A sudden death due to Paragonimus kellicotti infection in a dog that had had no previous clinical signs of illness until the day of admission to the veterinary hospital is documented. The clinical, haematological and biochemical abnormalities, as well as postmortem findings, are presented. This report represents the first case of canine paragonimiasis in Israel, and discusses the possibility of this fluke becoming established in the Middle East.
