Control of an outbreak of pig mange with ivermectin



Control of an outbreak of pig mange with ivermectin



Veterinary Record 121(21): 496-496



In September 1986, an outbreak of severe clinical mange with intense pruritus and aural encrustations was observed in a group of replacement gilts. The gilts were injected subcutaneously with ivermectin at a dose rate of 300 micro g/kg body weight in October. No further treatments were administered. A study of skin scrapings from the ears of 8 of the gilts showed that Sarcoptes scabiei var. suis was present in 6 of these sows on the day of treatment.
