Abstract

1. Infection of a green peacock, imported into Maruyama Zoo, with Strongyloides sp., Heterakis sp., Capillaria sp. and cestode was recognized, and critical anthelmintic trials were made with the bird to ascertain the efficiency of three drugs against those parasites. 2. By serial medication of phenothiazine for two days, dead larvae of Strongyloides sp. were found, but other efficiency was not recognized. 3. By the administration of 2 g of kamala, almost all cestodes were eliminated, and dead larvae of Strongyloides sp. were found, but lack of appetite appeared as a collateral effect. 4. A turkey treated with a total dose of 450 mg of dithiazanine iodide for three days died because of the toxicity. 5. Daily doses of 100 and 150 mg of dithiazanine iodide were administered serially for two days, and Strongyloides sp., Heterakis sp. and Capillaria sp. were eliminated completely.
