What is Chagas disease? 

Chagas disease, also known as American Trypanosomiasis, is an infection that is primarily observed in Latin America. In recent years, however, this infection has been observed at various sites in the Southern United States, including Texas, Louisiana, South Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, and Oklahoma. Chagas disease is caused by Trypanosoma cruzi, a blood-borne protozoal parasite.

How is Chagas disease spread?

Chagas disease is spread by the bite of certain insects, including the Mexican Kissing Beetle and other related insects. These beetles lay in the bedding of dogs and other animals, feeding on the animals' blood as they sleep.

What are the clinical signs of Chagas disease?

The clinical signs of Chagas disease are variable and non-specific. Most infected dogs are asymptomatic or can demonstrate subtle signs, such as lethargy, decreased appetite, and weight loss. In more severe cases, you may also notice more severe signs, such as fainting, exercise intolerance, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Chagas Facts:

2. Dogs often show no symptoms until it's too late.
