Doramectin against scabies in rabbits
Doramectin, ivermectin and moxidectin are known to be effective against Sarcoptic mange in dogs. Moxidectin was described to be only partial effective in rabbits which is rather surprising. In this study, doramectin is chosen to treat scabies infestation in the very sensitive Angora rabbits. It works!

The efficacy of administering doramectin after moxidectin treatment, which has previously proved only partially effective, was evaluated in five Angora rabbits naturally infested with Sarcoptes scabiei mange.

Evaluations included physical examination for clinical signs of sarcoptic mange and collection of skin scrapings for determination of mites.

The rabbits first received two subcutaneous injections, 10 days apart, of moxidectin 1% injectable solution at a dosage of 0.2 mg kg1 of bodyweight.

Although moxidectin treatment resulted in clinical improvement within 10 days post initial injection, on days 10 and 35 post initial treatment live mites were present in skin scrapings.

Administration of doramectin 1% injectable solution using the same route and dosage and at similar intervals to moxidectin led to complete disappearance of signs of scabies and parasitological cure in all rabbits.

Novel intratumoral therapy in canine transmissible venereal tumourmembers
Canine transmissible venereal tumour (CTVT) is a naturally occurring contagious neoplasm of dogs located mainly on the external genitalia of both sexes. The course of vincristine chemotherapy, the most effective and practical therapy, is affected by the immune status of the host. The aim was to investigate recombinant human interferon alpha‐2a (rhIFNα‐2a) and vincristine for treatment of CTVT.
