In recent years, the impact that foodborne parasites exert on food safety, food security, quality of life and livelihoods has begun to receive well-deserved global attention. Echinococcosis, an important zoonotic parasitic disease caused by metacestode of Echinococcus granulosus, tapeworm of dog. It is an important disease as it causes condemnation of affected visceral organs of domestic animals. In human being it is of zoonotic importance. A year-round study from 2020-21 was conducted in dogs of Navania, Udaipur to assess the zoonotic potential. The results of faecal sample examination revealed the presence of eggs of parasites and regular monitoring of the health and treatment was done in dogs to control the disease occurrence.
