Anaplasmosis - Deer tick disease

6 posts in this topic

Anaplasmosis is another bacterium disease carried and transferred by deer ticks. Our vets standard blood test looks for Lyme and hearworm - now also checks for anaplasmosis. At one time diagnosis required a specific and separate blood test - warranted by symptoms...

My older Brittany was diagnosed with anaplasmosis. It may have been quite awhile ago that she had the disease, but she went through three weeks of tetracyline treatment.

Many of the symptoms are similar to Lyme, if you dog does not test positive for Lyme, but is showing symptoms associated with Lyme -

make sure your vet is using the new test kit....

If you get deer ticks I would assume that it would be possible. For the best answer I would contact your vet. If you think your dog is having symptoms then I would definately call the vet.

No symptoms grin.gif on my hunting lab, but have noticed a more than usual tick population this spring in my area. I will check with my vet to see if the deer ticks are in our area. We do have deer are they the main carrier of these or is it just a name they have given the tick for no reason or tie to deer? Not heard of any problems in our area. We do however have to keep an eye out for lyme dis. in our area. Thanks for the info. I will give my vet a call.

White footed mouse is the main carrier/host of deer ticks.

Good Luck!

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
