Abstract: The objective of this study was to investigate the frequency of occurrence and variety of intestinal parasites among free-living wild animals. Fecal samples from wild mammals and birds at rehabilitation centers in the states of Mato Grosso do Sul and São Paulo were analyzed by sedimentation and flotation-centrifugation methods. Parasite eggs, oocysts, cysts and/or trophozoites were found in 71% of the samples. Cryptosporidium sp. oocysts were detected in fecal samples from oncillas (Leopardus tigrinus) and sca… Show more

“…In addition, the contrary effect, related to the transfer of parasitic infections from wild animals to domestic dogs, may occur, and in this case, the prevalence of dog parasites represent a bio-indicator of environmental contamination. Wild canids and felids, such as crab-eating fox (Cerdocyon thous), pumas (Puma concolor) and jaguars (Panthera onca), are present inside and surround the MDSP and are also hosts of these parasites founded in domestic dogs, such as Toxocara spp., Capillaria spp., Trichuris spp., Cystoisospora and Giardia spp., (FARRET et al, 2008;HOLSBACK et al, 2013;LIMA, 2009;SANTOS et al, 2015).…”
