Dirofilaria immitis infection in wild raccoon dogs, Nyctereutes procyonoides



Abstract
The raccoon dog (Nyctereutes procynoides) may be infected by Dirofilaria immitis. However, there has been no report on dirofilarial infection in the raccoon dog in Korea. In this study, we report on D. immitis infection in two wild raccoon dogs captured in the Daejeon area. The two raccoon dongs were referred to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital, Chungnam National University for diagnosis of D. immitis infection. The modified Knott´s test for the detection of blood D. immitis microfilariae was positive, and serological test (FASTest^ⓡkit, Diagnostica MERCK, Germany). The two raccoon dogs were necropsed and D. immitis infection was confirmed.
