Outbred LACA mice were administered low (100 ova), medium (1000 ova), high (3000 ova) and trickle (4x250 ova) doses of Toxocara canis ova and the effect of infection was examined with respect to the number of larvae recovered from the brain and their behaviour. Recovery of larvae from the brain was generally low with the % recovery expressed in terms of the total dose administered being highest for the 3000 dose (6.1%) and 1000 dose (6%), followed by the 100 (4.4%) and trickle (3.5%) doses.
