Abstract:
The main goal in the current investigation was to test the effect of a commercial disinfectant, hydrogen peroxide 50% and dihydroxy benzol 100 ppm solution, on the vitality of Toxocara canis eggs aiming to avoid contamination in kennels and veterinarian clinics. The present study added a new advantage to the previously known disinfectant, moreover to the previous disinfection benefits of this mixture. It showed high inhibitory activity on vitality of unembryonated T. canis eggs which depended basically on the tested concentrations. The best effect was observed with 3% concentration after 24 h exposure, where the inhibitory activity was 99.73% and the egg development was arrested at two-cell stage. On the other hand, there were neither morphological changes nor any cessation of the motility of larvae in embryonated T. canis eggs, with all disinfectant concentrations. The present study supported the use of hydrogen peroxide 50% and dihydroxy benzol 100 ppm solution at 3% concentration as a disinfectant agent against T. canis eggs because of its ovicidal effect on unembryonated eggs.
