Fever Less commonly: coughing, seizures, vomiting and diarrhea A. How is Anaplasmosis Diagnosed? Your veterinarian may also suggest a number of tests depending on their clinical suspicion of anaplasmosis. Pets who have a history of tick exposure, live in an endemic area, and have the appropriate signs are all considered at risk. An examination of the blood is the first step to evaluate the blood cells and platelets. While the organism may occasionally be identifiable under the microscope, more accurate tests are performed in the laboratory.
How is Anaplasmosis Treated? Anaplasmosis can be treated with the antibiotic doxycycline. The earlier in the course of disease the treatment begins, the better the outcome.
Most dogs are treated for a full 30 days, though improvement is often seen within the first few days of treatment. The long term prognosis for dogs who have undergone a full course of treatment is excellent. It is unknown if some dogs become persistent carriers without showing clinical signs of disease; some dogs may continue to test positive for anaplasmosis even after treatment and appearing clinically healthy.
How do I Prevent Anaplasmosis? The best prevention includes stringent tick prevention. Check your dog for ticks every day, being sure to check in between the toes, under the collar, behind the ears and in the armpits. Ticks vary from the size of a pinhead up to the size of a grape; while usually dark brown or black, they turn grey after they have been attached and feeding for a period of time.
Grasp the tick close to the skin using tweezers or a device specifically designed for tick removal. Dispose of the tick by placing it in alcohol or flushing down the toilet. Prophylactic treatment with doxycycline after a tick bite is not common practice in veterinary medicine. Antibiotic treatment is reserved for dogs who are clinically ill and have tested positive for the anaplasma bacterium.
It is important to remember that a dog diagnosed with one type of tick-borne disease may have other ones as well because of the shared vector.
If you think your pet may have been exposed to any tick borne disease, let your vet know so he or she can get your dog back on track. Learn more about the best ways to get rid of and prevent ticks on dogs.
