Worm-free cats about 12 weeks old were infected with 100, 500, 1,000, and 2,000 third-stage larvae (L3) ofAncylostoma tubaeforme. The changes in packed cell volume (PCV) and haemoglobin content were monitored, and the worm populations developing in each infection recorded. Cats receiving infection doses of 1,000 L3 and above showed morbidity symptoms by the third week and a rapid decline especially in the PCV value. The low dose rates (500 L3 and below) produced an apparently symptomless… CONTINUE READING
