Carina a gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous girl who craves affection and is bright as a button. Really great recall off lead. Very keen to be fully included in a family of her own. Great with all the dogs here but sometimes a little bossy but not aggressive. Good with my kids aged 7-13. Has lived with cats before and ignores mine. Will learn easily and wants to be cuddled. She really needs an a stable family life.
Positive for leishmania but no symptoms at all and under treatment of allopurinol. Leishmaniasis is a disease that is transmitted by the sand fly Mosquito in Spain, A sand fly has to bite an infected dog and carry the infected blood to the next dog it feeds from and will then infect that dog, You cannot catch Leishmaniasis from a dog with the condition, you need to be bitten by a sandfly and we do not have any in the UK, so a dog with Leish is not contagious to you or your family. Mediterranean Leish is not the same as African Continent Leish which can be transmitted to humans.
In the Uk vets do not have much knowledge of this condition and often can give advice that may be over cautious. We us Vets Klinic and they now have a good understanding of the condition.
Dogs who come to the UK with Leish, come with their blood tests and medication. Stress in dogs with Leish can lead to dogs having a higher reading and once settled in a loving home many dogs reading lowers, sometimes to the point they no longer need medication.
All dogs coming to us from Spain are prepared under the strict TRACES rules with their own pet passport.
