The effect of haloxon on the migrating larvae of Toxocara canis in gerbils
Toxocara canis (Werner, 1782) is the most common nematode parasite of dogs. In parts of the United States 21% of all dogs are infected with this intestinal roundworm (Ehrenford, 1957). In Provo, Utah, where 97 adult dogs were examined, 17. 5% harbored T. canis adults (Fox, personal communication).
