Abstract:

In the present study, Demodex mite species of dog were differentiated based on their morphometric analysis. For mite’s micrometry, skin scarping materials were collected from 40 demodicosis clinically infected dogs, presented with different clinical manifestations. Out of 150 dog mite’s species D. canis (n=50), D. cornei (n=50) and D. injai (n=50) were randomly selected for ocular micrometry of mites, body size and its segments. Correlation between body size and its body segments of all three Demodex species were estimated by descriptive statistical data analysis. There was a significant correlation between total body length and length of the podosoma and opisthosoma (p<0.05) of D. injai as compared to D. canis and D. cornei species of dog mites.
