Know the risks! – Protect against Ticks
After Ehrlichia exposure in E. canis regions, dogs are 300% more likely to develop Chronic Kidney Disease.
Symptomatic dogs that have been exposed to ticks infected with B. burgdorferi or Ehrlichia have an increased risk of multisystemic disease.
This study supports that dogs who test positive for Lyme disease or Ehrlichia are associated with statistically significant increased risk of developing Chronic Kidney Disease.
