For a number of reasons, several of the more 'traditional' ectoparasiticides in the small animal veterinarian's armoury have been withdrawn over the past few years. New, safer products which are long-acting and easier to apply than the conventional dips, rinses and aerosol sprays of the past have replaced them. However, relatively few such novel acaricidal preparations have become commercially available. Consequently, practitioners and researchers frequently experiment with the drugs they have… Expand
Comparative Efficacy of Three Commercial Ectoparasiticides against Fleas in Naturally Infested Dogs
TLDR
To compare the efficacy of three commercially available products against companion animal fleas, a trial was conducted on naturally-infested dogs in order to validate their pulicidal activity and showed a 100% efficacy for all tested products. Expand
Efficacy of Oral Sarolaner for the Treatment of Feline Otodectic Mange
TLDR
A single oral dose of sarolaner was effective in controlling otodectic mange in naturally infested cats and showed 100% efficacy 48 h after treatment. Expand
Efficacy of Oral Sarolaner for the Treatment of Feline Otodectic Mange.
TLDR
A single oral dose of sarolaner was effective in controlling otodectic mange in naturally infested cats and showed 100% efficacy 48 h after treatment. Expand
Efficacy of afoxolaner in a clinical field study in dogs naturally infested with Sarcoptes scabiei
The acaricidal efficacy of afoxolaner (NexGard®, Merial) was evaluated against Sarcoptes scabiei var. canis in a field efficacy study, when administered orally at a minimum dose of 2.5 mg/kg to dogsExpand
Assessment of the Ear Mite (Otodectes cynotis) Infestation and the Efficacy of an Imidacloprid plus Moxidectin Combination in the Treatment of Otoacariosis in a Hungarian Cat Shelter
TLDR
The efficacy of 10% imidacloprid and 1.0% moxidectin spot-on against O. cynotis was 100% on days 16 and 30 and the external ear canals of untreated cats continued to contain large amounts of dark brown, waxy cerumen and their ear swab samples contained live ear mites until the end of study. Expand
Use of doramectin for treatment of sarcoptic mange in five Angora rabbits.
TLDR
Administration of doramectin 1% injectable solution using the same route and dosage and at similar intervals to moxidectin led to complete disappearance of signs of scabies and parasitological cure in all rabbits. Expand
Burrowing mites in companion animals
TLDR
In order to have a good prognosis for cure in mange, treatment and identification of underlying diseases needs to be accurate, and treatment should be monitored past clinical and microscopic cure, to minimise the risk of recrudecence. Expand

TLDR
Some of the more recently developed, low-volume, topically applied insecticides and systemically acting macrolide formulations, although not always labeled for specific claims, may offer safe, efficacious, and convenient alternatives. Expand
Efficacy of imidacloprid 10 per cent/moxidectin 2·5 per cent spot-on in the treatment of cheyletiellosis in dogs
TLDR
Off-label use of imidacloprid 10 per cent/moxidectin 2·5 per cent spot-on to treat 20 dogs with cheyletiellosis is described, chosen because of its prolonged duration (four weeks) and easy application when dealing with a large number of dogs. Expand
Haematological response in the treatment of naturally acquired ectoparasite infestations in rabbits
TLDR
This study indicated that selamectin was effective and safe in the treatment and prevent re-infestation for at least 58 d post-treatment and the neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio could be used for monitoring of inflammatory response in rabbits. Expand

Observations on topical ivermectin in the treatment of otoacariosis, cheyletiellosis, and toxocariosis in cats.
The purpose of this study was to observe the efficacy of a topical pour-on formulation of ivermectin in the treatment of otoacariosis, cheyletiellosis, and toxocariosis in cats. Forty-five cats wereExpand

TLDR
Topical selamectin was a practical and well-tolerated means of treatment for cheyletiellosis in cats and no signs of recurrence were apparent on follow-up 1 year later. Expand
Efficacy and safety of selamectin against Sarcoptes scabiei on dogs and Otodectes cynotis on dogs and cats presented as veterinary patients.
TLDR
Selamectin was safe and effective against ear mites in dogs and cats and sarcoptic mange in dogs when used in field (veterinary patient) studies indogs and cats of a wide variety of ages and breeds. Expand
Efficacy of selamectin administered topically in the treatment of feline otoacariosis.
TLDR
Selamectin was 100% effective against natural aural infestations, even if erythema (26-33% of Cats) and scratch reflex (23-40% of cats) persisted for 2 weeks after the cats tested negative for mites. Expand
Field efficacy of moxidectin in dogs and rabbits naturally infested with Sarcoptes spp., Demodex spp. and Psoroptes spp. mites.
TLDR
Moxidectin is effective and a good alternative for the treatment of demodicosis and scabies in dogs and psoroptic mange in rabbits and side effects seem to occur more frequently if applied subcutaneously, therefore the oral route should be preferred. Expand
Evaluation of a sponge-on therapy for canine scabies.
TLDR
All dogs treated with the miticide responded clinically, therefore the treatment also may be useful when trial therapy is necessary to differentially diagnose the disease. Expand
Clinical efficacy of milbemycin oxime in the treatment of canine scabies: a study of 56 cases
TLDR
The results of this study show less efficacy than previously reported in the treatment of canine scabies, but all dogs were less pruritic or nonpruritic after the third treatment. Expand
