The age was given by the owner or calculated by dental examination, and the body condition score was assessed using a slightly modified version of the method described by Laflamme Consequently, seroconversion can be used as a serologic technique to corroborate signs that suggest an acute infection with Ehrlichia or Anaplasma.
