Topical eprinomectin in the treatment of Psoroptes cuniculi
Macrocyclic lactones are thought to be the most effective weapons against Psoroptes cuniculi and related mites. Various protocols for the use of ivermectin, doramectin etc. exist. Is the eprinomectin spot-on for cattle which is so easy to administer equally effective? It does not seem so...

Six rabbits naturally infested with Psoroptes cuniculi were treated topically on the skin at the base of the neck with 0.5 mg per kg of 0.5% pour-on eprinomectin for cattle, twice at 14-day intervals.

Efficacy of the drug was based on the disappearance of clinical signs and the absence of live mites for a period of 6 weeks.

Clinical improvement was seen within 3 days of the first application; however, complete recovery of clinical signs and elimination of mites in 5/6 rabbits did not occur until the end of the study.

No adverse reactions attributable to eprinomectin treatment were observed during the observation period.

Results of this trial indicated that eprinomectin was partially effective in the treatment of psoroptic mange in rabbits.

Radioactive iodine uptake in hyperthyroid cats after rh-TSHmembers
Radioactive iodine therapy is considered the treatment of choice for hyperthyroidism in cats, but the availability of this modality is limited by costs and hospitalization requirements. Administration of recombinant human thyroid stimulating hormone (rh‐TSH) to humans with thyroid neoplasia or nodular goiter can increase thyroidal iodine uptake, thereby allowing the use of lower radioactive iodine doses for treatment. Veterinary studies of this subject are limited, and results are conflicting. Thus, the objective of this study was to investigate the effects of rh‐TSH administration on thyroidal iodine uptake in hyperthyroid cats.
