Companion Animal Parasite Control.

After ingestion, the eggs hatch and larvae penetrate the intestinal wall and are carried by the circulation to a wide variety of tissues liver, heart, lungs, brain, muscle, eyes. The second molt takes place in the lungs, the now L 3 larvae return via the trachea and into the intestines, where the final two molts take place. For both VLM and OLM, a presumptive diagnosis rests on clinical signs, history of exposure to puppies, laboratory findings including eosinophiliaand the detection of antibodies to Toxocara.

Diagnosis is usually made by serology or the finding of larvae in biopsy or autopsy specimens. Image Gallery Toxocara sp. Toxocara seroprevalence in children from a subtropical city in Argentina.
