Abstract:

The present study was conducted to investigate a detailed occurrence of different dermatological problems in dogs in and around Kolkata and to determine the changes in the haematological and biochemical parameters of affected dogs. During a period of 6 months 156 dogs with primary complain of dermatological discomfort were studied, out of which the maximum number of animals were affected with skin disease caused by parasites i.e. 48 (30.78%) followed by bacteria 45 (28.85%). Dogs below 1 year of age were mostly susceptible (35.54%) to various dermatological disorders and the least susceptible group were more than 4 years of age (16.03%). Higher occurrence was observed in male dogs (61.02%) in comparison to females. Results revealed that spitz were more predisposed to various dermatological disorders (27.56%) followed by Labrador (19.87%). On examination of skin scrapping sarcoptic mange and demodectic mange were the commonly identified mites. The bacteria isolated from pyoderma of dogs were mostly Staphylococcus spp. followed by E.coli and Klebsiella sp. The haemoglobin, PCV and TEC values of affected animals had significantly decreased. The TLC significantly increased with neutrophilia and eosinophilia was recorded. The total protein and albumin had significantly increased while serum globulin had decreased in affected animals.
