Title: Recent developments in the control of cestode infection of dogs in Hungary
Year: 1968
Volume: 1
Pages: 149-154.

Abstract: The larvae of tapeworms parasitizing dogs, especially the Echinococcus bladderworms, Multiceps cerebralis, and Cysticercus pisiformis, still cause considerable economic losses in Hungary. In the near future, organized measures against the damages wrought by the Cestode infection, of dogs will be launched on an experimental level in two counties, with the aim of formulating a programme necessary for nationwide control. The control measures consist of 3 main parts: 1. the compulsory medicinal treatment of dogs against Cestodes by Devermin (Chinoin) once a year; that of sheep dogs and those kept on stock-breeding farms three times a year; 2. the supervision of private slaughtering of animals, in order to prevent infection of dogs; 3. informative campaigns and propaganda among the agricultural population by the mass media of press, radio, television, posters, and leaflets. Instructions on the main biological aspects of control will be given in schools.
