A critical reflection on current control of Toxocara canis in household dogs
TLDR
A major finding was that a minority of ‘wormy animals’ was found to be responsible for the majority of the positive samples containing Toxocara eggs, and targeted treatment of these ‘wormsy dogs’ might be more efficient in reducing the household dogs” contribution to the environmental contamination with roundworm eggs than blind deworming of all household dogs.
[Toxocarosis in dogs - important aspects for the veterinary practice].
TLDR
Based on the zoonotic potential, information concerning the biology of the parasite and the necessity of anthelmintic treatment to effectively control T. canis in dogs should be provided for the pet owner to lead to better parasite control and decreased environmental contamination.
The hamster (Mesocricetus auratus) as an experimental model of toxocariasis: histopathological, immunohistochemical, and immunoelectron microscopic findings
TLDR
The hamster model displayed a progressive rise of anti-toxocaral antibodies with the formation of immune complexes and Lung and liver manifestations of toxocariasis in hamsters approximated those in humans and other experimental animal models.
Recurrent patent infections with Toxocara canis in household dogs older than six months: a prospective study
TLDR
Targeted anthelmintic treatments in household dogs may be feasible as PIs tend to (re)occur in specific periods and in groups of dogs at high risk.
Longitudinal study for anthelmintic efficacy against intestinal helminths in naturally exposed Lithuanian village dogs: critical analysis of feasibility and limitations
TLDR
A critical analyses of factors possibly responsible for intestinal passage of canine helminth eggs revealed that chained dogs excreted T. canis eggs more frequently 1 month after treatment compared to dogs in pens, particularly from November to March.
Effectiveness of Credelio® Plus, a novel chewable tablet containing milbemycin oxime and lotilaner for the treatment of larval and immature adult stages of Toxocara canis in experimentally infected dogs
TLDR
Two randomized, blinded, GCP-compliant, pivotal laboratory dose confirmation studies demonstrated that the Credelio Plus combination tablet administered orally to dogs was highly efficacious against experimental infections with L4 and immature adult [L5] Stage T. canis.

Repeated patent infection of adult dogs with Toxocara canis.
TLDR
The findings imply that adult dogs may not always be immune to toxocaral infection and may therefore contribute significantly to the problem of environmental contamination with T. canis ova.
Aspects of Toxocara epidemiology: toxocarosis in dogs and cats.
TLDR
It is concluded that education on the life cycles of the parasites, hygiene, and anthelmintic treatment schedules is required because of the zoonotic risks of Toxocara spp.

The effect of feeding different numbers of Toxocara canis eggs on patent intestinal infections was studied in 45 ascarid-naive 62--64-day-old pups and 6 adult dogs. Twenty-four of 25 pups fed 10 to
Observations on the development of Toxocara canis (Werner, 1782) in the dog.
TLDR
Differences in migratory behaviour are adaptations to prevailing modes of nutrition and it is suggested that the somatic migration occurring in dogs is an adaptation to the non-predatory habits of this particular host.
The effect of corticosteroid therapy on infection withToxocara canis in dogs
TLDR
The increased susceptibility to infection with T. canis in the dog treated with high doses of corticosteroids was associated with a decrease in in vitro lymphocyte responsiveness to the mitogens concanavalin A and pokeweed mitogen and with a complete suppression of the eosinophilia that was seen 10 days after infection in the untreated control dog.
Toxocara canis in experimentally infected silver and arctic foxes
TLDR
The larval migration from the lungs to other tissues appeared to be dose-dependent with the highest larval burdens found in adult foxes.
Immunological response of the hosts to Toxocara canis (Werner, 1782) infection. I. Effect of superinfection on naturally infected puppies.
TLDR
Superinfection of naturally infected puppies with large numbers of Toxocara canis eggs induced a self-cure reaction, and acquired resistance reduced the pathogenic effects of superinfection, and prevented development of the parasite beyond the second stage.

TLDR
It is found that an infection risk with potential zoonotic pathogens cannot be ruled out for the dog owner despite regular deworming four times a year.
Serological response of ascarid-free dogs to Toxocara canis infection.
TLDR
There was a significant negative correlation between the number of worms in the gut and granulomatous foci in the lung and the data suggest that the ELISA is sensitive and specific for Toxocara infection in dogs.
Toxocariasis: Clinical Aspects, Epidemiology, Medical Ecology, and Molecular Aspects
TLDR
Issues of ecology of transmission and control of spread to both humans and animals through public health initiatives employing treatment of pets and environmental intervention strategies that limit the areas that dogs and cats are allowed within the confines of urban centers are summarized.
