Selamectin for treatment of sucking lice
Selamectin is known to be effective against a variety of parasites. This brandnew study from Sweden evaluates if it is also effective against sucking lice, Linognathus setosus, in dogs. A very interesting study!

A clinical study was performed in 21 dogs to evaluate the efficacy of selamectin for the treatment of naturally acquired infection of sucking lice (Linognathus setosus [L.setosus]) in dogs.

Each dog was randomly assigned to one of two treatment groups. One group was treated with selamectin applied topically at a mean dosage of 7.9 mg/kg.

The other group was treated with permethrin applied topically at a mean dosage of 85.7 mg/kg.

At day 42 posttreatment, all animals remaining in the study (10 treated with selamectin and six with permethrin) were clear of lice.

In both groups, the reduction in lice counts from pretreatment values to day 42 was statistically significant at P0.0001. Selamectin applied topically appeared to be effective against L. setosus infection in dogs.

Shock index in identifying acute blood loss in healthy dogs
Does the shock index (SI) increase following blood donation and is it a more sensitive assessment of acute blood loss as heart rate (HR), blood pressure, and plasma Lactate? An interesting question! 20 client-owned clinically normal dogs were enrolled in this prospective study.
