Pavlovic I, Gavrilovic P, Antic V, Nedeljkovic N and Jezdimirovic N

Spirocerosis is a parasitic disease caused by the nematode Spirocerca lupi, which has often fatal outcome in dogs. The disease is rarely diagnosed due to nonspecific clinical signs and the lack of awareness of the presence of the agent among practitioners. The first case of spirocercosis in dogs in Serbia was recorded in Belgrade in 2014 and in the later period until 2019, eighteen more cases in the wider area of Belgrade were discovered.
