Title : Evaluation of three injectable formulations of ivermectin for treatment of sheep with sarcoptic mange.
Authors : M.L. DIA et C. DIOP
Summary : Three injectable acaricidal drugs each containing 1 % m/v ivermectin as active ingredient (Ivomec®, Cevamec®, Uvemec®) were tested against sarcoptic mange of sheep in Mauritania. Each was administered subcutaneously according to the manufacturer’s recommendations (i.e. 2 injections, at one week interval, of 0.2 mg ivermectin per kg bodyweight) The efficacy of each product was compared in accordance to parasitological and clinical criteria based on the isolation of Sarcoptes scabiei var ovis from the lesions and on the clinical evolution of pruritus and the observed lesions. Seven days after the administration of the second injection, all animals in the group treated with Ivomec® were clinically and parasitologically cured (complete disappearance of mites and clinical signs), but only few animals in the groups treated with Cevamec® or Uvemec® were clinically and parasitologically cured.
Keywords : Sarcoptes scabiei var ovis - mange - sheep - ivermectin - efficacy - generics.
