2.  The percentage of animals infested in the Skudo Group (0%) was lower than the one of the Control Group (28%), and this result was already observed on the day after the application of the pyrethroid composition (3rd day of the test).

Results :

1.  The Skudo. device was well tolerated by dogs and no alteration in their behavior was observed during this study.

3.  The results demonstrate that a standard anti-parasite method (in this specific case, with a shampoo containing pyrethroid) was not sufficient to eliminate fleas, since 28% of the dogs in the control group continued to be infested over 5 weeks after the bath (35th day).

"We can conclude that the ultrasonic device used during the tests is well tolerated by the dog; the effectiveness of the device in removing the parasites from the dog has been proved as very successful and, however, as powerful as that of two active principles such as Asuntol and Neguvon whose parasiticide action is well renowned."

Abstract

 

Concerning electronic tick and flea repeller’s use, was conducted on 3 groups of dogs as follows:

 

Group 1:  5 domestic dogs parasite free

Group 2:  5 domestic dogs weakly infested dogs

Group 3:  15 severely infested dogs living in a kennel

 

 

Method

 

The Skudo flea and tick repeller device was fixed to a common collar and then applied on the dogs subject to testing.  The device was well tolerated by the dogs and no alteration to their behavior was observed during the study.

 

 

Results

 

Group 1:  No infestation of parasites were observed.

 

Group 2:  4 out of 5 dogs were free from parasites at the 7th day of control.  1 dog out of 5 still showed a weak presence at the 7th day of control but at the 9th day control, no parasites were observed.  Their absence was still documented during the control at day 35.

 

Group 3:  A 76% reduction in infestation was observed after 7 days of the device’s use.  A 97% reduction in infestation was documented during the 35 day control.  The results of this group are particularly interesting as the parasite population had been present in the kennels for a long time and had been resistant to several parasiticide treatments.
