Findings of scales, hyperpigmentation, and erythema are present almost throughout the body, along with crusts on the cranial and caudal extremities and a foul body odor. Wood's lamp examination revealed a yellowish-green fluorescence in the ear and ventral areas of the body. The skin tape examination revealed an infestation of <em>Demodex sp. </em>mites accompanied by <em>Malassezia sp. h</em>ematological analysis indicated that the dog presented anemia. The dog was diagnosed with demodicosis with a secondary infection of <em>Malassezia sp. </em>The therapy provided consisted of antiparasitic drugs such as imidacloprid and moxidectin (Advocate®); the long-acting antibiotic enrofloxacin was administered at a dose of 200 mg intramuscularly, along with the oral antibiotic amoxicillin and clavulanic acid at a dose of 31.25mg/kg BW every 12 hours. Additionally, oral antifungal medication ketoconazole was given at 25mg/kg BW every 12 hours, along with ketoconazole cream. Oral antihistamine mebhydroline napsylate was administered at 25mg/kg BW every 12 hours. Furthermore, multivitamins and hair vitamins were given at a dose of 2 ml once every 24 hours. After seven days of treatment, an evaluation was conducted, and it was observed that the dog's condition had improved, indicated by a reduction in the intensity of scratching.</p> 2023-09-24T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Parasite Science (JoPS) Intestinal Helminth Infections Among Domesticated Cats in Malate, Manila, Philippines 2023-09-14T20:50:41+07:00 Jan Michael Chan Mary Jane Flores Eligio Santiago Maghirang Helenar Chan <p style="font-weight: 400;">Intestinal helminthiasis is a public health issue in developing nations particularly those which have insufficient access to clean water, sanitary infrastructures, and lacks public health education. Due to the zoonotic potential of some intestinal helminths, cats, and other mammalian species with direct contact to humans may act as reservoir hosts and provide a medium for the transmission of zoonotic infections. This study aimed to determine the prevalence of intestinal helminths among domesticated cats in Malate, Manila, Philippines. A total of 25 cat stools were collected, processed using Formol-Ether Concentration Technique (FECT) and were microscopically examined. The overall prevalence of intestinal helminths was 76% (19/25)<em>.</em> The intestinal helminths identified include roundworms of phylum Nematoda: <em>Toxocara cati</em> (44%) and <em>Ascaris</em> spp. (20%),&nbsp; whipworm: <em>Trichuris </em>spp. (24%), and hookworm (12%)<em>.</em> All of the identified intestinal parasites have zoonotic potential and domestic cats are significant reservoirs of zoonotic intestinal parasites that can facilitate the transmission of infection to humans. Therefore, an innovative one-health approach strategy which includes constant monitoring and control of stray and feral cats, access to potable&nbsp;water, public health education, and more sanitary infrastructures, can help resolve intestinal helminthiasis crisis in the Philippines.</p> 2023-09-24T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Parasite Science (JoPS) Prevalence and Infestation of Ectoparasite in Dabung Ducks in Some Districts in Bangkalan Madura 2023-09-15T09:48:51+07:00 Ramadhiniyanti Putri Alif Prawasa Nunuk Dyah Retno Lastuti Dadik Raharjo Poedji Hastutiek Endang Suprihati Dian Ayu Permatasari <p>Identify the type of ectoparasite prevalence and infestation pattern of ectoparasite on Dabung duck in Bangkalan Madura regency.

As pigeons are easy to keep and quickly reproduce. Improper hygene practices is&nbsp; a strong factor in helminthiasis transmission. This study aims to know the prevalence and degree of infection of helminthiasis in North Surabaya. 70 samples were taken from pigeon butchers in North Surabaya from September to November 2022. Dissection method was used for prevalence rate count and modified McMaster method was used to count degree of infection. The result shown that 70% of samples had positive worm infection. Types of worms found were <em>R. cesticillus</em> (55.7%), <em>Ascaridia </em>sp. (25.7%), <em>Capillaria </em>sp<em>.</em> (14.2%), <em>Echinostoma </em>sp. (2.8%) and <em>Heterakis</em> sp. (1.4%). Qualitative exam shown helminthiasis was more prevalent in adult pigeon than in squab, but analysis with <em>Chi-square</em> test shown no significant association between helminthiasis infection and age of the pigeons (P&gt;0.05). Quantitative exam with McMaster method shown degree of infection of single <em>Ascaridia</em> infection in adult pigeons is 340 EPG while in <em>Capillaria sp.</em> is 287.5 EPG and 150 EPG in <em>Heterakis</em>. All of them are considered mild infection. Thus, proper loft and feed hygene method should be informed to prevent more transmission.</p> 2023-09-24T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Parasite Science (JoPS) Stray Cat Gastrointestinal Protozoa Prevalence and Infection Degree in Madiun Public Health Center and Traditional Market 2023-09-15T10:30:53+07:00 Hayuning Nurrodhiya Djoko Legowo Endang Suprihati Poedji Hastutiek Mufasirin Dadik Rahardjo <p>This study determine the prevalence and protozoa infection degree of gastrointestinal in stray cats at Public Health Center and Traditional Market of Madiun City. 80 fecal sample collected.

Each sample was washed with tap water, water washing examined using flotation method to find soil-transmitted helminths. The overall prevalence of soil-transmitted helminths contamination was 41% (41/100). The most predominant parasite was hookworms (20%), followed by Strongyloides stercoralis larvae (14%) and Ascaris lumbricoides eggs (7%). The highest prevalence of contamination was found in lettuce, with a prevalence rate of 56% (14/25), while the lowest prevalence of contamination was found in yardlong bean, with a prevalence rate of 24% (6/25). Sequentially, the prevalence of soil-transmitted helminths contamination of fresh vegetable samples from Pabean traditional market (55%), Keputran traditional market (50%), Wonokromo traditional market (50%), Lakarsantri traditional market (35%) and Mulyosari traditional market (15%), respectively. The present study demonstrated that consumption of vegetables with parasite contamination in this area represents a potential route for the transmission of soil-transmitted helminths infection.&nbsp;</p> 2023-09-24T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of Parasite Science (JoPS)
