Mashael A. Aldamigh, Amaal H. Hassan, Ahlam A. Alahmadi
It has been reported that parasite infection can significantly harm domestic pigeons. In this study, we wanted to assess the histopathological changes caused by helminth infection. A total of thirty-five domestic pigeons (C. l. domestica) purchased from Al-Qassim region in Saudi Arabia were included in this study. Among those, nine pigeons (25.71%) were infected with helminth parasites of a cestode (Raillietina species) and a nematode (Ascaridia columbae). It was observed th...

A study on the prevalence of canine babesiosis was carried out at Jos south Local Government Area of Plateau State, Nigeria, between May and June 2019. Giemsa stained blood smears of 150 dogs revealed that 20 (13.33%) of the dogs were positive with Babesia canis. Among these, 63 (42.00%) were puppies aged less than 6 months, and 87 (58.00%) are adult dogs aged 9 months and above infected by the parasite. However, the age is found significantly correlated with Babesia canis as all the positives a...

Elsayed E. Elowni, Mohamed F. Ahmad, Ghada H. Abdelnabi, Reem M. Badawi
Cystic echinococcosis (hydatidosis) is a serious zoonotic parasitic disease of global public health and economic importance. It is caused by infection with hydatid cysts, the larva of a tapeworm of canines, particularly dogs. The canine hosts become infected with the adult parasite when they ingest with viscera fertile hydatid cysts containing protoscolices (PSCs). Generally, the mere presence of PSCs in a hydatid cyst has been considered an indication of infectivity to the host. There is no tan...

Visceral leishmaniasis is caused by parasites of the genus Leishmania. Prevalent in developing countries, the disease is on the list of the world’s most neglected diseases. Most cases (90%) in Latin America occur in Brazil, especially in the Northeast. The condition is treated mainly with pentavalent antimonials, an expensive and relatively inefficient drug known to induce resistance. In search of new antileishm
