Ectoparasitic diseases of domestic animals are an urgent problem of modern veterinary medicine. Mite-borne dermatitis acquires the greatest epizootological, epidemiological and social significance. According to the results of the conducted researches it has been established that the etiological factors of parasitic dermatoses in domestic animals are the mites Otodectes cynotis, Sarcoptes canis, Demodex canis, Notoedres cati, Demodex cati and Psoroptes cuniculi. According to the results of the laboratory study, the prevalence of mite infestation among stray dogs is 66.7%, the mean intensity of invasion is 2.3 ticks in the field of view of the microscope, and among cats the prevalence of mite infestation is 75.0% with the mean intensity of infestation 3.0 ticks in the field of view of the microscope. The study of scrapings from the ears of rabbits revealed Psoroptes cuniculi mites, and the prevalence of the infection was 11.4% at the mean intensity of 3.0 mites in the field of view of the microscope. According to the results of the research it was established that the preparative forms of amitraz (drug No 1 with amitraz content of 2.0 mg/ml and drug No. 2 with amitraz content of 3.0 mg/ml) exhibit high acarinocidal properties and can be used to treat animals (dogs, cats, rabbits) with otodectosis, sarcoptosis, psoroptosis, notohedrosis, demodecosis.
