Brucella Canis, a bacterial infection that's incurable in dogs. It can affect the reproductive and lymphatic systems of dogs.
Brucella canis is a bacterial disease that's incurable in dogs and causes infertity, mobility, and fatigue issues in the canines. Recently, the disease was in focus after it infected humans in UK. While it causes only mild symptoms in humans like fever, loss of appetite, headache, fatigue etc, in dogs it can be severe. Treating bacterial infection can be tough as the virus persists in the body and while symptoms can be managed, totally eliminating the bacteria from the system is usually not possible. Brucella Canis mostly affects the reproductive and lymphatic systems of dogs. Fatigue, swollen lymph nodes, and no desire to exercise or play are common symptoms.
"Brucella Canis, a bacterial infection that infects dogs, is not widely known, but its impact on canine health should not be underestimated. This enigmatic disease can cause a range of symptoms, leaving dog owners concerned about their beloved pets," says Dr Shantanu Kalambi, Chief Veterinary Officer, Supertails.
Let's understand from Dr Kalambi the symptoms, causes, and potential treatments in order to shine light on this often-overlooked health issue for dogs.
"While Brucella Canis is not as well-known as some other canine infections, it has a significant impact on dog health and breeding programs. Signs and risks of Brucella Canis must be regularly monitored by dog owners and breeders. To reduce the transmission and effect of this bacterial infection in the canine population, early detection, adequate veterinary care, and safe breeding procedures are crucial. By being alert and cautious, we may better protect our four-legged pals from this lesser-known health risk," concludes Dr Kalambi.
