Introduction. Enteritis infectious origin is a serious problem in almost all countries, dogs and cats, regardless of breed or age, are prone to this disease. To evaluate the surveillance warning system should be carried out epizootic monitoring.

Epizootic monitoring is a process control system epizootic contagious animal diseases in certain territory and control of communicable diseases. Study of the problems of infectious diseases of animals is impossible without a systematic analysis of the epizootic situation.

The goalof the work. Find out nosological profile of infectious diseases of domestic carnivores in the city of Kyiv, determine the role of parvovirus enteritis of dogs and panleukopenia in cats morbidity structure and features of manifestation of parvovirus infection.

Materialsandmethodsof research.The biological material (blood serum, whole blood, feces, scraping from mucosal rectal swabs from the nose and conjunctiva) were obtained from animals in veterinary clinics Kiev.

Laboratory tests carried out on the basis of «BioSoft» Laboratory during 2015. diagnostic methods used to study the biological material (IFA) and PCR (Real-time).

Resultsof researchand discussionn.During 2015, the laboratory «BioSoft» conducted laboratory studies of biological material from domestic dogs and cats, who on the basis of clinical symptoms suspected certain infectious diseases. Studied a sample of biological material from the 545 animals, of which 91 in the sample is taken from dogs and 454 – from cats.

Established nosological profile infectious disease of domestic dogs and cats in the city of Kyiv demonstrates the need for constant monitoring of their distribution to the study of basic features of the manifestation of them, including parvovirus infection.

Conclusions andprospects for further research:

  1. Investigated nosological profile of infectious diseases of dogs and cats in the city of Kiev. Established percentage of parvovirus infection in infectious diseases of dogs and cats, for dogs that was – 7.0%, and for cats – 13.2%, which is evidence of the spread of diseases among domestic carnivores.
  2. In the study of patients age pattern of parvovirus infection of domestic dogs and cats found that mostly young sick for six months.
  3. In connection with a wide variety of infectious diseases nosological units in dogs (canine distemper, infectious hepatitis, parvovirus enteritis, adenovirus, rabies, leptospirosis and others.) Cats (coronavirus infection, panleukopenia, chlamydia, mycoplasmosis and others.), the need to develop the system of preventive measures based on the results of monitoring of epizootic infectious diseases.
