Canine Demodicosis: Old and New Treatments
Canine generalised demodicosis is a common condition seen in dogs, especially in young dogs of certain breeds. Over the years there have been reports on several anti-ectoparasitic products used for the treatment of this condition. In the UK many of them are not licenced for dogs, but for large animal use. In recent years there have been some developments in the treatment of canine generalised demodicosis. This paper discusses the use of older preparations such as amitraz, and the newer preparations such as moxidectin, milbemycin, fl uralaner and afoxolaner in the treatment of the condition. It also mentions the use of unlicensed products such as ivermectin and doramectin.
