Abstract:

Diarrheal diseases are a common problem in nearly all species of non-human primates. The treatment of diarrheal diseases in some of the less widely used non-human primates, such as orangutans, is difficult because of the lack of information as to possible etiologic agents. This paper tabulates identified enteric parasitic ova in three groups of orangutans living in their native habitat. This information will be useful to those laboratories attempting to treat parasitic diarrheal diseases in orangutans. Author
