AbstractAs part of the New Zealand hydatid eradication programme, working and hunting dogs are currently treated with praziquantel every 6 weeks, to remove any cestodes that may have been acquired during that period. This 6-weekly dosing programme was proposed in the 1967 report of the Committee of Inquiry into Hydatids Eradication, and was implemented progressively through New Zealand between 1972 and 1975. Because the anthelmintic treatment does not cause the dogs to purge, any worms released by the treatment are generally deposited at a later defaecation
