Today's Daily Dose: Baylisascaris procyonis

VETERINARY MEDICINE

Untitled Document

“There is good news on the treatment and control front concerning Baylisascaris procyonis infection. The common broad-spectrum anthelmintics used to treat Toxocara species infection in dogs (e.g. pyrantel pamoate, fenbendazole, piperazine) will also eliminate Baylisascaris species. In addition, monthly heartworm preventives that eliminate intestinal nematodes, such as Toxocara species, (e.g. milbemycin oxime, ivermectin-pyrantel pamoate) will also eliminate intestinal B. procyonis infections in dogs on the chance they become infected.”
