Table 5 Estimated contribution of household dogs under different compliance rates of cleaning-up faeces by owners

From: Environmental contamination with Toxocara eggs: a quantitative approach to estimate the relative contributions of dogs, cats and foxes, and to assess the efficacy of advised interventions in dogs

Compliance Contribution to Toxocara egg output
20 %   32.2 (36.4–26.7)%
50 %   20.1 (31.2–3.1)%
70 %   12.0 (26.1–0.0)%
90 %   4.0 (24.3–0.0)%
