Abstract: Despite the ubiquity of domestic dogs, their role as zoonotic reservoirs and the large number of studies concerning parasites in urban dogs, rural areas in Brazil, especially those at the wildlife-domestic animal-human interface, have received little attention from scientists and public health managers. This paper reports a cross-sectional epidemiological survey of gastrointestinal parasites of rural dogs living in farms around Atlantic Forest fragments. Through standard parasitological methods (flotation and … Show more

“…Although there is controversy regarding the sharing of parasitic infections between healthy domestic animals and humans, patients with severe immunodeficiency and malnourished children may be affected by opportunistic parasitic diseases, such as those caused by Cryptosporidium spp. (Curi et al, 2016;Bowman and Lucio-Forster, 2010). Even though there have been studies defining giardiasis as a zoonosis (Feng and Xiao, 2011), the genotype and subtype level division has reduced scientific acceptance of zoonotic transmission likelihood.…”

“…infection, contact with dogs and soil were the most frequent. Contact with dogs has been a widely demonstrated factor in epidemiological studies of toxocariasis and enteroparasitic infections (Macpherson, 2013;Cassenote et al, 2014;Santos et al, 2015, Curi et al, 2017Jeske et al, 2018). Although the day care was walled and fenced in, it is quite possible to contaminate the soil with parasites through animal feces from outside of the day care facility.…”
