dc.descriptionA cross-sectional study was performed to estimate the prevalence of infection of <em>Ehrlichia canis </em>in dogs and to explore the factors associated with the presence of the bacteria. The study was carried out in a village in Yucatan, Mexico. Blood samples were obtained from 200 dogs. Samples were analyzed by nested-PCR to detect the presence of <em>E. canis</em> DNA and thrombocyte counts were calculated. One-hundred and forty of the dogs (70 %) were found to be infested with ticks. A total of 1 116 ticks were recovered and all were identi ed as <em>Rhipicephalus sanguineus</em>. The prevalence of E. canis infection was 69.2 %. None of the variables studied (gender, age, body condition, platelet-related bleeding, thrombocytopenia, and presence of ticks) showed association with <em>E. canis </em>infection. In conclusion, there is a high probability that dogs living in Yucatan, Mexico are infected with <em>E. canis. </em>
