Infectious diseases can lead to the development of arthritis. Rickettsial arthritis occurs with spotted fever in the Rocky Mountains and canine erlichiosis, and spirocheteous arthritis occurs with Lyme disease. (All these diseases are transmitted by ticks.) Fungal arthritis is a rare complication of systemic fungal attack.

Treatment: Most diseases transmitted by mites respond to treatment with doxycycline or tetracycline. In some dogs, joint damage is permanent.
