Abstract

The epizootic results, clinical and parasitological, of helminthological studies of pigeons, in Kharkov and its suburbs for the study of prevalence, seasonal dynamics and age related to ascariasis pigeons conducted during 2014-2015 are presented in the article. Laboratory research was conducted in parasitological service state of Kharkov State Academy Zoo-vet. The purpose and objective of research was to clarify some questions of epizootology (distribution, seasonal and age-related dynamics) of ascariasis in pigeons in Kharkov and its suburbs. The extension and intensity of the invasion were determined by the method coproscopic diagnostic laboratory called Fyulleborns. Ascarides amount of eggs Ascaridia columbae was counted under low magnification microscope in 20 fields of view. Dead pigeons were subjected to postmortem autopsy. Incomplete autopsy of pigeons using  method of K. I. Scriabin was carried out. Purpose of the study was to conduct helminthological research and to establish the type of agent by helmintoscopic method. The species of Nematode called Ascaridia columbae was determined using qualifier of K. I. Scriabin. Morphological features of Ascaridia columbae (mouth, suction cups, papillae, spicules and so on) were compared with literature data. As a result of studies wide spreading of ascariasis of pigeons in Kharkov (EI=21,3 %) and in its suburbs (EI=30,1 %) was established. Age-related dynamic of the disease was studied. It was indicated that young pigeons infected approximately in 2,5-3-month of age. It was established that eggs of Ascaridia columbae appear in fecal masses of young pigeons aged 3,5-4 months.
