For the pet lover in you, do take time out to read this to know, what happens when you don’t care for them?

Rocky mountain spotted disease might sound a little too fancy to interpret, but this is yet another tick borne disease just like Lyme disease or Ehrliosisis, transmitted through your pets, especially your dogs. This disease is not affected to the dogs that host them, but the humans who get bitten by the ticks fall prey to this bacterial infection. The organism that transmits the disease is termed Rickettsia rickettsii. Although the malady was first discovered in the rocky mountains, it is now very prevalent in the western parts of the United States and yet to transmit across the continents during the spring and winter season as its peak time for propagation.

Let’s take a deeper peep.

Although many people get infected within the first week of exposure from the bacteria, the signs and symptoms don’t appear until a week or two or nearly 14-15 days. The most primitive signs and symptoms of RMSD include fever and headache with mild rash in the body, fortunately the disease responds well to antibiotics so it can be considered a much safer disease. As the symptoms of this disease mimic the manifestations of other maladies it can prove a little difficult for proper diagnosis. Often the patient may be seen to be associated with nausea, vomiting, muscle weakness, concussions and  other neurological changes.
As the name suggests, a spotted nature, the Red, non itchy, inflamed, spreading rash is the most distinctive feature of this disease which generally appears within 4 or 5 days after the outburst of the initial symptoms. A few cases have also shown the manifestation of the disease without this rash, making it difficult to diagnose. Inflammation penetrating other deeper organs including the brain and heart is understood as the most common compilation of this disease. Antibiotic treatment including injections and oral supplements are used to tackle the disease in clinics while prevention is the best method to be adopted at home. While spending time outdoors, especially with your pets, try to keep yourself protected by adopting well-covered clothes and using tick repellents, most importantly keep yourself and your dogs away from the mighty action of ticks.


The generations-old mystic science of life, ayurveda, has explained all possible diseases in the form of fluctuations in the bodily biogenesis. The exact correlation to modern disease might not be available, but they are tackled with their similarities in Dosha propagations. As this snag shows a rash as its primitive feature, it may be understood as a compilation of aggravated Pitta entity, and treatment to neutralize the same is initiated. The treatment protocol including the detox to follow and the medications to be used, all depend on the condition and health status of an individual and we can not draw a specific pattern for the same.
Considering the predominance of the Pitta entity in this snag, Virechana or stipulated purgation therapy is adopted among the five purification theories to curb the spread of this disease. Oliation, swedation are among other compulsory therapies used initially to improve the quality of the patient before administering any of the detox therapies followed by the right medicinal approach.
