dc.description.abstractPrevalence of canine filariasis was determined in 2101 dogs surveyed between February 1976 and February 1977 in southwestern Ohio. Prevalence of D. immitis was 1.9% while no D. reconditum were found. Dogs from veterinary clinics had a prevalence of 1.2% (n=1679), while a 4.5% (n = 422) prevalence was reported from animal shelter dogs. A significantly higher prevalence was reported in male dogs, dogs with short hair, and those that were kept out-of-doors most of the time. The incidence of infection in those dogs who had been reported out-of-Ohio within the year prior to checking was 3.5% as compared to 3.2% in dogs that had not been out of Ohio. Thus, D. immitis infection is endemic in the area.en_US
