1. What is it?
Strobilocercus (cysticercus, bladder worm). Larval stage of Taenia taeniaformis, a cyclophyllidean tapeworm
This parasite was recovered from a routine fecal flotation of a fecal sample taken from an 8-month-old cat during a routine health maintenance exam. This egg measures ~ 60 microns. Identify to genus.
What major group of parasites does it represent? (Be specific)
These parasites were recovered in a ZNSO4 Flotation (sp gr 1.18) in feces of apuppy. The pups are housed in a kennel. The owner says some of the puppies have been having intermittent, mucoid, blood-flecked diarrhea.

Identify this parasites found in a fecal flotation of a cat experiencing CNS symptoms. The ova/oocyst measures 10 – 12 microns. The stool was recovered from the cat’s litterbox and may thus not be fresh.
What is the best flotation media to recover Toxoplasma oocysts from a fecal?
b. Regular sugar (sp gr 1.21)
c. Sheather’s Sugar(sp gr 1.31)
d. ZnSO4 (spg 1.18)
Sheather’s Sugar. ( spin down method, remove coverslip put on a slide and allow to sit for an additional 10 minutes)
Identify this worm recovered from the small intestines of a cat at necropsy. Identify to genus.

Identify to genus.
What stage is this ?
1st stage larva
What is it?

These parasites were found in a fecal flotation of a sample taken from a 3-week-old puppy acquired from a local pet shop.
Identify to genus and species.
Measure 30 + microns
The egg, worm, and larval stage seen here is representative of which parasite? It was found in the small intestines of a dog at necropsy. Identify to genus.
What type of intermediate host would you find the larval stage?
What is this larval stage?
This tapeworm was recovered from the small intestines of a cat at necropsy. Identify to genus.
Worms like these were found attached to the stomach mucosa of a cat at necropsy. Identify to genus. What superfamily does this worm represent?
Male posterior end
Identify these worms found fecal washes of the small intestines of a dog at necropsy.
Both of these eggs were recovered from a fecal flotation of puppy. Which egg, when larvated, can cause “ocular larval migrans”? Which egg when it becomes a 3rd stage larvae could cause “cutaneous larval migrans”.
Identify each egg to genus.
80 – 90 microns
56 – 65 microns
Ancylostoma braziliense (egg on right)
Cutaneous larval migrans
(cannot differentiate from A. caninum on the basis of size; Uncinaria is 10u larger)
What parasite caused the wart-like lesions seen here at the tracheal bifurcation of a dog?
Is the 1st stage larva shown here consistent with the diagnostic stage passed in the feces of the above parasite?
This egg was recovered from the fecal of a cat presented to you with coughing episodes? Identify to genus.
90 – 120 microns
Which 1st stage larva, passed in a fecal sample from a cat is consistent with that of Aelurostrongylus ( cat lungworm) ?
These worms were recovered from the cecum of dog at necropsy. Identify to genus.
This test recovers microfilaria from whole blood. It kills and straightens microfilaria and lyses the RBC’s, therefore making it easier to differentiate Dirofilaria vs. Dipetalonema
What additional tests would be useful for suspected feline heartworms?
Feline: Antibody to Dirofilaria immitis
Identify this ova found in a dog presented to you with respiratory problems.
59 - - 60 microns
These organisms were found in a blood smear of a dog presented to you with severe anemia.
