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of reasons, several of the more 'traditional' ectoparasiticides in the small animal veterinarian's armoury have been withdrawn over the past few years.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…

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.
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.
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.
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 dogs
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.
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.
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.

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 were
Efficacy of non-acaricidal containing otic preparations in the treatment of otoacariasis in dogs and cats
TLDR
Both treatments were highly effective, and there were no significant differences between the two products, either in efficacy or in the clinical improvements observed.

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.
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.
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.
Clinicopathologic findings, sensitivity to house dust mites and efficacy of milbemycin oxime treatment of dogs with Cheyletiella sp. infestation.
Twenty-three dogs with positive skin scrapings for Cheyletiella sp. were treated with milbemycin oxime using a protocol approximating 2 mg kg-1 orally once weekly for three weeks. Nineteen of these
Use of 0.25 per cent fipronil spray to treat sarcoptic mange in a litter of five-week-old puppies
TLDR
Horses years despite the presence of a tumour, and merely require frequent hair clipping and access to sufficient water, and some affected horses need a higher plane of nutrition.
