Abstract: 犬糸状虫の感染と犬の飼育環境や飼い主の予防の実施の有無との関連性の手がかりをつかむため,1989年と1993年に長崎市の南部の戸町地区と北部の坂本,高尾,山里の3地区の320名または397名の飼い主を対象に犬の飼育環境と予防の実態についてアンケート調査を実施した.1989年と1993年の回収率はそれぞれ65.9%または55.9%であった.感染率の低い北部3 地区では家の中で犬を飼うと答えた人が多かった.感染率の高い南部の1地区では庭で犬を飼う人が多かった.このことから南部の犬は北部の犬に比べて主要伝搬蚊であるアカイエカに刺される機会が多くなることが推測される.予防措置としてはどの地区でも蚊取り線香が高頻度に使われていることがわかった.予防薬を投与している飼い主は一般に少なかった. / To examine the role of living environments of domestic dogs and the measures taken by dogs owners to protect their dogs in the prevention of Dirofilaria immitis infection, we carried out a questionnaire survey in Tomachi (from the southern part of Nagasaki City) and Sakamoto, Takao and Yamazato (from the northern part of the same city) in 1989 (for 320 dog owners) and 1993 (for 397 owners). The percentage of dog owners who answered to the questionnaire was 65.9% in 1989 and 55.9% in 1993. In the northern 3 districts where positive rates the percentage of larvae-carrying dogs were low, dogs were often kept indoors. In the southern district (Tomachi) where the positive rate was high, dogs were often kept outdoors (in the yard). The high percentage of dogs kept outdoors in Tomachi seems to have increased the exposure of dogs to main vector mosquito, Cx. p. pallens. In all districts, mosquito-repellent coils were most frequently used as a means to control mosquitoes. The percentage of dog owners who used preventive drugs tended to be low.
