Tick Borne Diseases

Difference between Ehrlichiosis and anaplasmosis

Ehrlichiosis and anaplasmosis are caused by rickettsial-like bacteria. Ehrlichiosis is caused mainly by Ehrlichia chaffeensis; anaplasmosis is caused by Anaplasma phagocytophilum. Both are transmitted to humans and dogs by ticks. Symptoms resemble those of Rocky Mountain spotted fever except that a rash is much less common.

Difference between Lyme disease and Anaplasmosis

Anaplasmosis is transmitted to humans and dogs by tick bites primarily from the black-legged tick (Ixodes scapularis) and the western black-legged tick (Ixodes pacificus). These are the same ticks that transmit Lyme disease Moreover, co-infections between Lyme and Anaplasmosis have been reported.

Difference between Lyme disease and Ehrlichiosis

Unlike Lyme disease, Ehrlichiosis is considered an acute infection without chronic long-term consequences. Its severity varies from person to person, dog to dog. Many people/dogs exposed to the disease agent exhibit no symptoms, while others suffer mild symptoms that resolve without treatment.
