What is Ehrlichiosis

Ehrlichiosis in dogs is a rickettsia infection caused by the organisms Ehrlichia canis and Ehrlichia lewinii. These bacteria are spread by the brown dog tick and the Lone Star tick, respectively. Rickettsiae are a type of bacteria that inhabit a cell, in this case, the body's white blood cells, which are destroyed in the process. While there are a number of species in the genus Ehrlichia, the E. canis and E. lewinii are the two that are of main concern for dogs, with E. canis being the more diagnosed form and the type tested for on this test.

What are the symptoms of Ehrlichia Canis

Ehrlichia canis is an infection of white blood cells that can eventually affect bone marrow function, including production of blood cells. Common symptoms can include Depression and/or lack of energy, Loss of appetite, Runny eyes and nose/discharge, Spontaneous nose bleeds, Bruising on gums and belly and Lameness/joint pain

How do dogs contract the infection

Ehrlichia is commonly transmitted by ticks.

Why do I need this Test

Ehrlichiosis is a common infection, and one to be on guard against in almost all geographical locations throughout the year. The prognosis is good for dogs with acute ehrlichiosis but for dogs that have reached the chronic stage of the disease, the prognosis is guarded, so it is important to seek treatment early before symptoms worsen.

How do I perform the Test

It is very simple - just obtain a blood sample and apply 1 drop of blood to the test cassette and then add 2 drops of the test solution. You will then be able to read the results after 15 minutes. A positive or negative result is indicated by 2 or only 1 line in the test window respectively.

What should I do if I get a positive result

You must see your Vet immediately so that he/she can start treatment ASAP.
