Australian Veterinary Practitioner 26(3): 155

The effects of fipronil on Ixodes holocyclus on dogs in northern NSW

Eight dogs (group 1) were sprayed once only with fipronil (Frontline) at 6 ml/kg body weight. Eight dogs (group 2) of similar breed and tick holding capacity were untreated controls. All dogs were loaded with 50 ticks/week/dog. The dogs were housed separately for the duration of the trial. Tick mortality was over 95% for over 3 weeks in the group 1 dogs.
