Babesia Question


Recommended Posts

A friend has recently adopted a 6 year old girl who was very ill with babesia 2 years ago - lethargy; anorexia & weight loss; difficulty breathing; "internal bleeding". She was treated with 2 injections of Imizol. She is now seemingly very healthy and happy. (and very sweet :wub: )

Can this disease reoccur? Does she need to watch for anything in particular? Does she need followup bloodwork of any kind? Anthing she needs to know? Thank you all in advance.

She could be reinfected if she had another tick after the shots. It's a good question to ask on the tick list :)

She was treated up here in the frozen North :lol . So she won't have been reinfected.

I dont believe the ticks up here carry the same diseases they do in the states. Caliloka has Babesia and I know that it came from the US, and someone told me that our ticks in Canada dont carry the virus that causes Babesia or Echericha (I know I just massacred those 2 names, haha!)

Yes I realize that. What I'm asking is if there are long term effects post treatment that the new adopter needs to be aware of. This dog is a bounce and she has very little information other than what I mentioned in the original post.
