Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to assess the prevalence of Helicobacter spp. in stomach of dogs with renal failure and to document the histopathological changes in Helicobacter spp. associated uremic gastritis in dogs. The present study consisted of 10 apparently healthy dogs and 35 dogs with chronic renal failure identified by detailed clinical examination, hematology, serum biochemistry, urinalysis and nephrosonography. Gastroscopy aided mucosal biopsies were taken using gastrofibrescope (OLYMPUS type GF*) in apparently healthy dogs and dogs with various grades of Azotenia. The biopsy samples were subjected to Rapid Urease testing, Culturing of Helicobacter spp., Routine histopathology and Histopathology with special staining for Helicobacter spp.Cases showing positive results in at least two identification procedures among the three followed in this were considered as positive fir Helicobacter spp.Mucosal hyperplasia, increased goblet cell activity, sub-mucosal hemorrhage, atrophy of gastric glands, severe fibrosis and ulceration with mononuclear cell infiltration were the histopathological findings in Helicobacter spp. associated uremic gastritis in dogs.
