Dogs have always been man’s best friend but you better watch out for yourself and for your dog because there’s a new disease that was just discovered.
A disease that’s widespread to the Middle East, “Leishmaniasis” causes people to have open wounds, have hard time swallowing and breathing, and even instances of nose bleeding.
The things is, there’s not just one type of this disease. It has 3 kinds that have been discovered. Diseases can mutate over time and it’s a fact that there could still be other types that are unchecked.
1. Cutaneous – This one occurs when a bite mark gets a horrible scar that will eventually heal after a month and a half.
2. Mucocutaneous – This particular type causes people to have skin and mucosal ulcers.
3. Visceral – The worst one, it can be fatal without the proper and immediate medical attention.
How does it spread? Blood Transfusion! The thing is, fleas and ticks can pass this from your pet to you so you better make sure that you are using nets with insecticides if you’re sleeping in a place known to have a lot of them.
Of course, self-medication is never the answer and you should also see your doctor if symptoms persist.
