I am guilty. I did not read everything.

Did anyone mention the Leishmaniasis? That is what killed the dog pictured on the first post. I don't know a whole lot about it, except it is spread by sand flies. There are three different types. At least one of them is fatal, if left untreated. Since it had affected the organs of the dog that was euthanized, I'd say he had that one.

I vaguely remember a FB friend from Portugal talking about a friend's dog who had contracted the disease. He said that treatment was very expensive. That was a few years back. Perhaps things have improved. I know nothing of diagnosis, or prevention for the disease. Maybe one of you smart people know more.

I used a topical essential oil on Fama when we were deployed. I got it from CarmsPack. It smelled of eucalyptus and had some other stuff in it too. You could see insects actively avoiding her.

When a dog saves the life of a man, it becomes clear that partnership knows no bounds.
