Abstract: RESUMO.-[Fatores de risco e presença de anticorpos para Toxoplasma gondii em cães do litoral do Estado de São Paulo.] A toxoplasmose é causada por um protozoário parasita intracelular obrigatório, Toxoplasma gondii, e acomete vertebrados homeotérmicos incluindo animais de companhia e o homem. O cão apresenta importância epidemiológica por atuar como sentinela da infecção para o homem. O presente estudo objetivou determinar a ocorrência de anticorpos para T. gondii em 205 amostras de soro de cães do município d… Show more

“…In our study, dogs that ingested raw meat had 2.47 times the risk of infection than dogs that did not have access to raw meat. Similar results that also support this association were reported by Moura et al (2009) in Lages and Balneário Camboriú, SC, and by Silva et al (2010) in Ubatuba, SP. In Brazil, the habit of feeding leftovers to pets is wellestablished among dog owners, especially in cities where the countryside is close to urban areas, as is the case in Ibiúna.…”

“…For instance, a prevalence of 60.7% was found by Guimarães et al (2009) gondii can vary greatly, because transmission is associated with habits and cultural behaviors as well as socio-economic and health conditions. Habitat is also a factor, because it plays a fundamental role in the viability of the parasite (SILVA et al, 2010 Barbosa et al (2003) in Salvador, Bahia (BA), Langoni et al (2006) in Botucatu, SP, and Silva et al (2010) in Ubatuba, SP. Low titers are indicative of chronic or early phases of infection (CAMARGO, 1975), which may indicate that most examined dogs have been exposed to the parasite and have developed an immunological response by producing specific antibodies.…”

“…The titers of antibodies against T. gondii detected in these dogs suggest the chronic phase of infection. Although the owners described the dogs participating in this study as healthy, low morbidity in canine toxoplasmosis was previously verified (27) ; besides, asymptomatic cases are common in chronic infections (28) .…”

“…Esta queda no número de animais positivos no decorrer dos anos pode estar associada à popularização da ração animal e diminuição do hábito de oferecer vísceras e tecidos crus aos cães. Moura et al (11) e Silva et al (24) , ao avaliarem fatores de risco para a infecção por T. gondii, encontraram prevalências de 38,1% (45/118) e 74,2% (66/89), respectivamente, e constataram que a alimentação à base de dieta caseira é um fator predisponente para a infecção.…”
