Three groups of the water buffaloes were experimentally infested with Sarcoptes scabiei. A group of two was served as the control and also used for studying the course of the disease; the other two groups were experimented under the indoor and outdoor conditions. The latter two groups were washed with a 1.75% suspension of lime and sulfur once a week for seven consecutive weeks whereas the control received a similar wash with tap water. Both of the treated groups responded to the treatments, recovering completely at the end of the ninth week. The controls were chronically diseased. The course of the disease is described.
