Currently, there are believed to be three main species of ticks on Guam; however, an island wide survey has not been conducted recently. Recent studies have found multiple pathogens in the ticks from deer and wild pigs on Guam, and small animal veterinarians report finding Anaplasma spp., Ehrlichia spp., and Babesia spp. regularly in dogs and cats. Despite these preliminary findings, a full characterization of the pathogens found in the ticks on Guam has not been done.
