Maps of Reported Cases of Diseases In Dogs

The following maps highlight the number of reported positive cases of ehrlichiosis (E. canis), Lyme disease, heartworm disease and anaplasmosis in dogs across all regions of the United States and Canada.

Additional Tick & Vector Borne Diseases

Bartonella

Bartonella organisms have been detected in ticks, fleas, cats, mice, rats, voles, pigs, dogs, ear mites, lice, flies, bobcats, elk, animal saliva, dust mites, dolphins, striped skunks, raccoons, mountain lions, bats, leeches, bed bugs, monkeys, bandicoots, mardos, deer, squirrels, coyotes, red foxes, golden jackals, rock hyraxes, southern white-breasted hedgehogs, Cairo spiny mice, Tristram's jirds and house mice.

Research is needed to determine if there are additional carriers, transmitters and more unidentified species of Bartonella. Physicians must be trained to look for Bartonella infections in their patients and accurate tests must be developed to detect Bartonella species in both animals and humans.

Ehrlichia & Anaplasmosis

Ehrlichiosis is caused mainly by Ehrlichia chaffeensis; anaplasmosis is caused by Anaplasma phagocytophilum. Both are transmitted to humans & pets by ticks. Symptoms resemble those of Rocky Mountain spotted fever except that a rash is much less common.
