Abstract

The emergence and reemergence of diseases transmitted by arthropods are challenges for the Veterinary and Human medicine. Domestic dogs are often exposed to different tick species, what makes these animals good sentinels for rickettsial diseases that affect humans. The state of Maranhão is located...

Abstract

The objective of the present work was to evaluate the efficacy of a non-sulphur-based homeopathic preparation and a sulphur-containing natural product derived from Allium sativum (Linnaeus) against infestation by the cattle tick Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus (Canestrini) (Acari: Ixodidae). A...
