Single fecal examinations, using the zinc sulfate flotation technique, were performed on 4,217 animals (2,737 dogs and 1,480 cats) and 3,730 helminth infections were revealed. Of these animals, 685 dogs and 318 cats were treated and necropsied, thus uncovering 584 additional infections not found by flotation. About 55% of the additional infections were tapeworms, and the remaining 45% were nematodes, of which 22% were light infections, 17% were immature, and 6% consisted of male worms only.
