For therapy, several drugs have been used, including diminazene aceturate, pentamidine isethionate, quinapyramin sulfate, and isometamidium chloride. The duration of the therapy is highly variable, being dependent on the Trypanosoma species involved and dog’s response to therapy. Dogs treated with these trypanocides might present side effects, which can vary from local reactions to tremor, nystagmus, ataxia, convulsions, vomiting. After treatment, relapses are common.
