Otodectes cynotis mite is a common parasite of cats and dogs, survives in the ear canal and causes otitis externa, itching and severe complications. The microscopic examination of ear swabs, skin scraps and faecal samples of 289 cats and 223 dogs revealed that mono-specific and mixed infestations of Otodectes cynotis in cats were (24.56%) and(6.57%) while in dogs were (7.17%) and (4.48%) respectively. The highest rate of infestation was in young cats and the lowest was in elder dogs. The mixed… 
Epizootic features of pets’ sarcoptoidoses and therapeutic efficiency of iver-mectin
The most effective drug was to fight Psoroptes cuniculi and Notoedres cati and parenteral administration of ivermectin solutions of 1% and 0.1% was applied twice at 7-day intervals to combat sarcoptoidosis pathogens.
Factors related to the frequency of cat ear mites (Otodectes cynotis).
The factors related to the frequency of infestations in cats in Alanya, Antalya are investigated to reveal the association of risk factors with using chi-square tests and Statistically significant differences were between lifestyle and infestation.
Evidence-based veterinary dermatology: a review of published studies of treatments for Otodectes cynotis (ear mite) infestation in cats.
There is fair evidence for recommending spot-on 10% imidacloprid +1% moxidectin or selamectin, once or twice 30 days apart, while there is insufficient evidence for or against recommending all other medications due to the quality of study designs in spite of their high efficacies.
Transcriptome Analysis of Otodectes cynotis in Different Developmental Stages
The expression level of allergen genes hints at the pathogenicity of mites in different life stages, and the protein interaction network analysis could identify possible key genes in the pathogenic mechanism.
Otoscopy and aural cytological findings in a population of rescue cats and cases in a referral small animal hospital in England and Wales
There was a low prevalence of O cynotis in this cohort of cats, in normal cats it was not unusual to find Malassezia microorganisms upon aural cytology, bacteria were noted far less frequently and in two cats this was associated with underlying anatomical pathology.
Ear Mite Infestation in Two Dogs and its Therapy
Two dogs were referred to the clinic with the history of severe itching around the ears since 20 days of intense pruritus and examination of the dark coloured cerumen revealed exist Otodectes mites.
Role of Molecular Diagnosis for Dog Ear Mite Infestation

Ectoparasites of dogs and cats in Albania
One hundred eighty-one dogs and 26 short-hair cats from suburban areas around Tirana, Albania were examined for ectoparasite infestation and found that prevalence of infestation with C. canis was significantly (p < 0.01) higher in dogs >6 months old; however, there was no difference between the sexes for the prevalences ofinfestation with those parasites.
A survey of ectoparasite infestations in stray dogs of Gwang-ju City, Republic of Korea.
Investigation of the incidence of ectoparasite infestation among stray dogs in Gwang-ju City, Republic of Korea found dogs less than 1 yr old were more heavily infected than other age groups, and small-sized dogs of less than 3 kg body weight were more heavy infected than larger dogs.
Validity of species status of the parasitic mite 
Otodectes cynotis
Investigations support the view that ear mites from different hosts and geographical origins belong to a single species, Otodectes cynotis (Hering), which did not segregate according to host species or geographical origin.
Parasites of importance for human health in Nigerian dogs: high prevalence and limited knowledge of pet owners
Parasites of importance for human health were highly prevalent in Nigerian dogs, and knowledge regarding zoonoses was very limited and the diseases not considered a major health problem.
Efficacy and safety of selamectin (Stronghold®/RevolutionTM) used off-label in exotic pets.
The efficacy and safety of selamectin used off-label in exotic pets are detailed and discussed and practical experiences and results suggest that selamECTin is effective against a variety of ecto- and endoparasites.

Parasites are a common cause of dermatological disease in the dog and cat. Knowledge of different miticidal options for the common parasitic diseases is imperative when choosing the appropriate
Mites from the dog, cat, fox, and ferret have been shown to be biologically and morphologically identical, and the varietal names of canis, cati, and furonis are invalidated.
