Priyanka Mahadappa, Sahadeb Dey.

Abstract
The present study was conducted with the objectives of studying the oxidative/nitrosative and trace element alterations in naturally Toxocara canis infected dogs before and after treatment with albendazole and to explore the effect of albendazole treatment on oxidative/nitrosative status in healthy dogs. Six naturally infected dogs with T.canis were selected for the present study. These cases were treated with albendazole @ 25 mg/kg orally for 3 consecutive days and monitored weekly up to 28 days of post treatment. Six apparently healthy dogs acted as healthy control and were also treated with albendazole @ 25 mg/kg orally. A highly significant increase in NO (p< 0.01) and LPO (p
