CME distribution is closely related to the distribution of the vector 3. Platelet counting Thrombocyte counts were calculated using the method described by Cheesbrough and McArtur There are several species of Ehrlichiabut the one that most commonly affects dogs and causes the most severe clinical signs is Ehrlichia canis.

The study was conducted in Northwestern of Mexico, state of Sinaloa. Treatment for ehrlichiosis involves the use of antibiotics such as tetracycline or doxycycline for a period of at least six to eight weeks; response to the drugs may take one month.

Ehrlichia canis is an obligate intracellular bacteria, the causative pathogen of Canine monocytic ehrlichiosis CMEwhich is a potentially zoonotic vector-borne disease 12.

A multivariate analysis with nonconditional logistic regression was performed with the variables that were significant in the bivariate analysis. Despite the high sensitivity and specificity reported for this method Aguirre et al.

More information is needed in order to prove if this vector can take on erlidhia role of competent vectors; ie, capable of transmitting the pathogen and causing the disease. All animals were clinically examined and variables such as gender, body condition, hemorrhages and presence of ticks were recorded. Guideline for veterinary prectitioners on canine Ehrlichiosis and anaplasmosis in Europe.

The prognosis is good for dogs with acute ehrlichiosis. We sequenced six positive products for E. Considering the sensitivity and specificity of the test, the true prevalence was The effect of collinearity between the evaluated variables was taken into account.

Supportive care must be provided to animals that have clinical signs. The erlichix of the dogs coming into contact with other reservoirs of erlicchia disease wildlife is also present Dantas-Torres Homelessness of a dog is also a risk factor of E. Infection is likely to depend on transmission via tick bites. The dogs risk to be infected psrros E. However, these results are consistent with those reported by Carvalho et al. The results show a high risk of infection in tick-infested dogs.
