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!

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
