Abstract One hundred and five stray male and female dogs in different age groups were autopsied and their small intestines examined for Echinococcus granulosus. Thirty eight dogs (36.19\%) harbored two-to-several thousand E. granulosus in their intestinal content. The prevalence rate was higher in males (44.83\%) than in females (25.53\%). Livers and lungs of 3245 sheep, 2576 goats, 756 cattle and 25 buffaloes slaughtered for meat purposes at different Shiraz slaughterhouses were examined for hydatidosis: 2.09\% of livers and 2.68\% of lungs of sheep, 2.17\% and 2.36\% of goats, 4.49\% and 6.48\% of cattle and 4\% and 8\% of buffaloes, respectively, were infected.
