Update your bookmarks if you have the tick list info overview page booklinked. It's been moved, and the format changed a bit:
https://sites.google.com/site/tickbornediseaseindogs/

Also added to the ehrlichia section, an interesting case of E. Ewingii,
http://www.idexx.com/view/xhtml/en_us/sm...2case-study.jsf

This is not tested on the SNAP 4Dx. It appears that the only way to diagnose it is by direct visualization, or PCR, antibody tests, as far as I can find so far, are not available.

Added this to the kidney health sticky, it came through the tick list:

About the BUN specifically:
http://www.vet.uga.edu/VPP/clerk/mckee/index.php

It has about the most complete discussion of BUN-only that I've seen.

Two good mushroom products added to the cancer sticky, but I don't have any links handy.

Power Mushrooms, made by Health Concerns

Mycoplex-7 by Gourmet Mushrooms Inc, not as well tolerated as the Power Mushrooms for sensitive individuals, but a more complete mushroom formula.

I spoke with the director of the tick lab today and added a little note to the tick sticky, but wanted to place it here.

When blood is taken, when the platelets are clotted, it is usually attributed to a process that happens during the blood draw or processing (I can't remember the details).

However, if there is an Ehrlichia Canis infection, there is a protein in the blood from that that causes clotting, so that could be part of the disease process, and not the actual blood draw.

Since that's not widely known, I wanted to post it here too.

A vet on the tick list reported back from a webinar by Bayer about managing ticks. Nothing real earth shattering, bottom line, it's not easy. Here's the scary fact that I'm going to add to the TBD sticky:

*New pathogens are being found at almost the rate of one every 18 months - Ehrlichia and Rickettsia.*

I knew there were new ones, but that's more than I realized. This is yet another reason to treat the dog, not the test - there is no way we can test for all of these - it's a moving target frown

Off to add this to the tick sticky - a new TBD that is viral in nature:


Heartland Virus
http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2012/08/...red-in-missouri
http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa1203378

Quote:
Two Missouri farmers have been infected with a brand-new tick-borne virus that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is calling the Heartland virus.

The men recovered but suffered serious illness that required hospital care and weeks of convalescence. Symptoms included fever, severe fatigue, headache and nausea. Their platelet counts plummeted, but even though platelets are necessary for blood clotting, the men didn't suffer abnormal bleeding....

...the new virus is in the phlebovirus family, which contains more than 70 members. And here's another twist: Heartland virus appears to be a cousin of another new human virus called severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome virus, discovered last year in China. Another possible cousin may be Bhanja virus, a little-studied virus that has been found in some mammals, birds and reptiles in Asia, Africa and Europe.

I was looking up some knee stuff, so I added the info to the Health stickies. Sad to say, a number of threads on this: http://germanshepherdhome.net/forum/ubbt...e_Pr#Post268147 (I might have become carried away with the links)

Wanted to point out this blog post, which I thought was interesting:
