Abstract: The paper presents the results of an epizootiological study of pig cryptosporidiosis in the Northwestern region of the Russian Federation using the example of the Vologda Region. It has been established that cryptosporidiosis in pigs is accompanied by the signs of diarrhea, anorexia and dehydration; it inhibits and reduces body weight gain and causes the death of animals. Cryptosporidiosis has a pronounced seasonal dependence: the peaks are in autumn and spring. Sucker piglets are most susceptible to the infection during the first month of age, especially during the first two weeks of life. Often, Cryptosporidium infection occurs in association with other parasitic intestinal protozoa.
