Leishmaniasis: A Growing Risk For Dogs

Dogs get some mysterious diseases and this is one you might not have heard of. 

Canine Leishmaniasis is an infection caused by a single cell organism (protozoan parasite). This parasite is called Leishmania.

In 1999, there was an outbreak of canine leishmaniasis at a Foxhound kennel in New York. Since then, there have been several other outbreaks in Foxhound kennels.
