hour-long talk, we will provide an overview of ehrlichiosis as both a
potential pathogen of pets and as a zoonotic agent. We will review tick
transmission as well relevant tick species, geography, and seasonality. We’ll
present each of the three most relevant potential pathogens—E. canis, E.
ewingii, and E.
disease manifestations. We’ll discuss diagnosis and treatment of
ehrlichiosis, as well as the clinical utility of screening tests and the
appropriate course of action when a healthy dog tests positive.
