Example text

Eggs are laid in batches on vegetation in the late summer. The parasitic larvae (51) infest the host in groups of up to several hundred, often clustering on the head, ears, feet, or ventrum. The larvae feed for a few days and then leave. Since infestation may be non-pruritic in some cases, it is probable that those individuals displaying pruritus are manifesting a hypersensitivity to the mite or its products. CLINICAL FEATURES The infestation is a seasonal threat to the free-ranging dog or cat.

The distribution of the lesions reflects the exposed contact areas and, therefore, hairless dogs and cats are at more risk7. Clinical signs are usually confined to sparsely haired skin, but prolonged contact will result in extension to adjacent areas and, with time, the chin, ventral pinna, ventral neck, medial limbs, and the entire ventrum will be affected1,5. Generalized reactions may be seen in cases of reactions to shampoos1,5. Chronic otitis externa may result from sensitivity to topical neomycin or other potential irritants and sensitizers5,8,9.

However, it is now thought that it is the overall burden of fleas that contributes to FBH/FAD, and that population control is more important than preventing individual bites. Environmental treatment Vacuum cleaning will help remove adult fleas from the flooring, reduce the numbers of eggs and larvae within the carpet, elevate the carpet pile thus enhancing penetration of the insecticide, and stimulate emergence of pupated adults9. Environmental products are usually aerosol sprays consisting of a permethrin/pyrethroid combined with an IGR such as methoprene, pyriproxifen, or cyromazine.
