The current study concluded that the laboratory incubation with H2SO4 (0.1N) in 37Cº was beneficial for embryonation of T. canis eggs during ten days. This incubation showed all the stages of development as follow: the interphase, the early embryo, the Zygote, the blastomeres formation, Morula, Gastrula and early larvae formation inside the egg. All these stages were described and photographed with a digital camera.
