Fipronil spray in canine scabies
A variety of drugs is known to be effective in canine scabies. A group from Greece did a field trial with fipronil spray which was used on a weekly basis (manufacturers´ recommendation: every 4-12 weeks) to evaluate if it was effective against Sarcoptes scabiei variatio canis.

Twelve dogs naturally infested with S. Scabiei were included in the trial. Diagnosis was based on clinical signs, skin scrapings and/or serology.

All the dogs were treated with a 0.25% fipronil spray, once weekly, for four consecutive weeks, using a total of 12 to 39 mL/kg of spray.

Pruritus and skin lesions disappeared, respectively, seven to 66 days and 14-71 days after the beginning of the treatment.

No relapses occurred during the three to four-month follow-up period.

Three dogs were kept under observation for a further eight to 12-month period with no relapses witnessed.
Of the nine dogs that had been seropositive at the beginning of the study, only two out of six were found to be seronegative when retested three to four months after the end of the treatment.

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.
