Leishmania is the third most important canine disease worldwide, caused by a sandfly. It bites an infected dog, then passes on the disease by biting another dog. It is diagnosed by blood test and, if caught soon enough, can be treated. Untreated, the dog will die. The disease is preventable by the use of a Scalibor collar (similar to a flea collar) but unfortunately these are expensive. Now there is a new cheaper alternative.
