    A one-year-old female Shetland Sheepdog was presented with chronic cough. The patient exhibited tachypnea and moist cough, bronchoscopic examination revealed a hyperaemic trachea and mucopurulent exudate affecting the lower bronchi. Nematode parasites were observed during bronchoscopy and were collected by bronchoalveolar lavage. Microscopic examination of the collected fluid confirmed C. vulpis infection; L1 larvae were found in during coproscopy. Although other cases of canine C. vulpis infection have been previously recorded in Europe, the case reported herein is the first in a dog from Czech Republic.
