Abstract

Sarcocystis fayeri infection was derected in 7 of 50 slaughtered horses from July to August in 1994. The cysts were 1, 000-5, 000 × 200-300μm in size, with the cyst wall 1 to 3μm thick. Bradyzoites were bananashaped and 15-17 × 4-4.5μm in size. Two adult dogs fed with S. fayeri-infected horse meat excreted sporulated sporocysts (11-13 × 7-9μm) and oocysts in the feces on day 12 or later after ingestion.
