Table 2 Acaricidal efficacy (24 h) against Rhipicephalus sanguineus (sensu lato) on dogs 7 days after topical fluralaner treatment and water immersion at various times

From: Water immersion of dogs close to the time of topical fluralaner treatment does not reduce efficacy against a subsequent experimental challenge with Rhipicephalus sanguineus (sensu lato)
