Sand Flies Can Be Deadly for Your Dog!

Thursday, November 21, 2019
posted by Jim Murphy

Leishmaniasis is potentially fatal disease caused by a parasite. Dogs can become infected when bitten by an infected sand fly. Sand flies become infected by biting an already infected animal. Signs of canine leishmaniasis include dry skin, dandruff, hair loss around the eyes and muzzle and skin sores especially on the dogs head and legs. Weight loss can be severe. Canine leishmaniansis was recently discovered in hunting packs of fox hounds in the southeastern United States. In areas with infected sand flies, dogs should wear collars with impregnated insecticide.  They should also stay indoors when sand flies are most active from just before sunset until sun up.
