– topically administered endectocide; used to control fleas and ticks, ear mites, sarcoptic mange, and as a heartworm preventative for dogs and cats; avermectin-type drug

34. DRUG → Amprolium
– antiprotozoal used primarily in calves and avian species; similar in structure to thiamin and therefore acts by causing a thiamin deficiency

35. DRUG → Melarsomine
– arsenical adulticide against Dirofilaria; requires a deep IM injection

36. DRUG → Macrolides (avermectins and milbenycins)
– drugs blocked from getting to the brain by P-glycoprotein

– group of insecticides that works by blocking acetylcholinesterase

38. DRUG → Moxidectin (Cydectin in cattle, Quest in horses)
– milbemycin type of antiparasitic approved for use in cattle and horses; was that active ingredient in the 6-month heartworm preventative ProHeart®

39. DRUG → Thiabendazole
– prototype drug for the benzimidazoles; attacks β-tubulin in the parasite cells; has antiinflammatory antifungal activity so is used in some ear medications

40. DRUG → Ponazuril
– antiprotozoal drug developed to be effective against the agen that causes EPM

41. DRUG → Ivermectin
– microfilaricide most commonly used (not milbemycin)

42. DRUG → Fenbendazole
– benzimidazole antihelmentic; approved for use in dogs, horses, and livestock; must be given for 3 consecutive days in the dog to be effective; includes the trade name livestock medication Safe-Guard®

43. DRUG → Pyrantel
– antinematodal; considered very safe; effective against hookworms as well as ascarids; pleasant-tasting liquid suspension administered PO; often combined with other antihelmentics like praziquantel or inermectin

48. DRUG → Imidacloprid
– topically applied flea insecticide; put between the shoulder blades; wide margin of safety; blocks nicotinic cholinergic receptor site for acetylcholine

49. DRUG → Lufenuron

54. DRUG → Organophosphates and carbamates
– insecticides associated with SLUDDE signs

55. DRUG → Piperonyl Butoxide
– added to pyrethrins to increase their killing activity; a synergist drug

56. DRUG → Fipronil
– topically applied insecticide; removes the inhibitory effect of GABA on the nervous system, causing overstimulation of the insect and death; is very safe because the receptor site for this drug in insects is very different from the receptor site in mammals; can be toxic to some fish

– antidote for organophosphate or carbamate toxicosis; readily available in ,ost veterinary practices; blocks acetylcholine receptor

58. DRUG → Mitenpyram
– oral flea tablet adulticide; rapid death of fleas; nicotine-type compound, so stimulates muscle movement of the fleas initially then paralyzes them; animals may have a transient period of increased itching after administration because of seizurelike activity of the fkeas as they die

59. DRUG → Pyriproxyfen
– JHM for fleas; larvae do not mature to adults; adulticide activity is minimal; similar to methoprene

60. DRUG → DEET (diethyltoluamide)
– insect repellant often used in human repellant products; can cause neurologic side effects

False, Microfilaria are not capable of developing into adult heartworms until they are picked up by the mosquito and molt within the mosquito. The infective larvae injected into another animal by the mosquito migrate through tissue and spen a relatively small amount of time in the blood. Also, bcause there are very few migrating infective larvae in the body, the chances of the infective larvae being in the blood and being taken up in a transfusion are very, very, slim. –
True or False? Heartworm disease can be acquired from a blood transfusion taken from a heartworm-positive dog that has circulating microfilaria.

False, Cats with adult heartworms are not treated with adulticides, as the risk of fatal emboli and lung inflammatory reactions is too great. Thus the adult heartworms are allowed to die naturally one at a time and any inflammatory reaction is treated with corticosteroids or other medications. –
True or False? Cats should be treated for heartworm with melaesomine.

False, Lacrimation (tear production) –
True or False? The “L” in SLUDDE stands for “locomotion”.

False, It is an inhibitory neurotransmitter. Stimulation of the glutamate receptor inhibits the nervous system, and blocking glutamate’s effect allows domination of excitatory neurotransmitters. –
True or False? Glutamate is an excitatory neurotransmitter.

True –
True or False? Live ascarid worms may be expelled after administration of piperazine
