Abstract
The study was conducted during May to September, 1984 to record the prevalence of Toxocariasis in dogs in Lahore and to assess the comparative efficacy of locally available anthelmintics namely Levamisole (Ketrax), Mebendazole (Vermox) and Pyrantel Pamoate (Combantrin). The incidence in stray and pet dogs was 51.1 and 31.2 per cent respectively. The result indicated that all the three drugs were effective against Toxocariasis, however, Ketrax was found to be the most effective.
