ABSTRACT
A wide range of parasites particularly helminths, arthropods and protozoans affect dogs but when it comes to intestinal coccidians, their number is scanty.  Eimeria canis is perhaps the most under reported parasite of dogs. The present paper deals with the prevalence of E.canis in dogs with no possible history of deworming from Mathura region, India.  Finally, the morphology of the parasite, present scenario, reasons for under reporting vis-à-vis future projections are being described.
