Abstract

Feline lungworms and heartworms are recently stimulating the interest of the Scientific Community due to their clinical impact and apparent geographical expansion. Diagnosis of the infections caused by these nematodes is indeed challenging. This reports describes a novel multiplex-PCR able to identify simultaneously major lungworms and heartworms affecting cats. Epidemiological and clinical perspectives are discussed.
