Ehrlichiosis (canine)

In chronic cases, infected dogs fail to mount an effective immune response. In the case of E. However, some studies have described persistence of seropositivity for up to one year after the treatment [ ].

Nevertheless, molecular studies have detected A. Furthermore, the occurrence of A. Molecular detection of Dirofilaria immitis, Hepatozoon canis, Babesia spp. The genome of the obligately intracellular bacterium Ehrlichia canis reveals themes of complex membrane structure and immune evasion strategies. For cases with hemorrhage or organic lesions, the dog may require admission to a hospital for a more intensive treatment. Based on clinical and serologic results a suggestive diagnosis of HME was established.
