From April 2008 through May 2009, ticks were collected from domestic, stray, and military working dogs when they were examined at any of the four US Army veterinary treatment facilities within the Republic of Korea. Approximately 2,500 dogs were examined during this period, and a total of 411 ticks (125 larvae, 200 nymphs, 67 females, 19 males) were collected from 18 dogs. The collected species were Haemaphysalis longicornis (6F, 195N), Haemaphysalis flava (19M, 52F), Ixodes nipponensis (7F), and Rhipicephalus sanguineus (2F). Five nymphs and all larvae were identified to genus only. Military working dogs received routine veterinary care, including preventive ectoparasite treatments, and were found to be free of ticks.
