Table 1 Live attached R. sanguineus (s.l.) tick counts and infestation adequacy on untreated control group dogs (n = 8) throughout the 48 h treatment evaluation period that started 48 h after the initial tick challenge

From: A comparative laboratory trial evaluating the immediate efficacy of fluralaner, afoxolaner, sarolaner and imidacloprid + permethrin against adult Rhipicephalus sanguineus (sensu lato) ticks attached to dogs
