Abstract

Mite infestation of reptiles is a common problem that can be quite burdensome to treat. Mites leave the host and reproduce in bedding, caging, and housing of the reptiles, making environmental treatment as important as animal treatment. In a small study, Bravecto® (Fluralaner, Merck Animal Health, Madison, NJ, USA), used at a dose used in dogs and cats, was effective in controlling external parasites in a group of ball pythons (Python regius) without extensive environmental cleaning.
