ClinQuiz: Answer 5A

Correct. Selamectin is effective at controlling Sarcoptes scabiei, the mite shown in Figure 5. In severe infestations, repeated administration may be necessary to eliminate the mites. However, the intense pruritus caused by the inflammatory response to these mites is usually relieved within a few days of instituting effective therapy.13
