A Rapid and Precise Diagnostic Test for the Detection of Ehrlichiosis in dogs

 

 

Canine ehrlichiosis and anaplasmosis are two important tick-borne diseases that affect dogs and humans as well as other animal species world wide.

 

Originally in the same Ehrlichia group, Anaplasma has now been reclassified based on molecular method as a separated genera. These bacteria parasitizes in the blood cells of the host and cause variable degree of abnormalities, depending on the species involved and the immune response of the host. However the most common finding in these two organism is thrombocytopenia. Coinfection is possible and tend to worsen the disease condition and complicate the diagnose.

 

The QubeMDx provide diagnostic solutions to the most two common species in the clinical practice: 'Ehrlichia. canis' and 'Anaplasma. platys'


Dogs will appear perfectly normal for one to three weeks after being bitten by a tick carrying E. canis bacteria. If the dog is unable to fight off the infection during this time, he will enter what is known as the acute phase of infection.

 

Dogs can display a variety of symptoms during the acute phase of canine ehrlichiosis, including:

  • Fever
  • Lethargy
  • Poor appetite
  • Lymph node enlargement
  • Abnormal bruising and bleeding
  • Chronic eye inflammation
