An adult female hairworm was vomited from a domestic dog with a cough in Hiroshima Prefecture. The worm body was long and slender, measuring 42.5 cm in length and 1 mm in maximum width. The specimen showed microscopically the smooth cuticular without tuberculations. This case is the first record of Gordius sp. infection in a dog in Japan.
