Effect of fluralaner treatment 48 h following infestations carried out at Day 2, 28 and 45 post-treatment. a Mean number of attached larvae at 48 h obtained by mouse visual inspections. b Mortality proportion of larvae at 48 h post-infestation. A sample of the remaining attached larvae was collected at 48 h and observed under microscope to evaluate if they were dead or alive. c Mean number of attached living larvae at 48 h calculated from the number of attached larvae and the larvae mortality proportion. d Fluralaner Cp arithmetic mean obtained from blood samples of three mice from each treatment group. Error bars represent ± 1 SE in a, b and c, and ± 1 SD in d. Key: black, 0 mg/kg; dark grey, 12.5 mg/kg; light grey, 50 mg/kg; *, a statistically significant difference compared with the control group (0 mg/kg) (GLM, Wald-test, P < 0.01)
