intensity of gastrointestinal parasites were studied through a longitudinal survey in 400 horses over a 17-month period in an abattoir in Germany and almost alike in male and female horses were almost alike, but ascarids were significantly more often recorded in male than in female horses.
Principal intestinal parasites of dogs in Tirana, Albania

Kinetics of exsheathment of infective ovine and bovine strongylid larvae in vivo and in vitro
The RUSITEC system represents a valid system for studying the kinetics of exsheathment of strongylid nematodes under in vitro conditions and the results confirm that ex sheathment generally occurs in the part of the gastrointestinal tract immediately anterior to the habitat of the adult parasite.
