Several macrocyclic lactones (MLs; ivermectin, doramectin, eprinomectin and moxidectin) are registered for use against chorioptic mange mites as pour-on or subcutaneous injection products. Topical use of ivermectin has successfully treated chorioptic mange, but multiple treatments are needed, and results have been inconsistent. In dairy cattle, the use of other drugs and acaricides is limited by the need to observe withholding periods.
Seek advice from your veterinarian before using off-label treatments.
Most infestations are mild and asymptomatic, and control is usually not necessary.
Subcutaneous injection and pour-on acaricides (tick treatments) are not effective in controlling this species.
Seek advice from your veterinarian about off label treatment if needed.
Scabies itch mites are effectively controlled by washes, dips, or topical application of macrocyclic lactones (MLs; ivermectin, doramectin, eprinomectin and moxidectin). Check the label for directions.
