6 minutes

Are you planning a vacation in a southern climate and thinking about taking your animal companion with you? Then you should find out about Mediterranean diseases that could affect your four-legged friend at alphazoo.

Leishmaniasis: The invisible enemy

One of the most common Mediterranean diseases is leishmaniasis. Transmitted by sand flies, this parasite causes skin lesions, weight loss, fever, and more. Prevention is particularly important here, as the disease can be treated but not curable.

Babesiosis: The Red Dog Catcher

Babesiosis is transmitted through tick bites and attacks your dog's red blood cells. Signs may include fever, loss of appetite and dark urine. Early treatment is crucial to recovery.

Ehrlichiosis: An Underrated Killer

This disease is also transmitted by ticks. It attacks white blood cells and can lead to symptoms such as fever, nosebleeds and swollen lymph nodes. It is important to begin treatment quickly to avoid serious complications.

Dirofilariasis: The heartworm

Dirofilariasis is a dangerous disease transmitted through the bite of infected mosquitoes. It affects your dog's heart and lungs and can be fatal without treatment.

Hepatozoonosis: The Unknown Threat

Hepatozoonosis is less well known but can cause serious symptoms such as fever, weight loss and muscle pain. Early diagnosis and treatment is crucial to the recovery process.
