Abstract:
Demodicosis is a non-contagious skin disease of dogs. The diagnosis is often easy as the mites can be easily demonstrated in deep skin scrapings, but the successful outcome depends on many factors including pet immunity and owner compliance, thus making the treatment challenging. Fluralaner, an isoxazoline compound previously used as an acaricide and insecticide is now found effective for demodicosis also. In the present case, a single administration of fluralaner orally along with antibiotics and omega fatty acid supplementation was found effective in the complete remission of skin lesions associated with demodicosis.
