Vector-borne diseases are likely a higher risk this year

Image description

Heartworm, Lyme, and other vector-borne diseases are expected to pose higher-than-average risk this year, the Companion Animal Parasite Council (CAPC) reports.

The group has released its 2022 Pet Parasite Forecast and corresponding 30-day Pet Parasite Forecast maps, alerting veterinarians and pet owners of impending outbreaks across the U.S.

CAPC predicts instances of heartworm, transmitted by mosquitoes, will be higher than average throughout 2022, particularly along the Atlantic coast and Mississippi River, with increased risk in the southwest (including New Mexico and southern Arizona), large portions of Colorado and Kansas, and the northern Great Plains. Further, as reported last year, the forecast of increased risk continues in parts of California, Idaho, and Montana.


Canine Heartworm disease

Heartworm disease is a fatal but preventable infection in dogs. Mosquitoes act as the vector of the worm parasite Dirofilaria immitis that caused this infection. From an infected animal host, Dirofilaria immitis is carried by mosquitos to a new animal host as the heartworm larvae called microfilariae. In the new host, the larvae grow into adult worms and stay in heart and lungs blood vessels during the initial infection phase. Later, after several months heartworms enter the heart and cause severe infections.

Many big countries such as the United States, Canada, and continents Australia, Latin America, and southern Europe have reported heartworm disease in huge numbers. Most countries worldwide that have temperate or tropical climates are favorable for mosquitoes. Surprisingly, 70 species of mosquitos can transmit heartworm disease. Therefore the dogs are prone to getting heartworm infections quickly.

The severity of heartworm infection and the signs depend on the number of worms present, the immune response of the infected dog, the duration of infection, and the animal's activity level. Therefore early and correct disease detection becomes very important for the proper treatment.

The antigen detection test is the preferred method for diagnosing purposes. Bioguard Canine Heartworm (CHW) Ag Test is a sandwich lateral flow immunochromatographic assay developed and manufactured by Bioguard Corporation for the rapid and qualitative detection of Dirofilaria immitis in dog's blood.

Leishmaniosis in Dogs

Image description


Canine leishmaniosis is a significant disease prevalent in Europe, Africa, Asia, and South and Central America. In canines, Leishmaniosis is transmitted by the bites of female phlebotomine sand flies that are the vectors to the protozoan L infantum, a parasite of the genus Leishmania.

L infantum promastigotes get deposited into the animal's skin through the bites of infected sand flies and invade and replicate in the host macrophages. Localized cutaneous lesions and lymphadenopathy / renal failure are the key signs of this disease.

Diagnosis is frequently made with immunofluorescence assays or ELISA to confirm Leishmania infection. Bioguard Canine Leishmania (LSH) Ab Test is a sandwich lateral flow immunochromatographic assay developed and manufactured by Bioguard Corporation for the rapid and qualitative detection of LSH Ab in dog's blood.
