, : Visceral larva migrans: a risk assessment in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. International Journal of Zoonoses 11(2): 189-194

In a survey in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA, only 0.4% of soil samples from 20 city parks and playgrounds contained eggs of Toxocara canis, compared with 6.7% of samples from yards where dogs were kept as pets and 10% of samples from yards where dogs were not kept as pets. 40 (27.3%) of 146 owned dogs less than one year old and 4 (2%) of 192 owned dogs > one year old were infected, as were 11 (11.96%) of 92 stray dogs > one year.
