A 9 – year – old, 6.2 kg female Shitsu dog with a repeated history of pododemodicosis was presented at the animal hospital. The dog had been previously treated with miticides such as ivermectin injections and oral milbemycin oxime, but the clinical signs recurred every time after the therapy had been stopped. Microscopic examination of skin samples from the dog revealed the presence of Demodex canis. A spot – on formulation composed of 2.5% moxidectin and 10% imidacloprid was applied to the dog weekly. The dog’s skin lesions decreased by week 3 and the lesions completely resolved by week 6. There were no neurological abnormalities in the dog throughout the treatment.
