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

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.

In 5 dogs and 1 cat, with 14 attached Ixodes holocyclus during 9 separate host-tick interactions, 1 ml of fipronil applied to the tick and its attachment site, was 100% efficient in killing all ticks within 24 h. Five unattached ticks were also ki...
