Default Disease/pest prevalence in US in dogs/cats

This is a pretty cool tool. Granted, if there's no data for your
county, doesn't mean there aren't any cases of whatever you're looking
for. And I have no idea where the data came from.

You can look for tick borne disease, heartworm and intestinal parasites:

Our tick-borne level is pretty low here, but heartworm and intestinal
parasites are very high. Lottsa stupid owners.........

The biggest problem we have here in central Spain is leishmaniasis,
which particularly affects greyhound-type dogs that sleep out of doors
in stockyards round the village. The vector is the sand-fly, and short-
haired dogs seem more likely to be bitten. OTOH, they seem less
affected by ticks, ie the ticks are less likely to jump on them and
stay on them than is true for long-haired dogs.

The best way to protect the dogs is to put them in a shed at night,
but the cultural norm is to give very little shelter for hunting dogs,
often just a corrugated lean-to with no front or back.

Now, within local hunting dog culture, there are some exceptionally
good owners, and others who are exceptionally bad ones. The good ones
put their dogs in a shed at night, with mosquito netting. The bad ones
have emaciated, tick-ridden dogs. What would make most difference is
to change the cultural norm, maybe by public vet talks to hunters on
hunting dog husbandry. Some of the bad owners have obvious
psychological quirks, not so much stupidity as being unable to
organise their lives. So not everyone would be influenced by cultural
norms being changed, just that it would help to reduce the death rate
of local dogs.

People in this village were very poor in the 1940s and 1950s, to the
extent that many suffered from malnutrition. When humans had a high
death rate, there was less energy to spare for dogs. So yes, cultural
norms are affected by how well off people are. If you are struggling
to feed your kids, there is not much energy left over for dogs. But
it's not a simple issue.
