Prevention is better than cure  
    Routine checkups are essential especially after a certain age to make early treatment before the disease develops.


    A vaccine is a biological preparation that improves immunity to a particular disease. A vaccine typically contains an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism, and is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe or its toxins. The agent stimulates the body's immune system to recognize the agent as foreign, destroy it, and "remember" it, so that the immune system can more easily recognize and destroy any of these microorganisms that it later encounters.
    • Vaccines can be prophylactic ( to prevent or ameliorate the effects of a future infection by any natural or "wild" pathogen), or therapeutic.
    • For vaccination is essential to a good clinical examination.
    • Vaccination for pets should only be performed if the pets  are  healthy. Vaccines can fail or cause dangerous reactions if administered to an unhealthy pet. 
    • Whenever vaccines are administered pets must be treated for parasites.
    • The health of our pets, it is also our health.Three of every 10 pets have parasites.

    Canine leishmaniasis
    •   It is a present illness in the countries of the Mediterranean.
    • Leishmania are transmitted by the bite of female phlebotomine sand flies (Phlebotomus spp.). While biting, females inject saliva into the skin, causing allergic reactions, and inject the infective stages.Dogs are the main peridomestic reservoirs for zoonotic leishmaniosis in the Mediterranean area with a seroprevalence ranging from two to almost 80 %.In general, during the course of the disease the parasite spreads into the following organs: the lymph nodes, spleen, bone marrow, liver, kidneys, pancreas, testicles, lungs, eyes, joints and bones.
    • Sometimes the disease can become very serious and the final outcome can be tragic: the sacrifice of the dog. This drastic measure only applies to those animals that are severely affected or not respond to treatment. Currently, the disease appears to be controlled and there are methods to extend the life of the animal and even save it.
    • The season with the highest incidence of leishmaniasis begins in April and May, when warm temperatures favor the spread of these insects, and ends in September or October. The female 'Phlebotomus' is active mainly in the sunset and sunrise and it is in these times of day when you can infect dogs. One possible solution to avoid the sting is not from walking your pet at these times, and avoid sleeping outdoors. There are also insect repellents that can be employed.
    • If the Pet has been infected, symptoms may take a long time to appear, is likely to spend even years. As soon as symptoms appear, we put the dog treatment. The reaction time will increase the chances of success of the medication. It is important to conduct an annual analysis to see if your pet has contracted the disease and measures may be taken more quickly.
