The three Ehrlichia species have the potential of zoonotic transmission through vectors (monocytic canine ehrlichiosis

); although the role of the dog is not clear yet in the epidemiology of the disease in humans [2, 19-21].
Rickettsiae and related ehrlichial organisms are obligate intracellular bacteria carried by mites, fleas, ticks, and lice and are the agents of numerous tick-borne diseases found in Virginia, such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever (Rickettsia rickettsii), Tidewater spotted fever (Rickettsia parkeri), Human monotropic ehrlichiosis
