Observations were made on the infection rate of common internal parasites in dogs in Kwangju area from January to March, 1982. Dog's stools were collected from veterinary hospitals, houses, intensive dog-rearing places and sidewalks. On the basis of egg counting, the following results were obtained; 1. Of 464 fecal samples, 73.5% were appeared as positive. 2. Dogs from veterinary hospitals and intensive dog-rearing places have higher infection rates than others. 3. Of the parasites detected, Toxocara canis was the most commonly encountered (23.7%). 4. Ascarids, flukes and coccidia were more prevalent in pups than in mature dogs, whereas bookworms were detected less often in young dogs than in older ones. 5. There were significant (p<0.01) differences among age categories for all parasites except tapeworms.
