dc.description.abstract Dracunculiasis was largely considered a parasitic disease exclusively affecting humans. That is why all the control measures taken, aimed at its global eradication, were exclusively applied to humans. Currently, Guinea worm disease is considered a zoonosis, with dogs being the main reservoir, reaching high rates of infection, thus jeopardizing its eradication. An alternative route of foodborne parasite transmission has been suggested for dogs by means of the ingestion of infected frogs and/or fish. In addition, a recent study carried out in dogs to assess their ability to ingest copepods while drinking has cast doubts on the key role of drinking water in the dracunculiasis epidemiology. As a result, both routes of transmission, waterborne and foodborne, are discussed.
