Abstract:
A German shepherd dog about one and half year old was presented to the TVCC Hospital, BVC, Patna with a complaint of inappetance, alopecia, redness and itching all over the body. Clinical examination revealed rough haircoat, alopecia, itching and erythema at face, ears, ventral abdomen along with swollen distal aspect of front and hind limbs, subsequently deep skin scrapings were collected and digested with 10% KOH and diagnosed as Demodex canis. The lesions of the dog was washed with benzyl peroxide and treated with Ivermectin @ 400 μg/kg s/c at every week interval and Amitraz @ 4ml/litre of water twice weekly for 4 weeks. During the due course Cephalexin @ 30 mg/kg, Meloxicam @0.2mg/kg and cetrizine@1mg/kg daily orally administered to prevent secondary bacterial infection, inflammation and itching respectively. An uneventful recovery was observed after 56 days of therapy.
