Cause‐oriented testing and treatment
Anaplasmosis is an infectious disease caused by the pathogen (Anaplasma phagocytophilum). Dogs are usually affected when they are bitten by a certain type of tick (Ixodes ricinus) while walking. The pathogens then attack the dog’s white blood cells, multiply in them and then destroy the blood cells. Dogs then show high fever, suffer from diarrhoea, vomiting and shortness of breath or even develop lameness or a reluctance to move due to inflammation and swelling in the joints.
