Resumen

JOHN-BORRALLO, Henry Lázaro; ENTRENA-GARCIA, Angel; MIRANDA-CABRERA, Ileana  y  VEGA-CANIZARES, Ernesto. Prevalence of Ancylostoma caninum in Canis lupus familiaris in Havana, Cuba. Rev Salud Anim. [online]. 2019, vol.41, n.1, e08.  Epub 01-Abr-2019. ISSN 0253-570X.

With the aim of determining the prevalence of Ancylostoma caninum in dogs from eight municipalities of Havana province, a coproparasitoscopic analysis and a haematological study (total leukocytes and blood differential test) were carried out in 299 dogs. Data related to age, sex and previous treatment with antiparasitics were obtained. The results of the blood differential test and the eosinophil count were compared according to sex, age group (adults and puppies) and place of origin (municipalities). In the blood differential test, the eosinophil count showed a significant difference (p≤0.05) between the place of origin (municipalities) and the age of the animals. The coprological results showed 49.2 % prevalence of Ancylostoma caninum, without showing significant difference (p≤0.05) when comparing the municipality of origin, age and sex. There was a concordance of 93.3 % and Kappa index of 0.87 was found between the presence of eosinophilia and positive cases of Ancylostoma caninum by coprology.

Palabras clave : Ancylostoma caninum; coprology; eosinophilia; prevalence.
