This study was conducted on gastrointestinal parasitic infestation in 1180 non-descript dogs in Nagpur using fecal examination during the months of January and February 2008 at SPCA center Nagpur, under an Animals Birth Control and anti Rabies Vaccnation programme run by the Nagpur Municipal Corporation. All the animals were divided into two groups adult and puppy, each comprises of 590 animals. Of the 590 animals in adults 391 (66.2%) were found to be infected with at least one species of intestinal parasites and in puppy group out of 590 animals 496 (84.06%) were positive for parasitic infestation. Toxocara canis and Anchylostoma caninum (hook worm) are predominant one followed by the other species of parasites like Dyphylidium caninum, Diphyllolobothrium latum and Fasciola hepatica are rarely found.
