Аннотация: An epidemiological survey was conducted on the prevalence and risk factors associated with intestinal parasites of African Painted dog in Hwange National Park between June 2016 and July 2017. Centrifugal flotation and McMaster techniques were employed to obtain comprehensive data on the prevalence and diversity of gastrointestinal parasites observed in faecal samples collected from painted dogs. A total of 58 painted dogs were surveyed. Out of these, all were infected with at least one intestinal parasite and 10 parasite genera of gastrointestinal i.e. Alaria, Physolaptera, Isospora, Spirocerca, Dipylidium, Uncinaria, Toxoscaris, Toxocara, Taenia, Ancylostoma and Sarcocystis spp were recorded. Two parasites (Physolaptera and Spirocerca) have been reported for the first time in this study. Sarcocystis had the highest prevalence (28.2%) and intensity (629.18±113.01), while the lowest prevalence was for Physolaptera and Alaria spp (0.6% prevalence and 50± 0 intensity). Level of parasitism was statistically significant across all parasites species (F=0.036; p<0.05).
