In first part of this study, 250 dogs in Pakistan were examined for the presence of ancylostomiasis [date not given]. Faecal examination confirmed ancylostomiasis in 67 (26.8%) dogs. A higher prevalence was noticed in puppies than in adults. In 8 controlled experiments, 48 dogs were used to compare the efficacy of Nigella sativa seeds, Saussurea lappa roots and pyrantel pamoate against Ancylostoma spp. Efficacy was quantified by determining the difference of eggs per gram of faeces (EPG) during pre- and posttreatment. It was shown that N. sativa seeds, after a single dose of 250, 300 and 500 mg/kg body weight, reduced EPG by 62.9, 80.9 and 89.6%, respectively. S. lappa roots at of 200, 250 and 300 mg/kg body weight was 40.5, 66.5 and 79.9% effective against Ancylostoma, respectively, while pyrantel pamoate at 10 mg/kg body weight was 100% effective. The efficacy order was pyrantel pamoate>N. sativa>S. lappa. No side effects were caused by any of the drugs of plant origin.
