Stray dogs and cats as potential sources of soil contamination with zoonotic parasites

Abstract: Szwabe K, Błaszkowska J. Stray dogs and cats as potential sources of soil contamination with zoonotic parasites. Ann Agric Environ Med. 2017; 24(1): 39-43. doi: 10.5604/12321966.1234003 Abstract Introduction and objective. The main source of many zoonoses is soil contaminated with feline and canine faeces. Thus, the aim of this study was to estimate the prevalence of intestinal parasites in stray dogs and cats adopted in Lodz shelter (Poland). Materials and methods. In total, 163 faecal samples were collec… Show more

“…Trichuris vulpis is also often found in dogs. For example, in some recent surveys it has been found in 8.4 and 10% of dogs in Poland and Slovak Republic, respectively ( 20 , 30 ) and in 6.4% in Kennel dogs of Northern Belgium ( 31 ). This parasite produces particularly environment resistant eggs, has a direct life cycle and can cause severe colitis, with lesions like thickening, ulceration, and necrosis of the intestinal mucosa, severe anaemia, dehydration, and even death of the animal ( 32 ).…”

“…Cystoisosporosis is more common in shelters as it has been previously reported [ 66 ]. The overall prevalence of these protozoans in stray or feral cats in selected studies conducted in Europe was from 11.8% in Poland [ 67 ] and 19.3% in the Netherlands [ 68 ] up to 46.3% in Portugal [ 30 ]. Due to the parasite's mode of transmission, clinical coccidiosis can be a pervasive problem in shelter environments, presumably due to crowded conditions with poor sanitation and hygiene.…”

“…30 state the constant risk of human contact with factors causing both diseases. 1,3,4,8,14,18,30,31,38,53 Despite difficulties in diagnosing toxoplasmosis and toxocarosis in humans sanitary services, without keeping records of these diseases and without knowing local threats, cannot take preventive action. 43,58,80-84. Authors of scientific publications advocate conducting a broad education of the population on risks of these diseases.…”
