English Abstract

Dirofilaria immitis is roundworm with worldwide distribution. Adult worms live in the right atrium and lung arteries. Microfilaria circulates in the peripheral vascu latures. The im of this study is to understand the infectivity with D. immitis in relation with gender and age of infected dogs in Meshkinshar, Ardabil Province. By simple classified accidental sampling 91 ownership dogs from 4 villages of Meshkin-Shahr were selected and bled in 2009. Thin and thick blood smear were prepared and after staining with Giemsa examined by light microscopy.In this study 19 dogs (%20.8) were found positive. The rate of infection in Parikhan, Kojanagh, Ahmad abad and Mirak villages were 12.5%, 5,8%, 57.1% and 0%, respectively. No statistically significant difference was found between D. immitis infection and gender (P= 0.7). But, The rate of infection in dogs with more than 2 years old was significantly higher than those with lower age (P= 0.03).D. immitis is a common parasite of dogs in Meshkinshar. regarding the increasing reports of human cases, the control of disease in animal reservoir hosts is necessary.
