Topics from this paper

Cat fur mite Lynxacarus radovskyi in India
TLDR
A Persian cat with the complaint of lustreless dry coat, salt and pepper appearance was brought to the dermatology unit of Madras Veterinary College, Chennai and revealed Lynxacarus radovskyi mites with eggs adhering to the hair shaft.
Efficacy of oral sarolaner against Lynxacarus radovskyi in naturally infested cats.
TLDR
A single oral dose of sarolaner effectively eliminated L. radovskyi mites in naturally infested cats.
Lynxacarus and Demodex infestation in a captive jaguar (Panthera onca) in La Democracia, Belize
TLDR
Clinical resolution of alopecia and excoriations was evident, and samples from 11 locations did not reveal any ectoparasites, the first report of the recovery of mites of the genera Lynxacarus and Demodex from a jaguar.
Self-induced, noninflammatory alopecia associated with infestation with Lynxacarus radovskyi: a series of 11 cats.
TLDR
Lynxacarus radovskyi infested cats can have lesions which are strikingly similar to flea allergic dermatitis with lesions most commonly found on the perianal area.
Comparison of parasitic mite retrieval methods in a population of community cats
TLDR
With the exception of O cynotis, the incidence of feline parasitic mites in the Ohio River Valley region of the USA is low; however, D gatoi and L radovskyi were present in the area and should be considered in cats with dermatologic disease attributable to them.
Efficacy and duration of action of oral fluralaner and spot-on moxidectin/imidacloprid in cats infested with Lynxacarus radovskyi.
TLDR
A single dose of oral fluralaner or two moxidectin/imidacloprid spot-on treatments two weeks apart are efficacious in the eradication of L. radovskyi in cats and able to prevent re-infestation for at least 42 days post-treatment.
Lynxacarus radovskyi mites in feral cats: a study of diagnostic methods, preferential body locations, co-infestations and prevalence.
TLDR
Hairs from the perianal area and other caudal body sites are most likely to harbour L. radovskyi, and tape impressions were easier to perform and identified more L. Radovskyi positive cats and more co-infestations.
Surface mites in dogs, cats and rabbits
TLDR
Mites are small arthropods with a world-wide distribution that can be parasitic or free-living, and are typically diagnosed by skin scrapings, coat brushings, hair plucks, and tape strips.
