Among the large number of helminthic parasites harboured by dogs Toxocars canis, Ancylostoma caninum, Echinococcus are particularly important because of their public health significance. An investigation was carried out on pet dog population in and around Chandigarh to assess the prevalence of Toxocara canis. Stool samples of 208 dogs were examined of which 9.6% were positive for T. canis. The occurrence was greater in puppies. The other parasite population found in the stool specimens included Ancylostoma caninum (26.5%) Taenia Echinococcus (10.3%) and Trichuris sps (1.48%).
