Blood samples were subjected to the modified Knott's concentration technique, the dire ct smear and the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay which was developed using the adult worm antigen . Information was obtained from private practitioners by the use of questionaires . The period prevalence of canine dirofilariasis was 42. 0 percent and 10.0 percent within the s t ray dog and owned dog populations respectively.
