Ehrlichiosis in GSDs and Dobermans?
 
When the vet told me that Varick had Ehrlichiosis, she gave me an informative packet on the disease. I read it, and was a bit confused....
It said that the disease is "most severe in German Shepherds and Doberman Pinschers."
Is this true? If so, why these two breeds?

I'm sorry. :(
Has yours ever shown symptoms? I haven't noticed a change in Varick, and hopefully, I won't at all.

no, they've never been 'clinical', but I do keep a close eye on anything unusual.

All my dogs have tested positive for Lyme or erlichia at one time or another. Honestly I've never had a problem after treatment. Ticks are horrible by me.

Agreed!
I was so surprised. I've never had a problem before. When the vet tested, I thought nothing of it.
