Brucellosis in Dogs

Overview


Brucellosis describes a bacteria normally infects the genitals and lymphatic system, but can also spread to the eye, kidney, and intervertebral disc (causing disco spondylitis).

Symptoms of brucellosis in dogs include abortion in female dogs and scrotal inflammation and orchitic (inflammation of the testicles) in male dogs.

Infection of the eye can cause uveitis, and infection of the intervertebral disc can cause pain or weakness. Blood testing of the dogs prior to breeding can prevent the spread of this disease.

  • Lethargy
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Difficulty walking
  • Back pain
  • Weakness
  • Vaginal discharge
  • Swollen testicles
  • Inflammation of scrotum


Treatment


Brucellosis is treated with antibiotics.

Cost to Treat: $50 to $100
