Abstract In July 2008 a survey of ectoparasites on domestic animals was conducted in the Royal Thai Army areas of operation along the Thai-Myanmar Border, Tak Province, Thailand. Eleven different ectoparasites were collected: two species of hard ticks (Ixodidae), three species of fleas (Siphonaptera) and 6 species of sucking or chewing lice (2 species each in the suborders Anoplura, Ischnocera and Amblycera) were collected. Domestic dogs (Canis lupusfamiliaris) (n = 94) were found infested with 2 species of flea Ctenocephalides felis orientis (86.2\%) and Echidnophaga gallinacea (1.1\%), one species of tick, Rhipicephalus sanguineus (21.3\%), and one louse species, Heterodoxus spiniger (7.4\%). Domestic cats (Felis catus) (n = 6) were found infested with only flea species, Ctenocephalides felis felis (100\%) and E. gallinacea (33.3\%). Cattle (Bos indicus) (n = 11) had Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus (72.7\%), Linognathus vituli (27.3\%), and Solenopotes capillatus (9.1\%) present, while chickens (Gallus domesticus) (n = 10) had infestations with E. gallinacea (20\%), and 3 lice species, Lipeurus caponis (10\%), Goniodes dissimilis (10\%) and Menopon gallinae (60\%). This is believed to be the first report of S. capillatus collected in Thailand.
