n The Dairy Mail - Become tick-wise : how to treat gallsickness (part 2) doctor's diary

In the previous edition, I discussed anaplasmosis as a disease. This month I will discuss its treatment and prevention. For many years the treatment of choice has been the tetracyclines. However, the most recent research has proven that the imidocarbs are arguably more effective, although it does come with a few disadvantages. I would still recommend treating a gallsickness case (confirmed by a blood smear/vet) with a short acting tetracycline at the recommended dosage (preferably not long-acting formulations, as these take longer to take effect).
