Rickettsia parkeri Infection



Treatment with antibiotics can control the disease.

As with other diseases transmitted by fleas or ticks, ectoparasite control is the basis of prevention. Products which repel and kill ticks and fleas, such as those containing permethrins, are the appropriate means of choice for dogs. The sentinel position which has been attributed to dogs makes an ectoparasite control even more important.
