Anaplasmosis is an infectious bacterial disease transmitted by ticks.
Cause of anaplasmosis
Symptoms of anaplasmosis
After an incubation period of 7 to 21 days various symptoms such as fever, flu-like symptoms (headache, muscle and joint pain) and occasionally gastro-intestinal (nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea), dermatological problems (skin rash), or even confusion and pneumonia may develop.
Treatment of anaplasmosis
As the agent responsible for anaplasmosis is a bacterium, the disease can be treated by antibiotics.
