In February 2010, dermatitis characterized by scale and self-trauma due to puritis was recognized in a group of 22 four-toed hedgehogs (Atelerix albiventris Wagner, 1841) from a local pet shop in Gwangju, Korea. [...] Key Result Microscopic examinations of skin scraping samples showed numerous mites of all developmental stages. Morphologically, pedicels of adult mites were short and unjointed. Tarsal caruncles were bell-shaped on all legs of males while they were absent on legs III and IV of females.Expand
Treatment of mange caused by Caparinia tripilis in native Korean wild hedgehogs (Erinaceus amurensis): a case report.
TLDR
This is the first description of a capariniosis case in the native Korean wild hedgehog E. amurensis and treatment was successful after initial administration of 0.4 mg/kg ivermectin s.c.o., repeated 14 and 28 days after injection. Expand
Use of sarolaner in African hedgehogs (Atelerix albiventris) infested with Caparinia tripilis
TLDR
Sarolaner as a standalone treatment effectively treated Caparinia tripilis infection without evidence of any adverse effects in two African hedgehogs with sarolaner. Expand

TLDR
This is the first reported case of Caparinia tripilis dermatitis in a hedgehog in Romania, and a dermatophyte belonging to Microsporum genus was also isolated by culture on specific media. Expand
Fluralaner as a single dose oral treatment for Caparinia tripilis in a pygmy African hedgehog.
TLDR
A single oral dose at 15 mg/kg of fluralaner was effective within 21 days after treatment for capariniasis in the African pygmy hedgehog, and further studies are required to evaluate the drug's safety and toxicology in hedgehogs, and to confirm efficacy. Expand
Seasonal Abundance of Biting Midges, Culicoides spp. (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae), Collected at Cowsheds in the Southern Part of the Republic of Korea
Black light traps were used to measure the seasonal and geographical distribution of Culicoides spp. (biting midges or no-see-ums) at 9 cowsheds in the southern half of the Republic of Korea (ROK)Expand
First Report of the Use of Afoxolaner/Milbemycin Oxime in an African Pygmy Hedgehog (Atelerix Albiventris) With Demodicosis Caused by Demodex Canis Identified By Molecular Techniques
TLDR
The molecular and phylogenetic analysis showed that the species causing the demodicosis in the patient was Demodex canis and the single oral dose of afoxolaner/milbemycin oxime reduced the number of mites to 0 in subsequent samples 7 days after the treatment and there were no lesions after 30 days.

Positivity and Intensity of Gnathostoma spinigerum Infective Larvae in Farmed and Wild-Caught Swamp Eels in Thailand
TLDR
This is the first observation that farmed eels showed positive findings of G. spinigerum infective larvae, which may affect the standard farming of the culture farm and also present a risk of consuming undercooked eels from the wild-caught and farmed Eels. Expand
Efficacy of a combination of 10% imidacloprid and 1% moxidectin against Caparinia tripilis in African pygmy hedgehog (Atelerix albiventris)
TLDR
This report suggests that a combination formulation of 0.1 ml/Kg of 10% imidacloprid + 1% moxidectin spot-on for cats is also useful for the control of Caparinia tripilis infestation in hedgehogs. Expand

TLDR
The African hedgehog, Atelerix albiventris (also known as Erinaceous albventris; 1,2) has recently undergone an increase in popularity as an exotic pet, due in part to the small size, its lack of hibernation or aestivation if reared under controlled light and temperature, and its general good nature and accommodation to handling.
