Abstract

The cat flea (Ctenocephalides felis) is the most common parasite of domestic cats and dogs worldwide. Due to the morphological ambiguity of C. felis and a lack of - particularly largescale - phylogenetic data, we do not know whether global C. felis populations are morphologically and genetically...

Abstract

Ctenocephalides felis (Bouché, 1835) and Ctenocephalides canis (Curtis, 1826) are the most important flea parasites of dogs and cats throughout the world; they themselves affect the host and act as vectors of diseases. The main aim of the present study was to assess the prevalence of ...

Abstract

Fleas of the genus Ctenocephalides are the most common ectoparasites infesting dogs and cats world-wide. The species Ctenocephalides felis and Ctenocephalides canis are competent vectors for zoonotic pathogens such as Rickettsia felis and Bartonella spp. Improved knowledge on the diversity and...

Abstract

In the present work, we report for the first time the presence of an emerging rickettsial agent in Mexico, Rickettsia asembonensis, recorded in the cat flea (Ctenocephalides felis felis) collected in dogs from the states of Morelos and Veracruz. Possible implications for public health and its...

Abstract

Purpose: Fleas are insects with a high medical and veterinary importance. They may participate in spreading of many pathogenic agents, but still there is limited information about their possible reservoir or vector role for protozoans. The main aim of this study was an attempt of detection zoonotic ...

Abstract

Rickettsia felis is an obligate intracellular alpha-proteobacteria and the cause of flea-borne spotted fever (FBSF), an emerging zoonosis of global public health importance, for which dogs and cats have been implicated as potential mammalian reservoirs hosts. The purpose of this study was to...

Abstract

Background: Vector-borne pathogens are the subject of several investigations due to the zoonotic concern of some of them. However, limited data are available about the simultaneous presence of these pathogens in cats and their ectoparasites. The aim of the present study was to define the species of ...

Abstract

In a sanctuary located on the island of Malta, 23 clinically healthy cats randomly selected were sampled for blood and fleas. Only fleas were collected from 35 cats. All fleas were identified as Ctenocephalides felis, except for one specimen of Ctenocephalides canis. To the best of the authors'...

Abstract

Two studies were performed to determine the 24-hour efficacy of FRONTLINE® Plus (fipronil/(S)-methoprene) against the Tampa 2014 isolate of Ctenocephalides felis fleas. This isolate of fleas was collected during a field study where there was a perceived lack of efficacy of FRONTLINE Plus for Dogs...
