Abstract

Hard ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) attached to dogs and cats were collected in animal hospitals and clinics of six Hungarian cities. At the same time a questionnaire was completed by participating veterinary surgeons. The species of 184 specimens collected from 100 dogs and 9 cats were identified. Majority of the ticks were partly engorged females. The percentage of adults, nymphs and larvae were 83.7, 15.8 and 0.5, respectively. Most host animals carried only a single specimen of one species attached to their heads or necks. Four species were identified of which Ixodes ricinus Linné was the most common (58%) on dogs as well as on cats. Dermacentor reticulatus (syn. D. pictus) Fabricius was found to be the second most common (38%), which was collected only from dogs. A specimen of D. marginatus Sulzer was identified, collected from a dog. I. hexagonus Leach infested one dog and one cat. Two dogs carried some specimens of more than one tick species (I. ricinus and D. reticulatus). Based on the results of the study it can be stated that D. reticulatus occurs in more geographical regions of Hungary than it had been thought earlier. Significant association was found between the presence of clinical signs of canine babesiosis and the infestation of these animals with D. reticulatus.
