Abstract Of 67 dogs examined in 11 localities in Arbil Province, northern Iraq, 53 (79.1\%) were found infected with Echinococcus granulosus. The infection rates in the 11 localities ranged from 66.7\% to 100\%. Infections were light (1-200 worms) in 37.7\% of infected dogs, medium (201-1,000 worms) in 20.8\% and heavy (over 1,000 worms) in 41.5\%. The heaviest burden was detected in 13 dogs, in which 3,000 to 8,000 worms each were counted. Infection rates were slightly higher in male dogs (81.1\%) than in bitches (76.7\%).
