News and Events, Questions and Answers

The Orphanage Needs Your Help! - Our local orphanage near the Pemex on the road to La Pas desperately needs your help. They have received an electric bill for $10,000 pesos and can't even begin to pay it. There are at least 30 people living on the property and all their electricity is on one meter. They are, of course, billed at the highest rate of CFE even though they are a non-profit and all the kids come to them through the government. No breaks!

Please help them out with a donation. Banorte peso account 0666456418 or dollar account 0662765028. hogardelnino.org.mx - Nancy, nancyserfas [ - a t - ] aol.com

Ehrlichiosis (Ehrlichia) Alert For Dog Owners - Recently in the Todos Santos area several dogs have died from Ehrlichia. According to a number of veterinarians from the U.S., 99.8 percent of the dogs living in our area have this disease. The illness is transmitted by a tick bite, which passes an ehrlichia organism into the blood stream. Even though your pet may not have ticks on their body, all it takes is one bite!

Signs of Ehrlichia include, but are not limited to, fever, discharge from the nose and eyes in the acute (first) stage of the illness (similar to distemper signs). There are no outward signs of the second stage. The chronic (third) stage: the dog loses weight, acquires a cough, the gums turn pale (just a few of the most obvious signs), and the dog can die.

There are ways to prevent this disease: you can have your dog tested (expensive) - and vets do not always recommend the test because of the cost. Or give your pet Doxycycline once a year for 28 days. Dosage depends on the weight of your dog.

Important Note: if your dog is tested during the acute (first) stage of infection, the test can be falsely negative because the body did not have time to make antibodies! Please pass this on. - Amigos de los Animales de Todos Santos, bajakitties [ - a t - ] yahoo.com
