The aim of this note was to record for the first time the recovery of Toxocara canis
larvae from tissues and organs of Rattus norvegicus
(Berkenhout, 1769), Wistar strain, until the 60th day after experimental infection. Rats were orally infected with embryonated T. canis
eggs, killed on days 3, 5, 8, 10, 15, 30, and 60 after inoculation and larvae were recovered from liver, lungs, kidneys, brain, and carcass after acid digestion, showing a pattern of migration similar of that previously observed in mice.
