Kiwi is a beautiful medium-sized light brown dog who is a playful and loving companion. She has been diagnosed with Leishmania, a parasitic infection that can affect a dog’s immune system and cause fatigue, weight loss, and skin issues.
Despite this, Kiwi is a sweet and affectionate dog, though she can be a bit shy at first. She requires a patient owner who can provide her with a stress-free environment and a secure garden to ensure her safety.
She is the sister to Apricot and Limona and was born in June of 2014. With proper care and treatment, Kiwi can continue to live a happy and healthy life, and will make a loyal and cherished member of the family.
Dogs with Leishmania may face some challenges, but they are still loving and loyal companions who deserve a loving home. Leishmania is a parasitic infection that can affect a dog’s immune system and cause fatigue, weight loss, and skin issues such as hair loss, sores and thickened skin. These dogs may require a bit more patience, understanding, and specialized care but they are just as deserving of love and affection as any other dog. They may require a stress-free environment and a secure garden to ensure their safety. They may also need a specific treatment plan to manage their condition, which could include medication such as allopurinol, miltefosine, or other immunomodulators to manage symptoms and prevent progression of the disease. With proper care, they can live happy and healthy lives. However, it’s important to note that the prognosis for dogs with Leishmania can vary depending on the severity of the infection and the response to treatment. In some cases, the disease may progress and lead to severe organ damage and even death, despite treatment. Adopting a dog with Leishmania means to open your home and heart to a loving companion who will return that love tenfold. So, if you are willing to give a chance to a dog with Leishmania, you’ll be rewarded with a loyal and loving companion who will be grateful to you for giving them a chance.
