Canine babesiosis is a significant tick-borne disease caused by various species of the protozoan genus Babesia. Dogs of all ages can be affected by Babesia spp., but young puppies are more commonly affected. Dogs infected with babesiosis may present with various clinical signs, including abnormally dark urine, depression, lethargy, fever, weakness, vomiting, pale gums and anorexia.

A precise and fast diagnosis plays a vital role in treating infected dogs. Diagnostic tests include light microscopy, serological diagnosis and molecular diagnosis. Treatment for canine babesiosis consists of three components: treatment to eliminate the parasite, blood transfusions to treat severe anemia, and supportive care for the complications. The most effective preventive measure is avoiding exposure to the vector by routinely dipping or spraying pets or using tick collars or spot-on preparations.

About the speaker:
Dr. Yung-Tsun Lo, DVM, Ph.D., an expert in veterinary virology, immunology, molecular biology, and clinical microbiology, working as a technical support manager at Bioguard Corporation.

2022 AAHA Canine Vaccination Guidelines

Vaccination is a cornerstone of canine preventive healthcare and one of the most cost-effective ways of maintaining a dog's health, longevity, and quality of life. Canine vaccination also serves a public health function by forming a barrier against several zoonotic diseases affecting dogs and humans. Canine vaccines are broadly categorized as containing core and noncore immunizing antigens, with administration recommendations based on the assessment of individual patient risk factors. The guidelines include a comprehensive table listing canine core and noncore vaccines and a recommended vaccination and revaccination schedule for each vaccine. The guidelines explain the relevance of different vaccine formulations containing a modified-live virus, inactivated, and recombinant immunizing agents.

All dogs should have the following core vaccines (unless there's a medical reason not to vaccinate):

  • Distemper
  • Adenovirus
  • Parvovirus
  • +/- Parainfluenza
  • Rabies

In addition to these, other vaccines are just as essential for some dogs based on their lifestyle and risk. These include:

  • Leptospira (should be considered for all dogs based on increasing prevalence)
  • Lyme disease
  • Bordetella
  • Canine influenza
  • Rattlesnake toxoid

Lyme and other tick-borne diseases are on the rise:

Transmitted by ticks, Lyme disease (Borrelia burgdorferi) is spreading because of the expansion of the tick vector (Ixodes scapularis) host habitat range, primarily deer and rodents, and migratory birds carrying ticks to new areas. Warmer weather and longer seasons for tick reproduction are also factors. Increasing temperatures and warmer winters increase the likelihood that ticks can survive in habitats that once would have killed them, allowing their life cycles to speed up.

In regions of historically high prevalence and forecast regions of increased risk, the CAPC suggests that veterinarians reinforce recommendations of aggressive tick control and advise pet owners about the importance of year-round prevention. Lyme disease has the potential to spread anywhere the tick vector is present and vaccination should be considered for high-risk patients.

PCR, ELISA, Western Blot, and joint fluid analysis are some traditional blood tests used for diagnosing Lyme disease. As an advancement in modern technology, Bioguard has developed and manufactured a sandwich lateral flow immunochromatographic 4-in-1 assay for the rapid and qualitative detection of Borrelia burgdorferi antibodies and other prevalent canine vector-borne diseases in dog's blood.

The 4-in1 combo test developed by Bioguard can detect:

  • Borrelia burgdorferi antibodies (for Lyme Disease),
  • Dirofilaria immitis antigen ( for Canine Heartworm Disease),
  • Anaplasma phagocytophilum/platysantibodies (for Anaplasmosis),
  • Ehrlichiosis canis antibodies (for Canine Ehrlichiosis)
