Flea Biology and Control : The Biology of the Cat Flea. Control and Prevention with Imidacloprid in Small Animals

The book describes in great detail the complex life cycle of fleas based on the example of the cat flea (Ctenocephalides felis), the most important ectoparasite worldwide. Besides being the cause of painfully itching bites and allergic skin diseases, it is also a vector for viruses, bacteria, nematodes and cestodes. Over the years the market for insecticide use in small animals has become a major segment of the flea medicine control chemical-pharmaceutical industry.Insecticides of the new generation should not only fight the existing infestation (therapy) but should also effectively prevent new infestations for weeks (prophylaxis). The latest class of chemicals developed to this effect are chloronicotinyls (syn. neonicotinoides). Imidacloprid is the first member of this class of insecticides with a high selectivity towards the site of action within an insect. Applied to the skin it combats flea infestation persistently. The flea control book describes the development of the compound from its discovery to its use in veterinary medicine.

Fleas and ticks: How to protect your dog

Four Common Skin Problems in Dogs

Author: Blake Kritzberg

Article:
Dogs are susceptible to various skin problems -- which can be

frustrating for owners who want to see Fido comfortable and
happy. Does your dog have a skin problem, and if so, how do you
fix it?

That depends on the symptoms you see. Of course, the most common
sign of a possible skin problem in your dog is constant,
excessive itching. Other symptoms include fur loss, either
localized in a certain location or spread across the dog's
entire body. More severe cases may involve redness in the skin,
changes in skin pigmentation or even open sores that your dog
constantly licks.

No particular symptom necessarily proves your four-footed friend
has a certain type of skin disorder, and you'll need to
investigate other areas before you draw conclusions. While it's
common and helpful for veterinarians to diagnose skin problems,
it's also essential for dog owners like you to familiarize
yourself with typical canine skin problems, so you can react
quickly and keep his discomfort to a minimum.

<B>Fleas, Lice and Ticks</B>

One of the most common problems in dogs is the presence of
fleas, lice and ticks, which are parasites that live on the
surface of the skin and feed on the dog's blood. These
parasites' saliva causes skin irritation and results in intense
scratching.

Lice and ticks can be detected visually when you check your
dog's fur, while fleas are hard to spot with the naked eye.
However, fleas cause red pimple marks on the skin and also can
be spotted through the black, gritty trail of "dirt" they leave
on a dog's belly.

While you can remove ticks and lice with tweezers -- applying
alcohol to relax the tick's grip before doing so -- you can also
adopt more general methods. For instance, you can give your dog
a dip with special tick shampoo to eliminate ticks. Flea sprays
or flea powder can also be applied to the dog to kill parasites.
But all these require persistence and it may be a while before
you see results.

One of the best methods to keep your dog comfortable is to
prevent ticks from living off your dog in the first place
through the use of a spot-on product, such as FrontLine or
BioSpot. To apply these chemicals, you drip a small amount onto
the back of your dog's neck once a month. The chemical spreads
throughout the dog's skin and kills parasites -- including the
eggs and larvae. When regularly treated, your dog becomes an
unattractive host.

<B>Mange</B>

Mange is a skin problem caused by mites that burrow underneath
the dog's skin, causing intense and even agonizing itching. Bald
spots or inflamed red skin are common symptoms of mange. Two
types of mange exist in dogs: sarcoptic mange and demodectic
mange, depending on the kind of mite involved.

Most dogs carry the mites involved in demodectic mange or
demodex. However, these mites usually do not cause itching
except when they suddenly multiply into huge numbers. This may
happen in young puppies, or in dogs with decreased natural body
defenses, sometimes from stress.

On the other hand, Sacroptic mange or scabies causes intense
itching in the dog as the mites burrow under the skin and even
lay their eggs there. This causes large red spots on the dog's
skin, and sometimes fur loss on the ears and elbows. Scabies can
infect humans as well and cause itchiness, although infection in
humans usually disappears by itself after a while. However, it
is still important for people to seek treatment if they get
infected.

Treatment for mange requires patience and time, as eliminating
them or lowering the mite population takes a while to take
effect. The best way to kill the mites is to soak your dog in a
lime and sulfur medicated dip for 10 to 15 minutes a few times
in a week. The dip should not be washed off, but left to dry on
your dog's skin and fur. During this time, it's best to watch
your dog closely and prevent him from licking himself dry. As a
further precaution, you can feed him a raw egg to line his
stomach before dipping him in the solution. This way, even if he
does lick himself, the solution won't be absorbed on an empty
stomach.

When fighting mange, it's also important to support your dog
with the highest quality diet you can find, to improve his
immune system. Healing from mange will take a lot of his
internal resources. You might consider looking into the raw diet
for dogs and avoiding any corn or rice-based products for the
time being.
