2.5 Million Dogs in Europe Infected
With the Leishmania Parasite

“Mosquito”-like insects transmit this potentially deadly infection to dogs

Canine leishmaniosis is spread to dogs
by bites from infected sandflies – often
wrongly referred to as mosquitoes. Sandflies
are widespread and can be found in
many habitats in Southern Europe.
If your dog is infected with the parasite,
symptoms may not show immediately.
Signs to look for include fever, hair loss
(particularly around the eyes), weight loss,
skin sores and nail problems. Internal organs
are also affected, which can lead to
anaemia, arthritis, and severe kidney failure.
Canine leishmaniosis is often deadly;
treatment can only control the symptoms,
but not cure the disease.
The infection is passed between
dogs by the bite of a sandfly. Despite the
availability of repellent sprays, spotons
and collars, canine leishmaniosis
is still a significant threat in Europe.
There is now a vaccine available!
