Re: Dog owners warned about new tick disease

Unfortunately Babesiose (also called Piroplasmosis) has been found in Switzerland for some time now, but not as common as the other tick born diseases so some vets still might not think to test for it given the symptoms. If tick born disease is suspected, insist on including Babesiose in the test.

Ullainga's dog came down with it, see this thread from a few years ago:
