Abstract:

The investigation of tick species in dogs was carried out in North Banat District (Vojvodina) between May 20th and August 10th 2014. It is common knowledge that ticks are vectors of many pathogens. The most dangerous ones for dogs are species of the following genera: Dermacentor, Ixodes and Rhipicephalus, which are widespread in the northern region of Serbia. These species may carry and transmit, among others, Babesia canis, Ehrlichia canis and Borrelia burgdorferi. In this research 118 dogs were examined for ticks and 50 were found to be infested. These ectoparasites were removed from hosts and determined as Ixodes ricinus, Rhipicephalus sanguineus and Dermacentor reticulatus. Some of the dogs had developed different symptomes such as: fever, anaemia, anorexia and icterus.
