The serum of 66 dogs with intestinal parasites (showing gastrointestinal problems caused by taeniosis, coccidiosis, ancylostomosis, trichuriosis and ascarididosis) was examined by electrophoresis. There were 6 dogs with coccidiosis, 6 dogs with ancylostomosis, 6 dogs with trichuriosis. 24 dogs with taeniosis and 24 dogs with ascarididosis. After agar gel protein electorphoresis of the serum samples, alpha 1 globulin levels were significantly lower in the coccidiosis group than in the other groups (p<0.05). While alpha 2 globulin levels increased in the ancylostomosis group (p<0.05), these levels decreased significantly in the dogs with ascarididosis (p<0.05). There was no change in beta and gamma globulin levels in any of the groups. While the protein level increased in the dogs with taeniosis (p<0.05), these levels were lower in the coccididosis group than in the other groups (p<0.05).
