Abstract:
A 3-month-old male Labrador retriever pup was presented to the Veterinary Clinical Complex, C.V.Sc. & A.H., and Jabalpur with a history of inappetence, vomition, foul-smelling bloody diarrhea with white-colored worms expelled in the faeces. Faecal sample examination confirmed the presence of brownish, spherical unembryonated eggs of Toxocara spp. The pup was effectively managed with Pyrantel pamoate @ 5 mg/kg body weight orally once daily for three consecutive days coupled with supportive therapy. An uneventful recovery occurred following 5 days of treatment.
