Three cases of Otobius megnini infestation in dogs are described. Head-shaking was the presenting complaint in the two dogs not receiving systemic corticosteroids. Removal of the ticks in two dogs, and the usage of a thiabendazole-dexamethasone-neomycin otic preparation in the third, resulted in resolution of the infestation.
