The aim of the research was to conduct an in-depth analysis of the investigation of chlamydial infections occurred in cats and dogs in Kyiv during the last 10 years. The article includes three main directions of investigation: 1) The analysis of the epizootic situation with chlamydiosis; 2) Microbiological investigation and 3) Serological monitoring. The clinical and epizootiological studies of chlamydiosis of dogs and cats have been looked into, with the focus on differences and similarities in age and sex of diseased animals. We have investigated 3334 animals (1351 dogs and 1983 cats), including 721 animals (107 dogs and 614 cats) with the manifestation of clinical signs specific to chlamydia. During the investigation 11 isolates of Chlamydia spp. were obtained from the infected animals. Additionally, immune and biological peculiarities have been analyzed. Due to serological monitoring within the epizootiological uncontrolled experiment, a satisfactory level of protection of cats (63%) vaccinated against chlamydiosis has been reached, as well as the possibility of the persistence of the pathogen in unvaccinated animals (9%).
