Canine demodicosis is a frequent and often serious skin disease appearing in two clinical forms: localized and generalized infection. A diagnosis of demodicosis is made according to clinical signs, deep skin scrapings, examination of plucked hairs and sometimes acetate-tape impressions; molecular diagnostic tools are also available. Unlike feline Demodex, we are unaware of published studies documenting fecal examination as a diagnostic tool for canine demodicosis. The aim of our study was to compare the results of skin scrapings and fecal examination for the diagnosis of canine demodicosis.
