A natural case of chronic amebic infection in a Baltimore dog, in whose dejecta cysts were found, is recorded. From the evidence, it seems strongly probable that the organism involved was Endamoeba histolytica, and that the dog may be in nature an occasional carrier of this parasite constituting, in this condition a reservoir of amebiasis for man and dogs.
