This is observed in 75–90% of the animals treated. However, parasitological cure of the dogs is not achieved and relapses are the rule in about 75% of the cases 6–8 months posttreatment [40–42]. As observed in human leishmaniasis, the presence of resistant strains of L. infantum to meglumine antimoniate in dogs has sporadically been reported [40,43]; this resistance development could be related to inappropriate under-dosage of the drug. As mentioned, treatment schedules in canine leishmaniasis are variable and this holds also true for meglumine antimoniate dosing.
