Molly is a female Pachon Navarro breed.
She was in an awful state a year ago when she was rescued from the fields. A cricket ball size hernia, bleeding sores all over her body from Leishmania.
After the treatment, operation and lots of TLC she is a lovely healthy dog just on a tablet a day.
As with this breed she likes exercise but plenty of cuddles as well.
She has been spayed.
Molly has Leshmaniasis, 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.
