, : Further observations on canine spirocercosis in Kenya. Veterinary Record 99(18): 348-351

In a 10-year period, 39 clinical cases were presented, and of 1607 dogs examined PM, 206 had lesions. Most animals were from good homes: 45% were German Shepherds, 23% Labradors, 14% Boxers and 10% Dachshunds.
