Canine Babesiosis

23 March 2016

Babesiosis is caused by infection with a microscopic organism called Babesia which infects red blood cells causing anaemia, fever and splenic enlargement. There are a number of different species worldwide with Babesia Canis Canis being the most common in Europe and this is spread by tick bites by the species of tick called Dermacentor Reticulates. Until recently Babesia hadn’t been reported in the UK in dogs which hadn’t travelled abroad, however recently cases have been identified in dogs in Essex that haven’t travelled. Naïve ticks, which don’t carry the infection can become infected by biting a dog that has Babesiosis. Further transmission of the infection within the tick population can occur to eggs in the female tick’s reproductive tract resulting in infection of offspring.
