Onchocerca lupi Nematodes in Dogs Exported from the United States into Canada

, : Onchocerca lupi Nematodes in Dogs Exported from the United States into Canada. Emerging Infectious Diseases 22(8): 1477-1479

The Onchocerca lupi nematode is an emerging helminth capable of infecting pets and humans. We detected this parasite in 2 dogs that were imported into Canada from the southwestern United States, a region to which this nematode is endemic. We discuss risk for establishment of O. lupi in Canada.
